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

TAG, you're it.

The fallout from TAG continues to radiate across the restaurant scene, with the news yesterday that James Lee and Michael Pacovsky are going to Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar, Robert Thompson's spot slated to open in the former home of Baur's at 1512 Curtis Street late next month.

Jensen Cummings, TAG's former chef de cuisine, is the new executive chef at Row 14. And Brian Melton and his sidekick, Ali Terrill, have both landed at ChoLon Modern Asian Bistro.

That last piece of news inspired this from Madison Green:

Who gives a f*ck?! This isn't top chef of the mixology world! Give it a rest already

Which prompted this from IronyDiscovered:

If you don't give a "f*ck" than quit reading Westword Blog. Clown!

And OneGordo can't wait to try Melton's new drinks:

Nice guys I can't wait to see what you come up with, I know you probably have some great cocktails already ready to go. Good luck I'll have to stop bye and check it out, smart move by Lon, its funny to see where everyone ends up.

And it's keeping Cafe Society very, very busy.

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.
