Busy few weeks. But hey, you gotta eat. Recent visits: Brasserie Ten Ten, Boulder CO Hopping, fun place. The menu is printed to look just like a parisian bistro, and all comparisons to the real thing can stop right there. In spirit, it is Parisian, and the food here is certainly decent, even good, but there is a kind of soullessness here that I found a bit depressing. The meals themselves were tasty but frankly unexciting. Worth a visit, and maybe you'll have better luck than I - I'd try this again, as it has gotten enthusiastic reviews from my friends; perhaps I caught it on an off night. Twelve, Denver CO Had dinner with a good friend from the wine business: the meals here are uniformly delicious, the kitchen is consistently excellent to a fault and the staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. The willingness of Chef Osaka to wipe the slate clean every month (hence the name; twelve menus per year) is courageous and risks putting off less adventurous diners; but I have never missed a departed menu item more than I've enjoyed new ones. If you are wanting the exact same dish every time you go out, this place is emphatically not for you. The only complaints I have here are minor: the floor is sometimes understaffed (adding one person would probably take care of this; service can be less than smooth if things get busy), and that the wine is not stored properly - the reds always come out warm. Still, this is probably my favorite place in all of Denver right now. The meals are vibrant, fresh, beautifully prepared and full of unexpected surprises, and the service is so nice it's hard to stop smiling while I am in here. Owner/Chef Jeff Osaka can do no wrong! Plus, I can walk up here from my apartment. How great is that?
