Plant-based corned beef sandwich available at Denver-area Quiznos

Quiznos started testing a new corned beef sandwich at its Denver-area stores on Friday, although it should be noted that the sandwich doesn’t contain any actual beef. The new sandwich is instead made with a corned beef substitute made from beets, chickpeas, tomatoes, and other plant ingredients produced by a business called Mrs. Goldfarb’s Unreal Deli. The sandwich also contains Swiss cheese, pickles, sauerkraut, and honey French dressing and can be served on any Quiznos bread. Quiznos has not indicated how long the sandwiches will be available at Denver stores.

Rebel chef opening eclectic new snack bar on East Colfax

One of the chefs behind Rebel, the Denver restaurant that made a name for itself by serving up whole hog heads, pierogies, and other eclectic offerings during a three-year run in RiNo, is jumping back into the Denver dining scene.

Westword first reported Thursday that Bo Porytko is taking over the kitchen at Middleman, a cocktail bar located at 3401 East Colfax next to lauded Colfax Chinese spot Q House. There, Porytko will serve a new roster of intriguing offerings that will include jerky, flavored popcorn, and assorted pickles, under the name Misfit Snackbar. That “misfit” name doubles as a fitting description for Porytko’s planned menu, which will include carrot enchiladas and kiebalsa corndogs, according to Westword. The snack bar will open on Wednesday, December 4. [Westword]

Highland pizza spot serves impeachment-themed drinks

As Wednesday’s first public hearings regarding the impeachment charges against President Trump got underway on Tuesday, Tony P’s Pizza in Highland offered two different impeachment-themed drinks to mark the occasion. The Denver Post reported that Tony P’s was offering both an Impeachmint Julep and an Impeachmint Tea. The julep is a traditional mint julep made with whiskey while the Impeachmint Tea is a tea with peach puree and mint. In a response to a message announcing the availability of the new drinks, Facebook user Kel Bel quipped that what she is really thirsty for is a “subpoena colada.” [The Denver Post]
