Denver Restaurants Wash Park Fooducopia is a great place to savor the work week

 

It’s that time of the day on Sunday when most of us start looking at our weekday circumstances. Will it be a fun-filled week or will it be a crazy week spent filled with back to back meetings? Regardless of the reward or loss of the week, moments must be taken into account.

Finding the time to savor is harder and harder to achieve these days. Distractions from all sorts of outlets continue to present themselves front and center.

A few weeks ago, my son shared with me he was taking a break from his video games. As he unfolded his reasonings I felt ashamed. By no means not about him. Gosh I was celebrating with a room full of pride. But rather I felt like I had let him down. When was the last time I did a check on my day-to-day circumstances and how they play out.

I quickly realized I was cutting too many corners. Less and less parts of the day to savor. And the most noticeable place was the dinner table. Dinner became less meaningful. I believe food is the centerpiece—but the art of conversation is what enhances the beauty of the table.

I applauded him for taking the first step—to step away. An act to recharge, reset and renew his mind. As for me, I did something else to step away. I got out our fancy tablecloth for dinner last Sunday and made sure to not skimp on dinner plans.

One of my favorite quotes about food is from Kafka: “So long as you have food in your mouth you have solved all questions for the time being.”

As we gear up for the week ahead of us, let’s remember to find time to savor.

During the week if you need a restaurant in Denver to recharge and refuel, be sure to visit us for breakfast, lunch or dinner this week at Denver Restaurants Wash Park Fooducopia—where good honest food meets at the corner of Race and Kentucky Avenue.

Have a great week!

Chef Richard’s new dinner menu is here!

 

If there’s any chef that can warm Colorado’s weather with a new dinner menu, it’s Chef Richard Glover—and that’s exactly what he is doing.  Organic Wash Park restaurant Fooducopia debuts a new dinner menu today that features a widely creative array of small plates. Meant to be shared, Chef Richard’s new menu is a culinary experience that blends comfort and good honest food.

 

The new winter dinner menu offers a wonderful variety of veggie, meat and seafood small plates to share. A particular focus is on the rich flavors that are great for a cold, winter night. For starters might I suggest a glass of wine and enjoy the cheese and fruit charcuterie board with nuts, honey and crackers. If sharing is not your thing, the menu also includes a lovely array of entree options such as the braised lamb shanks with roasted potatoes and veggies.

Chef Richard’s passion for food

 

If you have ever sat and talked with Chef Richard about food, you know when I say his passion for food is infectious. He wants you to love food as much as he does. When I caught up with Chef Richard to talk about the menu words like, “comfort” and “creative”  peppered the conversation.

“I am excited about this new menu,” he said. “I wanted to try to make the meal compliment the season.” Chef Richard became animated when he explained the process of making the house made pate with clarified butter and crostini. The meat small plates menu item will include a laborious process that will leave you filling happy. Trust me.

Sourcing from small, local food entrepreneurs, Fooducopia believes this is the key to providing healthy, delicious food. The menu includes many local Denver food producers.

So be sure to make a reservation here to enjoy Chef Richard’s new dinner menu.
