First look: Sugarmill opens on Upper Larimer with sweets galore

Upper Larimer is experiencing a serious case of sugar shock now that Sugarmill, a new dessert bar and lounge from Noah French, pastry chef of TAG, is teasing everyone who walks through the door with extravagant display cases of cookies and cupcakes, French macarons and fat muffins, cakes and croissants, parfaits and tarts. The alluring sweets, all of which are created in an open display kitchen where French is front and center, are complemented by a lunch menu of sandwiches and salads and a dinner menu that highlights heartier dishes like turkey pot pie and short-rib tortellini. The temple to all things sweet and savory, which opened over the weekend, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday and dinner only on Saturday.

Last week, we gave you a preview of the still-under-construction quarters, along with several of French's dishes. Here's a second photo journey of the finished space and the sugar highs.
