This week Gretchen Kurtz reviewed Old Major, where chef/owner Justin Brunson is on a mission to introduce items like foie gras, truffles and caviar to people who aren't familiar with fancier food. Mark Antonation continued his trip up Federal Boulevard with a stop atPho 79, and Lori Midson chatted with Kelly Whitaker of Pizzeria Basta about his philosophy in the kitchen and his plans for a Denver restaurant.
