A dish from Mayan Manjar Yucateco.
This week in Cafe Society, Gretchen Kurtz reviews Mayan Majar Yucateco, an underdog that's taken over the former Maria Empanada space and could be a real contender. As she approaches her hundredth Cafe review, she also considers how the restaurant scene in Denver has changed over the past two years. And for Chef and Tell, chef Jason Morse tells Mark Antonation about cooking for Colorado Proud, his love of local ingredients and more.

Also this week, Jonathan Shikes reports that Denver Pearl Brewing just learned it can't have the words "Pearl" or even "Denver" in its name, and will change it. We also reveal that Stoic & Genuine is run by superheroes -- or at least men named after them. And we continue to chronicle the flurry of restaurant openings in the area:
