Perhaps you know Zengo Restaurant because of award-winning Chef Richard Sandoval. And perhaps you have visiting one of the locations around the country, in Santa Monica, New York, Washington DC and Denver, to taste the Latin-Asian menu. But, did you know that in addition to the regular Latin-Asian menu, Zengo, which means "give and take" in Japanese, also offers items from their test kitchen.
Every few months the chefs of Zengo come together in researching and developing seasonal menus that feature dishes from one Latin and one Asian country. The items are integrated onto the main menu, but you can locate them by spotting the "TK" next to the specialty items.
Now thru December, the Zengo is offering Peruvian and Malaysian dishes as part of the "Test Kitchen" menu. The dishes includes cocktails, appetizers, entrees and even a dessert.
While in Denver for work, a foodie friend recommended Euclid Hall Bar and Kitchen. It was a randomly snowy night in late April as I found my way to the restaurant located in an old building in the historic Larimer Square.
Euclid Hall is an American tavern featuring innovative international pub food. The third restaurant from Jennifer Jasinski and Beth Gruitch, who also own Rioja and Bistro Vendôme in Denver, Euclid Hall is located in a building that was originally a house built in 1883 and is located right around the corner from Rioja.
