Bucky needs a restaurant recommendation, and who better?
No word from guest poster Owl yesterday, so no Funtastic Thursday. To make matters worse, guest poster Bucky had already scheduled a vacation day. He was having food writer's block (not writer's block) so I suggested topics such as how he fixed the trout he had spent the weekend catching.
I got a three word e-mail back from him saying, "Catch and release."
Now doesn't that seem like a colossal waste of time? But I digress. ...
Then I suggested that he take his lovely wife out to dinner at Denver's fanciest restaurant and write about it, but he didn't deign to answer that one. Especially as I said upfront the Sun wouldn't pay.
So I thought this morning we could help Bucky out. I have here the 2009 edition of Zagat America's Top Restaurants. Whoa. Denver has some mighty fine-sounding places.
Let's take a closer look at them.
Somehow I don't think Bucky is going to tolerate Sushi Den. The servers can be "snooty." And it's kind of hard to imagine the Bucky character on our blog eating sushi.
Mmmm. Frasca is Italian and Colorado's "Most Popular," but this doesn't sound like Bucky either: "Words cannot adequately express how divine" it is.
Fruition has "plates that look like a Cezanne still life." Nope. Not Bucky-food either.
Wait. I think I've got it. Mizuna is New American, including a "to die for" lobster mac-n-cheese. It's "worth every penny" in order to "sweep a first date or long-time girlfriend off her feet."
Let us know how Mrs. Bucky likes it, Bucky.
