Second Helpings

Que Bueno! A Second Helping of Westword Food & Drink, December 5-9

The first full week of December brought an arctic blast and an eggnog roundup of ten Denver bars and restaurants embracing the holiday spirit. To break through the icy chill, the kitchen at Que Bueno Suerte is getting fired up for its grand opening on Sunday, December 11; we got a sneak peek of the place this week. Other notable openings around town include a second high-tech coffee bar for Corvus and a fast-casual Asian eatery called Wok Hei in University Hills, which will open softly tomorrow but should be in full swing by next week.
