Cafe Society

From The Plimoth to the real McCoy's, a second helping of Cafe Society March 10-14

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
