Is Chile Rojo ready to take off?

The current issue of United Airlines's Hemispheres magazine devotes its "Three Perfect Days" feature to Denver. Most of the restaurant/bar picks are the usual suspects -- Duo Restaurant, the Cruise Room, the Lodge at Sunspot (while skiing at Winter Park), Fruition (after surviving skiing at Winter Park) -- with a few slightly out-there: Snooze (for breakfast), MCA Cafe (while visiting the Museum of Contemporary Art) and Limelight Supper Club (a snack after the theater), there's one surprise: El Chile Rojo.

Of all the Mexican joints in town, United picked this colorful, family-owned spot at 801 Santa Fe Drive, inexplicably passing right by the venerable El Noa Noa and El Taco de Mexico just down the street.
