Second Helpings

DTC Destinations: A Second Helping of Westword Food & Drink, November 9-13

The Denver Tech Center is the happening place to be this week. Troy Guard unveiled his southern outpost of Los Chingones on Monday in the new Belleview Station development, while Gretchen Kurtz had a wine time at the Palate Food + Wine in the Landmark complex. 

There aren't any 24-hour diners in the DTC, though, so if you want to pull an all-nighter with the aid of strong coffee and a country skillet, you'll have to head closer to the city center. If you're looking for just the right spot to haunt in your nocturnal amblings, check out our list of the best all-night eateries in town. Or maybe an early night with a warm cup of French onion soup is more your speed; here are a few off-beat options.
