Eat Days a Week

Paris on the Platte, the classic coffeehouse that served as a civilized outpost on Platte Street long before that part of town was tamed, is in the process of opening a wine bar. But across the street, La Taza Café closed its doors for good on Valentine's Day. If anyone out there needs some slightly used restaurant equipment, owner Regina Chavez y Sanchez has everything on the block available at fire-sale prices. And speaking of fires, by the time this paper hits the stands, Griff's on Broadway -- the drive-thru that caught fire the day my review of the joint came out ("Cheeseburgers in Paradise," October 2, 2003) -- should be open for business. Normally, I'm not a superstitious man, but since I seem to be swinging a bit of bad hoodoo with three recent review-day disasters at places I really liked, for safety's sake, that's all I'm going to say about Griff's for now.
