After service flubs detracted from the excellent food Laura Shunk discusses in herrecent review of Charcoal, she lamented about poor service in general around town. But there are also many restaurants that do things right, and she highlighted a quintet of them in "Five examples of great service in Denver."
Turns out, some of these restaurants -- like Second Home -- are known for assets beyond their service.
Second Home is one of my go-to faves--and I find it funny as hell that someone else noticed the massive cougar-hunt going on there. It's way worse in the summer when the patio is busy, and I must also admit to seeing more than a few cougars going "cub-hunting" there as well. Better than cable, really.
If you are a wealthy middle-aged lady or a broke twenty-something bloke, then Second Home is the place to go.
Is Second Home the place to go? If you want to meet a potential mate or just find some quick company, where do you go?
