Whereas all photo booths print out images more or less instantly, Instabooth's model harbors a contemporary twist: it allows partygoers to instantly upload their high-resolution images to social-networking sites. With sights set on Facebook glory, up to 10 people can fit inside the sleekly designed booth, making it an ideal setting for group shots or tremendously cozy family dinners. Arcade-style buttons allow guests to choose between color or black-and-white shots lit by studio-grade lighting, and a 20-inch monitor displays the results prior to publication.
Fresh from their successful founding and franchising of the Smiling Moose Deli, local restaurateurs Kevin Sloane and brothers Bryan and Kevin Brutsch have tackled a new project: experimenting with what international influences can fit into a taco tortilla. Each freshly-made tortilla arrives filled with treasures from disparate and delicious cuisines, such as spicy chicken vindaloo, slow-roasted Mexican carnitas, or Caribbean jerk pulled pork. Garnishes and sides add a splash of color, texture, and intense flavor, from the housemade guacamole and pico de gallo, to the cripsy slaw blends and jicama.
A laid-back vibe permeates through Marg's LoDo and Cherry Creek restaurants, thanks to cool green walls, rustic wood accents, and generous patio seating. Diners share a leisurely hour or two among friends, with no need to don a blazer or formal taco bib, while sipping margaritas spruced up with herbs from the restaurant mini-garden.
Chef Matthew Franklin of Farro Italian Restaurant delights discerning palates with an extensive wine list and a menu of innovative Italian fare that won acclaim in the Denver Post. Catch a handcrafted, brick-oven-baked dough disk decorated with prosciutto, gorgonzola, and balsamic fig preserves ($12), or dive into spaghetti swimming with shrimp, scallops, mussels, and clams in a spicy red sauce ($17). The flat-iron steak, doused in gorgonzola butter and accompanied by a mountain of roasted Yukon Gold potatoes ($18), straightens out wrinkled tongues with an overload of savory flavors.
