When TAG owners Troy Guard and Leigh Sullivan-Guard decided to extend their reach in Larimer Square -- to an underground spot on a newly remodeled walkway -- they didn't have much to work with: The tiny space had no hood, no gas range and, really, no kitchen. So they focused on a board of dishes that either feature raw ingredients or can be cooked creatively, using such tools as a butane torch.

The result? TAG | RAW BAR.

The new eatery, which Sullivan-Guard says they wanted to feel like TAG's private annex, started serving in March, and I've been a regular since that first week. During that time, I've watched the menu evolve as Guard and his crew innovate, testing the limits of their makeshift kitchen and serving up innovative chef's tastings that change on a whim.

How is TAG | RAW BAR handling its constraints? Find out tomorrow, when my review is posted here.
