News, brews, reviews: A second helping of this week's Cafe Society

Mark Manger
Taita chef/owner Pepe Aparicio is ready for the holiday weekend.
This week Gretchen Kurtz reviewed Taita Peruvian Cuisine & Bar, Mark Antonat's journey up Federal stopped at J's Noodle Star Thai, and Lori Midson traveled to Boulder to interview Nate Bychinski, executive chef of Mateo.

And there was lots of other action on the Denver dining scene, including several openings -- and a couple of surprise closings.
