New Summer Restaurant Week Showcases Colorado's Fresh Produce -- and Fresh Air

Denver Restaurant Week is about to begin -- and it's not February. Traditionally, this two-week showcase of Denver area restaurants has taken place after the winter holidays, but this year it's being split in two -- one week in the usual February slot, but now August gets a week too. The new Summer Restaurant Week, which starts August 23, celebrated last night with a festive launch party held at the Cable Center on the DU campus. Several participating chefs were on hand with samples of their new summer menus. At the event, we caught up with Rich Grant, Communications Director for Visit Denver, to explore what this chopped-up schedule means for restaurants and diners.
