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

ChoLon Modern Asian Bistro is one of the more than 300 restaurants participating in Denver Restaurant Week. We're collecting diners' accounts of their DRW meals on this post; the best and/or worst stories will win EatDenver decks.

In the meantime, ChoLon chef/owner Lon Symensma is dishing up stories of his own in the current Chef and Tell interview, which inspired this comment from Bsquared:

Chefs like Chef Symensma are EXACTLY what Denver needs, and this is what puts Denver on the culinary map. An amazing pedigree at such a young age, I can't wait to see the full impact of his presence in the Denver food scene.

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.
