Video: Obama's LoDo tour includes stops at Wazee, Wynkoop and outside Squeaky Bean

President Barack Obama at the Wazee Supper Club last night.
If you're the President of the United States, where would you eat in Denver? After landing here late yesterday, President Barack Obama headed to the Wazee Supper Club for dinner with five citizens who'd sent letters requesting the pleasure of his company, then strolled around LoDo before heading to the Wynkoop Brewing Company, where he met John Hickenlooper for a game of pool. And it sounds like the Commander in Chief more than held his own against Colorado's Governor.

What's the scoop on the skimpy sampling at Nuggs?

Categories: The Dish

For months I passed by the future home of Nuggs Ice Cream, watching the construction project and waiting for the hot summer day when the place would finally open and my family and I could mosey on over for dessert. That day came recently when we walked to Marczyk's II, drawn as much by Friday burger night as the promise of neighborhood camaraderie. We found both there, with folks on picnic blankets and at tables laughing and making new friends over fat, juicy burgers. But that camaraderie came to an abrupt end when we walked across the street to finish our meal at Nuggs.

No dual citizenship required to order the chimi dog at Steve's Snappin' Dogs

We're going to need a bigger boat.
Steve's Snappin' Dogs slings hot dogs and deep-fried things, like panko-breaded onion rings and skin-on fries. The kitchen also cooks up chili con carne and green chile from scratch to top its various creations. So it makes perfect sense that hot dogs would end up in the deep fryer at some point, attracted to the hot vats like drunks to a hot tub. Not content with that perennial crowd-pleaser, the corndog, or even the Garden State favorites known as rippers -- both of which have photo-bombed the colorful menu -- Steve's combines the ingredients of two of the world's great culinary regions, Mexico and New Jersey, into one intimidating torpedo of excess known as the chimi dog.

Father Knows Food airs at 4 p.m. Tuesday on Colorado Public Television.
Documenting kitchen time may not seem like a top priority when you're wrangling a three-year-old and a two-year-old and have a third child on the way, but at the home of Peter and Jenna Reynolds, it's become just another part of the chaos of being new parents. The two started a YouTube cooking show last year that showcases Peter's talents as both dad and chef, and over the past year they developed it into a thirty-minute TV series that's running on Colorado Public Television this summer.

Chipotle rates a slot on Gustavo Arellano's ten most important burritos in history

Categories: The Dish

Gustavo Arellano, author of Ask a Mexican and a big fan of Den-Mex cuisine, has burritos on the brain these days, "and not just because of the whole pendejada involving Chipotle putting short stories by authors on its cups and bags...none of whom are Latinos," he says. "While America loves to gorge on the cylindrical gods, they seem to not care about its past, its history, its pioneers."

So he set out to rectify that with a list of the ten most important burritos in history.
