This is part two of my interview with Gerard Strong, exec chef of Central Bistro & Bar; part one of our chat ran yesterday.

Most memorable meal in Denver that you've ever had: I've had most of my top meals at Cafe Brazil. The flavors of each dish are so complex, and also very fresh and simple. The mango soup is some of the best I've ever had; everyone from the waitstaff to the chef, Tony Zarlenga, is incredibly friendly, attentive and relaxed, and the overall dining experience is wonderful.
