Your favorite wine bar might just become a fried chicken takeout spot to survive the coronavirus shutdown.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
“The last thing I want to do is put anybody at risk,” said Troy Bowen, co-owner of Noble Riot (now called Noble Fry-It, a fried chicken takeout spot with to-go wine). “The second-to-last thing I want to do is to let the spirit of this place die.”⁠⠀

Sunday Vinyl is a record-spinning wine bar and dinner spot in Denver, and last week it was nominated for a national James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Here's a slice of the experience: Over the course of a meal, the restaurant’s soundtrack might progress by region and genre, sort of like a wine list. Sunday Vinyl is working with Denver record club Vinyl Me, Please to curate its playlist.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
“My goal is for guests to unplug from the digital world and plug back into the analog world,” said Justin Williams, the restaurant’s director of operations.⁠⠀

People are lining up at Third Culture Bakery (@thirdculturebakery) for tastes of chewy, mochi-filled muffins (gluten-free, $3.95) and doughnuts (also gluten-free, $3-$3.25) and various preparations of matcha tea — like in lychee “sparklers” or roasted lattes (drinks from $2.50-$7).⁠⠀
⁠⠀
“It’s really cool that they have ingredients from different parts of Asia,” said customer Paul Sahertian. “Not just Japan, Korea, China, but the Southeast islands, too.”⁠⠀

On a recent return to Fort Collins, our food writer Josie Sexton was reminded what she loves about the place: One, that it feels like home, always. Two, that it also always feels on the verge of change.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
"Fort Collins’ dining scene is often overlooked next to those of Boulder and Denver," she writes. "The first time I pulled off the freeway onto Mulberry Street, I asked, 'Well, where is it?' Now, heading back for a day trip or weekend, I appreciate knowing where to look.⁠"⁠⠀
⁠⠀
"So this is a personal guide to dining in Fort Collins today. For ease, most spots are walkable from Old Town, with a few exceptions. They’re organized by meal and time of day. When you arrive, I hope there’s still some late-afternoon sunlight streaming over the foothills and a free counter seat where you can fit right in.⁠"⁠⠀

Our food writer @josie_sexton describes her experience as she tried all the Denver Christmas pop-up bars as: ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
"By the time I arrive, we have 40 minutes left to sip on our Santa mug cocktails until the next reservation takes the table. And thus begins night three of a four-evening bender filled with sugary drinks, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” and a ton of tinsel. The Christmas bar, in all its forms, is definitely a dream come true, but it is also very close to a nightmare." ⁠⠀
⁠⠀

The tree has to be decorated. Lights have to be strung outside. Cards need to be addressed (or emailed). Invitations need to be sent out. Gifts have to be bought, wrapped and mailed. Menus have to be planned.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So. Much. To. Do.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We know. Here are some easy (but delicious) recipes for your Christmas baking that don't require decorating. These and more recipes at the link in our bio. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
🍪: Simple Sugar Cookies. It’s the texture that separates these from all other sugar cookies. They’re not as dense as traditional sugar cookies, and not overly sweet.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
🍿: Caramel Corn. OK, so these aren’t cookies, but this caramel corn is so fluffy and addictive we had to include the recipe.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
🍫: Magic Cookie Bars. These are shockingly simple. The original recipe is from Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk. We made a slight adjustment. ⁠⠀

“I want to take the stuffiness of the holidays and making people feel like they have to celebrate something very specific and just open it up,” said Honduran chef Edwin Sandoval.⁠⠀

Sandoval will start a new local celebration with a Latin American-inspired family meal that's open to all this Thanksgiving.⁠⠀

The Wolf’s Tailor, a new restaurant that is both Italian and Japanese, has been creating quite the buzz. It was named one of Bon Appétit's top 10 new restaurants in America and, this past winter, it got two semifinalists nods from the James Beard Awards. Our restaurant critic @allysonready breaks down the hits, misses and growing pains of this new restaurant. Check it out at the link in our bio. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
🍽️: Pork ribs with chili, honey, scallions and crispy shallots (right), gnocco with tomato, herb and pecorino (top middle), avocado house tara (upper left), beef skewer with mustard seed, scallion and squash skewer (lower left) and the chawanmushi with egg, corn and miso (bottom middle) at The Wolf's Tailor.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
🍷: Bartender Maya Wilson makes drinks for patrons as others dine at The Wolf's Tailor.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
🍮: Red miso panna cotta – banana brûlée, lime – which Allyson described as, "That panna cotta may be the best thing I’ve eaten this year. The texture was a Jell-O-like cream cheese, which is as precise a description I can muster in my state of intense veneration." ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
👨‍🍳: Chef/owner Kelly Whitaker at The Wolf's Tailor on Thursday. He was the semifinalist for James Beard's Best Chef Southwest. The restaurant's other nomination went to Jeb Breakell for Outstanding Pastry Chef.⁠⠀

Not your ordinary food truck in Boulder County 🍛

The Ginger Pig is a pan-Asian food truck semi-permanently parked at a Boulder County farm, and the quality and value of its food exceed not just expectations for meals served from wheels, but also expectations for regular brick-and-mortar restaurants.
