Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

This week in Cafe Society, Gretchen Kurtz reviewed The Plimoth, a new spot that may help transform a long-ignored neighborhood. Lori Midson talked to chef Eric Cimino of Luca D'Italia about what it's like to work in one of Frank Bonanno's kitchens, what he would eat for dinner if he could have anything, anywhere, and more in this week's Chef and Tell. And Mark Antonation found some local charm at McCoy's in A Federal Case.

Also this week, Frank Ocean allegedly told Denver-based chain Chipotle to "Fuck Off" on a check that mysteriously did not include those words when it was actually delivered. Colorado dropped from first on the list of least obese states, losing to Montana, of all places. And we also rounded up tej places to drink and eat your way through St. Patrick's Day weekend.

In other action on the Denver dining scene.... OPENING THIS WEEK*: Guard and Grace, 1801 California Street John Holly's Asian Bistro, 1028 South Gaylord Street Xtreme Action, 1600 Champa Street

CLOSING THIS WEEK: Nooch Vegan Market, 3360 Larimer Street (moving to the Baker neighborhood)

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
