Beatrice and Woodsley – Decor to die for

The dining space

 

The bar area with chain saw shelving supports!

I wanted to love this place, I really did.  I wish I could tell you that the food was so spectacular that even a year later, I could expound on the details of each course.  I wish I could rave about the way the flavors melded in just the right way to turn just an entrée into an experience, but I can’t do that.  Outside of the incredible interesting décor, I have nothing much to excitedly describe outside of the hilariously difficult time I had using . . . → Read More: Beatrice and Woodsley – Decor to die for

Wild Eggs

Affection and desire can come in many forms, but the way I feel about the new Wild Eggs restaurant in Wash Park can only be described as obsessive love.  I LOVE the variety of dishes they have to offer.  I LOVE the inventive take on old, traditional recipes.  I LOVE the half priced Bloody Maries and Mimosas served on weekdays.  I just downright LOVE this place.  So much so, in fact, that I went there for breakfast twice in one weekend.

On Saturday morning my husband and I ventured our way to the intersection of Logan and Alameda in the . . . → Read More: Wild Eggs

Lime XS

If you are looking for a restaurant that serves your food with a side of hair, a jacked up price on your drinks and a management staff that blatantly says “if you don’t like it, go somewhere else”, then this is the place for you. Because that is exactly the experience I recently had at Lime XS off of 6th Ave in Denver.

My husband and I have been dining at this neighborhood Mexican restaurant since we moved to Denver two years ago. Until recently, it had always had an experienced and professional, yet quirky staff (think biker gang/tattoo shop). . . . → Read More: Lime XS

Larkburger

 I have to admit that I was a bit reluctant to try the new Larkburger that just opened on Alameda in Wash Park.  I have a favorite burger joint that I like to patron and I really wasn’t looking to pay for anything less than what I was used to.  But such is the nature of the beast for a restaurant blogger.  If all I did was eat at the same places and write about them over and over again, no one would have even an ounce of interest in reading what I have to say.

La Brisa

I had great hopes for this small neighborhood Mexican joint.  After all, its doors remain open despite its close proximity to the long time Denver favorite The Blue Bonnet and the new Mexican hotshot, El Diablo.  Upon my arrival to the restaurant I noted that despite being 7:30 pm, about half the tables in the restaurant were empty.  This is never a good sign in my book.  A good restaurant should be nearly full if not have a short wait at this typical dining hour.  Never the less, we ventured in and took an empty booth with the hopes that . . . → Read More: La Brisa

El Diablo

 

 

Having heard the same buzz as many Denver folks about the ‘new tequila bar’ on Broadway, my husband and I decided to give this local eatery a go.  We went on a Friday night, without reservations, just passed high dinner hour.  The host informed us that there would be a 30 minute wait, which seemed reasonable as the place was packed, and they would come find us at the bar when a table opened up.

Table 6

Table 6's street view

Table 6 is a cozy American bistro featuring ‘daily’ menus that abide by their rule of using fresh and in season ingredients.  Its contemporary-country décor offers only a little insight into the origins of the often complex menu.  As a self described foodie, I was surprised and embarrassed that I was unfamiliar with a number of the items on the menu.  The descriptions were so specific that it might take a professional chef or baker to know what 72% Valrhona is.  (P.S. For those who were as clueless and I was, it’s a specific . . . → Read More: Table 6
