in the Hotel Teatro isworth every penny

We also took a walk on the artsy side with afirst look
atthe Molecule Effect
, a new coffee and wine bar on Santa Fe Drive, andheld out hope
that some of the northeastern Chinese cuisine we loved at the recentlyclosed East Asia Garden would translate to its new incarnation asHasu Asian Bistro & Sushi
in Cherry Creek North. In other news:
