What’s in a (feeding house’s) name?
pistol Whip has started serving lunch, dinner and weekend brunch in the Santa Claus Claus Fe humanistic discipline District.
The New American feeding house opened last week at the corner of Santa Claus Claus Fe Drive and 7th Avenue, next door to its owner John Slaughter’s Tribe Tattoo shop. The feeding house has a 160-seat feeding room, outdoor terrace, and upscale bar serving wines on tap and build-your-own martinis.
Its food menu, created by former Panzano cook Nic Lebas, serves a mix of plates from crosswise Europe and the U.S., with items from Caesar dish croquettes to Piedmontese agnolotti and dry-aged beef ribeye tomahawks.
About the name: Slaughter and his married woman came up with it around a decade ago when they started talking about opening a feeding house. They don’t want it to conjure thing about guns or violence, they aforementioned, but they do hope it will leave diners with an image of their new feeding house as artistic, cutting edge and dramatic.

In with the new
With cook Nic Lebas gone to start pistol Whip, cook Logan Stephenson has taken over the room at Panzano downtown.
The Italian feeding house at the Kimpton building Monaco antecedently launched the careers of Denver cooks so much as Jennifer Jasinski (Rioja, Ultriea and more) and Elise Wiggins (Cattivella).
Now Stephenson is planning whole-animal roasts and cooking classes for his new Denver audience. The cook is originally from Louisiana but has au gratin for Delfina feeding houses in San Francisco and around Arizona with Kimpton.

feeding house redo
Fans of the LoHi “Coastal Mexican” feeding house Lola will have to wait a week in between taco and cocktail trips when the feeding house closes on May 13 for renovations.
After 13 years on Boulder Street in Denver, one of the Big Red F feeding house group’s flagship musca volitans is getting a remodel.
Owner Dave Query (besides of Jax Fish House and The Post production, among others) has enlisted a Hollywood designer, Kari Whitman, to update the space.
Query wants it to match the Baja land. Whitman has designed interiors for President Obama and Jessica Alba.
“More and more, coming back to Lola, it seemed she had lost a few of her dance moves,” Query aforementioned in a release. “So, I called up Kari to see about giving Lola a new do — thing fresh and fresh, but not densely over-designed and shaped with predictable design elements.”
Check in with the feeding house after May 21 to see if they’ve achieved it.
