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

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.

OPENING THIS WEEK*: Bistro Barbes, 5021 East 28th Avenue Blue Spruce Brewing, 4151 East County Line Road Pepper Asian Bistro, 2831 East Colfax Avenue Teriyaki Madness, 2720 South Colorado Boulevard

REOPENING THIS WEEK: Bitter Bar, 835 Walnut Street

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.
