Pantaleone's is reborn, Prima is gone: A second helping of Cafe Society, April 28-May 2

This week in Cafe Society, Gretchen Kurtz reviewed a restaurant just featured on Kitchen Nightmares, Pantaleone's, and discovered that Gordon Ramsay's wake-up call had done some good. For Chef and Tell, Lori Midson talked with Chris Canales, exec chef of Volta Mediterranean Restaurant in Boulder, about what it takes to be a chef and his favorite spot right now. And Mark Antonation, our former Federal Case correspondent, has embarked on a new adventure: Ethniche, which will explore different cuisines around Denver. And as we moved into May, we rounded up all the openings and closings of the past month for our Restaurant Roll Call for April.
