Tarbell's and The Oven Pizza e Vino find a home in the new Streets at SouthGlenn
My childhood memories of Southglenn are laced with meals from cheap chain restaurants, eaten in a mall that fell into disrepair after Park Meadows moved in down the street, attracting bigger crowds and better shops.

Finally, the old Southglenn mall was razed -- and a new Southglenn rose from the ashes. The Streets at SouthGlenn, which will celebrate its first anniversary next week, is a far cry from the stamping grounds of my youth: This glitzy development is home to luxury residences, boutique shops and restaurants of an upscale urban variety.
Two of those restaurants are owned by Mark Tarbell, a former Iron Chef America winner who opened The Oven Pizza e Vino five years ago in Belmar. He opened a second Oven at SouthGlenn, and then Tarbell's (originally known as Home), which serves up haute American cuisine.
