First Look: BSide Brings Fried Chicken and Community to City Park

Categories: First Look

The BSide opened Wednesday in City Park.
Way back when record companies issued 45 rpm records in advance of a full album release, those little black discs had two sides; the A-side was the radio-friendly song that the producer hoped would become a hit. Songs on the B-side, however, weren't always considered a band's best work. But those B-sides featured songs that revealed a band making music because that's what they loved to do, and not necessarily for those songs to become hits. That's the tune that reverberates through the City Park neighborhood's newest restaurant, BSide, opened by Star Bar owner Justin Lloyd. Lloyd says that philosophy touches everything you'll experience when you walk in the front door -- the cocktails, the beer, the food, the decor and the service.

ViewHouse
Tonight the brand-new Centennial/DTC ViewHouse will kick off a weekend of grand opening events to usher in a new era of drinking, dining and partying. Most of this ViewHouse in Centennial is as modern and flashy as its older Ballpark sibling, but a touch of the former occupant of the property -- the cheesy Trail Dust Steakhouse, which closed in 2009 -- still remains: The street side of the two-story glass and flagstone edifice retains its barn shape and old-timey appearance.

Provisions seems to be one of the latest restaurant catch words, both nationally and locally. Portland has Olympic Provisions, San Francisco is home to State Bird Provisions and Houston has the unadorned Provisions. Here in town, chef Alex Seidel is about to open Mercantile Dining & Provision at Union Station, while the nearby Provisions Chophaus opened and closed in less than two weeks. And on Labor Day, Chris Topham and Jason Ladd, two restaurant and bar veterans from Philadelphia, will open Asbury Provisions in the University of Denver neighborhood, in the location recently vacated by the Renegade Publik House . This house of provisions also promises a big beer list, craft cocktails and a focus on "imbibing culture," as the two put it.

Memories, Family and Garlic: The Saucy Noodle Looks Back at Fifty Years

Saucy Noodle Facebook page

At the Saucy Noodle, the tablecloths are still checkered, the spaghetti and meatballs are still drenched in garlic-studded red sauce, and the same slogan is still emblazoned on the awning: "If you don't like garlic, go home." It was Sam Badis' motto when he opened the restaurant in Bonnie Brae back in 1964, and it continues under his granddaughter Erin Markham's ownership. "Our pasta, our pizza, things that were there in 1964 are still there, still true to the same recipes," Markham says. "So much has changed, yet there is so much that has stayed the same." The Noodle will be hosting a 50th anniversary celebration tomorrow, starting at 4:30 p.m.
