Yellow Scene Reviews: Zoe Ma Ma

My latest review is up on the Yellow Scene website, or you can pick up a free copy at hundreds of locations throughout Boulder County, including the newspaper racks on the Pearl Street Mall. Too many restaurants to count pepper their menus with “like mama used to make,” a phrase no doubt meant to...

Uprooted Under the Moon

Tim and Melissa at Terroir are two of the friendliest people in the BoCo foodie world, and happily, own one of the finest restaurants in that world, as well: Terroir is a bastion of excellent dining and fine wines at the south end of Main Street in Longmont’s Old Town, and elevates the neighborhood...

Larkburger Arvada

  Well, we couldn’t help it.  My husband and I trekked over to the new Larkburger at 88th and Wadsworth in Arvada—mere blocks from our house!—to indulge in one of the best burgers around. Seriously, if you haven’t gone?  Go now.  You will thank me.  

Modern Middle Eastern at Pickled Lemon

You’re in Israel, wandering down a dusty street in Tel Aviv when you decide you might be hungry.  Glancing around, you realize you’re just steps from your favorite falafel shop.  Inside, the smell of spices, vinegar and yeasty bread hit your nose as you wander up to order.  You order a pita stuffed to...

Review: Louisville Rex

The restaurant that took over the Alley Cat space on Main Street in Louisville “topped” the old restaurant by adding East County’s first rooftop patio, complete with upstairs bar and misters to keep diners cool.  The patio is tons of fun and I could see it being a very popular happy hour spot, especially...

Review: The Cheeky Monk

My review of The Cheeky Monk in Westminster is up at Yellow Scene Magazine. The Cheeky Monk Belgian Beer Café is exactly what it says on the tin: homage to Belgian beers with a café on the side.

Tasty Technique at Pizzeria da Lupo

Last night the eating partner and photographer (aka: my husband) and I got to partake of some very tasty pizza at Executive Chef Jim Cohen’s (of Louisville’s The Empire) new pizza place in Boulder, Pizzeria da Lupo. Better still, I got to make it myself (under Jim’s watchful eye). We also made mozzarella and...

Pizzeria Locale

When my editor asked if I wanted to have lunch with her at Pizzeria Locale, in Boulder right next to their big sister restaurant Frasca, my answer was “Yes,” and then, “When and why?” The why was simply because we could, which was as good a reason as I needed.  We showed up at...

Authentic Albuquerque Fare at Jack N Grill

Being a New Mexico native, my husband is always skeptical when a restaurant outside the state’s square boarders claims to be “New Mexican cuisine,” so it was with a little trepidation that we visited the newest location of Jack-n-Grill in Westminster. We were, however, pleasantly surprised.  The menu states that the family is from...

Comfortable Coffee at Forza

Forza Coffee Company‘s only Colorado location (in fact, their only location outside of Washington) offers a good brew in a comfortable, Italian-esque setting near 104th and Federal in Westminster. They offer a quality brew, locally made baked treats, and free wi-fi.  Not to mention a cozy fireplace to take the chill off your bones....
