This week, Gretchen Kurtz reviewed Comida Cantina, a new restaurant that is heating up the Source. Lori Midson talked to Derek Dietz, chef/owner of the revived Bocadillo for this week's Chef and Tell. And Mark Antonation continued his travels up Federal Boulevard, stopping at and this weekMasa Asian Kitchen, which is a travel destination in itself with dishes from Japan, China, Vietnam and Thailand.

Also this week, we finally learned that Chipotle is a not-so-secret partner with Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson, the founders of Frasca, in Pizzeria Locale. And The expansion of microbreweries into the suburbs continued with Caution Brewing opening its second location in Lakewood. And that wasn't the only opening in town....

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
