Here’s how our host, Paul Karolyi, describes this episode:

This week on Denverite Now…

1) Ashley got a chance to dine at Denver’s hottest new restaurant, Tavernetta, before a kitchen fire forced it to temporarily close. She gives us the skinny on the long-awaited follow-up from the team behind Boulder’s fine dining darling Frasca Food and Wine, and she shares a tasty recommendation.

Tavernetta makes its highly anticipated debut, bringing Italian regional cuisines to the platform at Union Station

2) Erica reports back from the City Council’s Monday night session, which stretched deep into Tuesday morning. The council voted to designate Packard’s Hill a historic district. Erica explains why it took seven hours and how it fits into our ongoing conversation about gentrification. Here’s her report from the marathon meeting:
