Photos: Cafe|Bar, the focus of this week's review

This week's review took me to the area just north of West Washington Park, where Dale Huguley created Cafe|Bar in the former home of Pho Pasta. With the help of chef Eric Rivera, he married European cafe culture to sustainable sourcing and excellent design. The result is a versatile neighborhood restaurant that works as well for a lunch meeting as it does for a dinner date, a drink at the bar or a nightcap and dessert.

Here, to go with my Cafe|Bar review, are photos of a few of the dishes. For more of Cafe|Bar, check out our slide show.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Laura Shunk was Westword's restaurant critic from 2010 to 2012; she's also been food editor at the Village Voice and a dining columnist in Beijing. Her toughest assignment had her drinking ten martinis and eating ten Caesar salads over the course of 48 hours. She still drinks martinis, but remains lukewarm on Caesar salads.
