Well we have really enjoyed writing this blog, but for now even though we are still going out and trying new restaurants we just havent felt like reviewing them.
So we are officially going on hiatus for how long it is hard to say. We are still happy to answer questions about anything, but at least for the time being there wont be any new posts on here.
Thank you to all of those who have have read the blog
Even though we've taken a break from the blog, it doesn't mean we've stopped sampling some delicious food. On Wednesday, June 15th we attended a James Beard Foundation event at Cholon Bistro. Our meal was cooked by Chef Lon Symensma and Chef Angelo Sosa. You might recognize Chef Angelo from his two seasons on Top Chef and Top Chef: All Stars.
The evening was great, the food wonderful and as a bonus, I got kissed by the Top Chef!
Jonathan and I have decided to take a break from the blog for a bit. It's not that we're not going out and finding good food (because we are - can you say Sweet Corn Risotto from Terroir).
We will be attending the Celebrity Chef Tour at Cholon Bistro on June 15th. Two great chefs - Lon Symensma and from Top Chef Angelo Sosa will be preparing a five course meal benefiting the James Beard Foundation (http://www.celebritycheftour.com/about.html). I'm sure we'll post something after that night.
So, keep coming back and checking while we take a break, cause you just never know what will be here.
Nothing new this week, honestly because I have been in a procrastinating mood and haven’t written anything up for our last 2 meals but I will say both Salt and Row 14 Bistro were just hands down good. I will try to talk more about those later. Three things I wanted to let you know about this week.
One of our favorite restaurants is having a incredible special ongoing right now 6 course tasting menu for $25.00…. yes TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS . Dish is a long way off up in Edwards and if you dont go soon I would advise to call to see if the special is ongoing but you should go if you possibly can Jenna is one of the best chefs Colorado has to offer and at that price you should not hesitate, just pile in the car and go. If you do, say hi to Jenna for us.
Second thing is Who: The Food Truck Warriors, 11 gourmet food truck, Left Hand Brewery and seriously good DJ's
When: April 30th, 2pm-9pm
Where: Corner of 9th Ave and Bannock, very close to down town
Denver has a great food truck scene and this is a fantastic chance to give a try to some of the best so if your looking for something to do this weekend stop on by and give them a try!.
Last thing for you coffee lovers out there
Just in time for warmer weather, Caribou Coffee is offering guests a newly expanded line of beverages with 40 percent fewer calories—and 100 percent of the taste.
Caribou Coffee stores in Denver are expanding their menus with new Northern Lite beverages, including mochas, lattes, tea lattes and blended beverages—all with at least 40 percent fewer calories and fat than the original drinks.
The new beverage lineup includes Caribou’s first ever lite mocha, made with real, premium milk, dark or white chocolate and non-fat whip. Caribou is so confident guests will love the taste of their new Northern Lites that they’ve implemented the “love it lite or we’ll remake it” guarantee.
And if that wasn’t news enough, Caribou’s Happy Monday promotion will return to celebrate the launch of Northern Lites. Every Monday now through May 30th, guests can enjoy a Daybreaker breakfast sandwich for only $2, as well as any medium Northern Lite beverage for just $3.
All right that’s all I have for now take care everyone. If you have any questions leave them here or send us an email at jonathan or barb @milehigheater.com
Driscoll invited us to try their “Seasons Finest” berries, which they say are much juicer and larger than their normal ones (which as we all know are yummy) so of course we jumped on it. I was a bit skeptical that there would be much of any difference that you would see or more important taste going in but wow go take a look at your local store the seasons finest ( which are only available for another week or two )they are very noticeably larger and just very very yummy.
**** I am very sorry I incorectly said you would get a 50 percent discount with the code at the end it is a 40 percent discount *(still a great deal I think)
No new restaurant this week, but next week we will talk about our trip to the Happy Sumo. This week I want to mention a new service we got to try out: Door to Door Organics (http://colorado.doortodoororganics.com). What they do is deliver fresh organic fruit and veggies to your door on a weekly basis.
I must admit for us organic/not organic is not a huge factor. What is a factor, is freshness and everything we received in the box was nice and fresh. Another thing is that you get a nice variety which can encourage you to try a new fruit or veggie you would not normally buy. Of course they do let you swap out a few items just in case something that is going to be delivered is on your own personal no way list.
They come in four different sizes depending on your family size. (For the two of us the bitty was just fine). The Bitty Perfect starter box for the single cook, roommates, or a couple. The Small A good size for a couple that cooks, and might have a small child. The Medium Works for a hearty vegetarian couple, or a family with a couple of veggie and fruit minded children. The Large Should satisfy the needs of most any family, and if not you can always order more.
And whets in them changes weekly. Below is an example of what they have going on this week.
Item: Quantity: Red Tomatoes 2 Red Bell Pepper 1 Red Kale bunch 1 Leaf Lettuce 1 Broccoli bunch 1 Kiwi Fruit 2 Red Bartlett Pears 2 Gala Apples 2 Navel Oranges 2
Now, price here is the meat and potatoes of the issue and you know whether it is worth it for you and your family. The prices range from $24.99 for the bitty up to $51.99 for the large and there are several options in between.
Really, it comes down to how important is it for you to get a nice variety of organic mixed fruit and vegetables (or just fruit or just veggies) delivered hassle free to your house? If you are just not sure if this is for you, or even if you know you like the idea the kind people at Door to Door Organics gave us a code to enter at the order screen (milehigheater) which will give you 40 percent off your first order.
Well, as always thanks for stopping by and if you give Door to Door Organics a try, let us know what you think.
