Last night's Bombay Sapphire Spirit of Exploration dinner at Elway's Cherry Creek was definitely an exploration -- of some seriously fantastic world cuisine created by chef Tyler Wiard, with mind-boggling Bombay Sapphire cocktail pairings from bar manager Ky Belk. "I had no idea gin could taste this good," said one diner.
