True Food Kitchen, the new dining attraction in the Cherry Creek North neighborhood, has received two and a half stars in a review by the Denver Post restaurant critic William Porter. The two month old restaurant created by the Fox Restaurant Group in partnership with Dr. Andrew Weil, "delivers serious flavor without an ounce of hair-shirt puritanism," Porter said in his review. He enjoyed the the edamame dumplings, a suggestion from a bartender and gave high marks to the dish recalling that the "six dumplings swam in mushroom broth — a pool of umami heaven."
Some dishes, like the grilled shrimp fresh roll, complemented by green papaya and soba noodles, left a bit to be desired, but Porter certainly appreciated the non-alcoholic beverage program mentioning in particular the Green Arnie, a mix of Matcha green tea with honey lemonade and the Red Moon, a tart combination of ruby grapefruit, yuzu, agave and a spritz of soda.
