Denver Restaurant Week Won't Be Two Weeks in 2015

Categories: Culinary Events

Visit Denver
Denver Restaurant Week started more than ten years ago to showcase the metro area's dining scene in February -- the time of year when restaurant traffic is generally at its slowest. A half-dozen years ago, to boost business at the beginning of the Great Recession, a second week was added. But in response to complaints from both employees and eaters that two weeks straight was definitely too much of a good thing, this year the event was split into two separate weeks -- one in February and the other in August, to give harried staffs a break from fourteen straight days of deal-seeking Denverites. Now Visit Denver, the group that organizes Denver Restaurant Week, is moving back to a February-only format, citing logistical difficulties with scheduling during the peak summer restaurant season. Additionally, the 2015 version will be a ten-day affair as part of what Visit Denver calls a compromise between restaurant owners, restaurant employees, diners, and sponsors.

Chef Jon Emanuel is just back from a sabbatical on his family's farm in Missouri, refreshed and ready for the challenges of his job as executive chef of Project Angel Heart, the organization that delivers meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses. In addition to planning menus, cooking specialized dishes for those with specific dietary needs and serving more than 900 clients every week, the organization also maintains an on-site garden and accepts produce donations from home gardeners, all of which needs to be coordinated. Because of this, the chef has decided to end his side project, the Denver Adventurous Eaters Club. As a final farewell for the club, chef-owner Mary Nguyen of P17 in Uptown will be hosting a dinner at 6 p.m. Sunday, October 19, that will showcase offal, insects and other unusual proteins that, while strange in the U.S., are often called nothing more than "food" in other parts of the world.
