Proving that Denverites can't get enough of their brunch, Four Friends Kitchen, a new full-service breakfast, lunch and brunch joint, will hold its groundbreaking ceremony tomorrow at 2 p.m. in Stapleton's East 29th Avenue Town Center. The new restaurant-to-be is the dream of four friends and neighbors, Kurt and Sarah Pletcher and Tim and Genefer Thornton, and will provide a Southern-inspired menu to bring some comfort food into the morning routines of Stapleton's early (and not so early) risers.

Georgia Boys BBQ plans a crowd-funding patio expansion in Frederick

Georgia Boys owners Matt Alexander and Nick Reckinger at their Shack -- now you can help them expand the Smokehouse.
Georgia Boys BBQ has been regularly filling the picnic tables at the Longmont house it turned into a barbecue shack back in 2011, and opened a second location in February, the much larger Georgia Boys Smokehouse and Sports Bar in Frederick, where carnivores are also packing the place. As much as diners like to complain about the state of barbecue in Colorado, it seems they can't get enough of it. And now Georgia Boys is looking to the community to help expand the Frederick spot with a back patio -- because the only thing better than a good rack of ribs is enjoying them in the Colorado sunshine.

Construction at Santiago's foils breakfast burrito plans

Mark Antonation
Denverites love their breakfast burritos, so it's always a concern when supply-side issues threaten the morning ritual of a steaming torpedo of green chile and eggs wolfed down while fighting rush-hour traffic or toted by the dozen to the office to share with co-workers. That's why construction at the Santiago's at 2505 Federal Boulevard may have commuters scrambling for alternatives.

Subway Tavern transformation into TAG Burger Bar reveals "the original connolle"

Work is progressing on the former Longo's Subway Tavern, a choice piece of corner real estate on the edge of LoHi/Sunnyside that Larimer Associates purchased in 2012 and is turning into a second location for Troy Guard's TAG Burger Bar. The Longo family, which ran the Subway for more than fifty years, had always claimed that they were the first to serve pizza in Denver -- and as the construction crew removed additions to the century-old building, another specialty has been revealed: "the original connolle."
