I spoke to Kimball Bayles, who says he got out of the Metropolitain around March or April. I then spoke to the new owners, Raul Blanco and Michael Obeley, who re-opened the spot about three weeks ago. They're keeping the name and going for a steak and Mexican grill concept, with late night hours on the weekends and regular weekday hours otherwise. I'll likely have more specifics for you in next week's Side Dish column.
Who's moved into the old Metropoltain?
CMB ROCKS!!! The beer and food are out of this world and the view while sitting by the firepits cannot be beat! You HAVE to try them out!!
We ate at Uchenna today. What a treat! Everything was delicious and fresh. We had lamb with ginger and chiles on the Injera (the sourdough pancake-like bread). The lemonade with rosewater was delicious, as was the iced tea with orange flower water. (There's also lasagna and spaghetti on the menu for culinary weenies.) The baklava was wonderful and very fresh.
Thanks so much for this article.
I am so happy wow that is all I can say. I was in Addis in 2006 and was invited in an ethiopian home for diner. I also had lunch or diner in Denver, Atlanta, Washington, nothing could be compared to the food I had at Uchenna in colorado spring. Amazing.
Cool thanks for opening.
I ate at Uchenna for the first time today. I had a collard greens dish with a cabbage salad on their pancake bread. It was delicious and I got half way through it and was stuffed and had to take the rest home. Looking forward to eating there again very soon!
""those who have no understanding of how business works, we know, will continue to vote for Socialists."
Deb, if your head for business is anything like your knowledge of politics, small wonder you're on the street. If Health Care Reform, where insurance companies get 32 million new customers, is socialist, Warren Buffett is Karl Marx.
Do you know who they are, Deb?
The FAC is crazy for letting GOG go!! I have ranked my meals at cafe 36 in the top 3 meals of all time in COS. All of the previous incarnations of the resturant at the FAC have not been successful including the plans they had in place for the grand opening (when the GOG stepping in at the last minute to the rescue). We'll see what happens...
Yes, Silly Bear, it's true that Daniel Angerer's experiment with his wife's breast milk helped cement my idea for an April Fool's blurb. Though I'm not certain how you knew conclusively that it served as the creative inspiration. (Come on — I get original ideas sometimes ...)

Funny. By the way, here's the real breast-milk cheese story that ran all over the country in March that served as the creative inspiration...
you should submit these to "wait, wait don't tell me" - classic!!
taro bubble tea for the win
Looking forward to having a Coffee & Tea Zone location closer! Love the drinks. Especially the avocado shake with boba.
Yes, the sign above the door says Copperhead Road.
Summerzzzoff it is going to be a nightclub/bar called Copperhead Road. If it is the same place you are talking about.
I agree, Plate was slow and average at best.
Anyone know the new resturant going up across the street from a Safeway on Academy and N. Carefree area? It has CR on the doors.
I'm not surprised about Plate closing. We ate there just once, but we felt it was over-priced mediocre food with a rude and slow wait staff. We waited for our food for 1 hour after we ordered it. We are all for independently-owned restaurants and support them as much as we can. However, we support good ones and are not going to spend a lot of money for a mediocre meal.
I'd like to state I've actually seen the medal for a European Master Chef. Ask him yourself. Who would deny such a great feat?
Get over yourself and realize "Master" isn't a title you spend $3K in cash to have a board of suits sit in front to give such a title.
Chef Victor Matthews deserves the respect as a Master. He's owned the Black Bear for 10 years now.
