Photos: Coohills, the subject of this week's review

A few years after Diane and Tom moved from Atlanta to Denver so that Tom could take a corporate job, they decided it was time to open a restaurant. But instead of building a fine dining spot, like the ones where Tom had worked in Georgia, they decided to create an upscale neighborhood spot, enticing enough for people to use for special occasion meals while also giving more casual eaters a reason to come by.

And because the neighborhood they chose is LoDo, the concept worked. I review Coohills in this week's Westword;here, to go with that story, is a side of photos highlighting some of my favorite dishes.

For another look at Coohills, check out our slideshow.

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.
