This is part two of my interview with Rob Michaels, chef de cuisine at Madison Street. In part one of this interview, Michaels dishes on dumbing down menus, the pitfalls of parsley, and pork heaven.

Favorite Denver/Boulder restaurant(s) other than your own: I love the comfort food at Steuben's -- plus I only live two blocks away; the best mussels I've ever had are from Root Down; the duck rillettes at the Squeaky Bean rock; Euclid Hall is awesome for late-night food and, oh, man, the boudin noir; and everything at Lola blows my mind, plus their tequila selection makes me do bad things.
