It was a chef who recommended that I drag my butt to the suburbs -- and to this joint, in particular -- to get my Middle Eastern fix, and so I did, feasting on a well-dressed plate of meaty kabobs, baba ghanoush and spicy hummus.

With the flurry of new restaurant openings, it's all too easy to sweep some of the older ones -- like the restaurant where this photo was snapped -- under the rug, but this lively spot, which is celebrating ten years feeding the neighborhood in which it resides, continues to command my attention, turning out truly memorable dishes, including this rhapsodic pork chop sidekicked with spaetzle and Brussels sprouts.

Cafe Society dished up five Guess Where? contests last week, ranging from an Argentinean pizza topped with egg and hearts of palm from Buenos Aires Pizzeria to a sizzling platter of tandoori chicken from India's Castle to a bowl of crab dip with housemade potato chips from a restaurant that just trotted out a new happy hour menu.

Sure, you can get a Hawaiian pizza here, and a pizza with the ever-present prosciutto, too, but most of the pizzas at this charmer zigzag in a different direction, most notably a pizza studded with ham, palm hearts and egg, its surface paved with a Latin American salsa rosada.

Denver restaurants are rolling out new happy hour menus to coincide with the warmer weather, and late yesterday afternoon, while the sun was warming my neck, I enjoyed one of the new happy hour dishes -- crab dip and housemade potato chips -- at a joint whose two patios were overflowing with people doing the same.

Guess where I'm eating an In-N-Out clone?

A friend of mine -- a bona fide burger baron -- turned me on to this burger joint, which, he insisted, flipped a burger that was the closest meat-between-the-bun he'd ever eaten that mimicked a famed burger from In-N-Out. It wasn't quite quite an In-N-Out burger, but I agree that it comes very, very close, and you'll only need to travel about 65 miles to get your mouth on one.

Whenever I hear the sizzle of tandoori chicken and sniff the scent of exotic Indian spices wafting from the kitchen, I get a little giddy. And when I have the opportunity to pair that chicken with a Lion's Stout, one of my favorite beers, it's like Christmas.

I usually reserve my fried rice moments for when I have dinner with my kid, who's obsessed with the stuff. But he was still burrowing under the covers, one of the luxuries of spring break, when I had lunch at this Asian-inspired restaurant that turns out a deeply flavorful version that's typically vegetarian, but if you want it studded with ground pork -- and I did -- then the kitchen will happily fulfill your request.

Downtown was crazy-bustling last night, no doubt a precursor to today's home opener at Coors Field. And at this restaurant, where I popped in for a margarita and a vessel of queso fundido with chorizo, the staff was projecting that they'd serve a lot more of that queso today, along with enough margaritas to flood Mexico.
