Los Chingones Shows Cojones By Edan Goode

Troy Guard is one gutsy guy. The chef/restaurateur is opening one restaurant after another in an economy just regaining a foothold. Last November, he opened Los Chingones and Sugarmill (his collaboration with Pasty Chef Noah French). The pair of restaurants are next door neighbors at 24th and Larimer. Next month, Guard will open Guard and…

2013 Reviews in Review

You see them everywhere – those year-end wrap ups. Top news events, top celebrity baby bump sitings, top ridiculous quotes from politicians – you name it, somebody’s going to compile it to help wrap up the year with a tidy, numbered bow. Love ’em or hate ’em, we’re joining the bandwagon again this year. With…

Street Kitchen Asian Bistro by Edan Goode

Both were part of the Chef Richard Sandoval empire. However, despite the well-to-do neighborhood of Riverfront, the nice concept didn’t develop quite like Sandoval had hoped. What does…

A Tribute to Tacos By Edan Goode

October 4th is a momentous day. It’s National Taco Day!   We love tacos as much as the next guy, if the next guy really, really loves tacos, that is. Tacos are terribly clever – a hard or soft circle that you fold up and fill with whatever your little heart can imagine. The only…

Zengo Gets Testy By Edan Goode

One of our favorite restaurants, Zengo, is launching a new Test Kitchen menu on Oct. 1 titled “Peru to Malaysia,” which will highlight the rich flavors of, you guessed it, Peruvian and Malaysian cuisine. Not content to rest on their culinary laurels, every few months, together with his team of chefs at Zengo, Chef Richard Sandoval researches…
