Expansion seems to be the name of the game for Denver restaurants. From barbecue joints to Italian eateries and swanky bistros, restaurants have been growing and new restaurants have been coming across the metro faster than we can say “table for two.” Now, LoHi favorite Postino is the latest to join in on the expansion craze with the announcement t...

When his high-profile Brooklyn restaurant closed, Rikki Giambruno knew the time was right to move back to his home state of Minnesota and open his own place. This summer, Hyacinth (hyacinthstpaul.com) — an ode to his personal history — will take over the space of the former specialty shop Golden Fig (790 Grand Av., St. Paul). Golden Fig (goldenfig....

On a recent night at Bar Dough, LoHi’s hip-hop-pumping Italian wine bar and pizza oven, a black and white version of Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman” was playing in the background. It’s a perfect choice of show, given that this restaurant’s chef and co-owner, Carrie Baird, has recently risen to badass star status. She made it to the final four on the rea...

Of course it has to do with all the wonderful food and my family heritage but also about independent filmmaker Mark Spano, writer, producer, and director of "Sicily: Land of Love and Strife." He will be in Kansas City this week for the U.S. premiere of his feature-length documentary at the Screenland Armour Theatre. T...

The first thing you'll likely notice about Anthony's Italian Eats (7641 Wydown Boulevard, Clayton; 314-721-3233) is just how small it is. On first glance, the former home of Manhattan Express looks every inch the counter-service deli it used to be, complete with a glass case of meats at the front. But once your eyes adjust to the size of the room,...

Sitting along the paned windows at Toscanini, gazing at skaters gliding on the ice as fire pits warm the scene, feels like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting.
