Downtown spot, Crave, was reviewed by William Porter of the Denver Post this week. The critic's sweet tooth indulged in a number of Crave's "busy" and "steeply priced" desserts, including the berry donut trio and lime margarita cake, both of which Porter enjoyed. The restaurant is known for its desserts, but Porter didn't hesitate to dive into the savory portion of the menu. Satisfaction was expressed over the chicken carbonara, greek Goddess fettucini and the "flavor-packed" lamb sliders. Porter gave his approval for the kitchen's "sure hand" in both dinner and dessert dishes.
Lowry's taco and tequila joint, North County, was reviewed by Gretchen Kurtz of Westword this week. Despite her attempt to beat the inevitable crowds, Kurtz acknowledged the owners success in creating such a popular location with a "lively ambiance." While the critic didn't grow fond of the taco options, she took a liking to the pork-chile covered fries, house-made tortillas and chips, and the chicken tinga that she'd be "happy to eat plain." Overall Kurtz made it clear that North County is worth venturing out to for a bite and drink.
