What are you serving at Dish? The Swiss sausage, which is a typical European street food found in Austria and Switzerland. It's a free-range veal-and-pork sausage served on a fresh French banquet, topped with chopped onions, parsley, spicy mustard, clover sprouts, and then dusted with a delicious curry-based blend of twelve spices. It's our signature sandwich. Alex Gschwends is the co-owner of the restaurant, and his grandfather, Leo Gschwend, came to Colorado from Switzerland in 1950 and started a successful catering company. Out of all the amazing dishes he prepared, the Swiss was his favorite.
Before there was molecular gastronomy, before Rachael Ray and Bobby Flay hijacked the Food Network, and before Anthony Bourdain penned Kitchen Confidential, there was Dish (formerly Menu Affair), Westword's annual culinary bash that extols the city's best bites, wine sips, suds and sounds. This year's Dish, slated for Friday, September 9, at Ninth Avenue Historic Park (that's a new venue), features thirty restaurants and food trucks all invited to participate by Cafe Society scribes, along with such liquid assets as beer and wine, along with a celebration of the Art of the Cocktail, and live music from Air Dubai, Rachel Platten and Robert Eldridge.
