THE CRAWLING CRAB

The Crawling Crab 

  Crawling Crab's interior - Photo by Lori Midson

781 South Federal Boulevard
Denver, Colorado 80219
303-936-0123
 
In the midst of Denver’s Little Asia on Federal Boulevard in Denver, Colorado there’s a Crawling Crab. Actually this small, hip, modern, Cajun-seafood restaurant beckons customers with a bright-red Dungeness Crab on the sign. Funny how one can judge this restaurant by it’s cover (facade.) It’s a good facade.
Wooden dock-pilings, heavy ropes, even a Captain’s Wheel and a shark gives one a not-so-subtle hint that this is a restaurant where one may find seafood. Blue Crab, Dungeness Crab, Snow Crab, King Crab Legs, Lobster, Crawfish (in season - call,) Shrimp, Clam and Oysters are on the menu - served with a choice of four different seasonings, such as RAJUN CAJUN, in varying degrees of heat (mild, medium & hot.) Market Price is the going rate for most of the above. The shrimp runs around $8.99 for a full pound, and they are huge.

Also Fried Wings, Chicken Tenders, Pop Pop Chicken, Baskets W/Cajun Fries: Catfish or Shrimp or Calamari or Oysters,
then there’s Gumbo, soups and salads, and beer - the only adult beverage at the present time.

Back to the shrimp, which I shall do (in actuality) A.S.A.P. - the pound of huge: heads, tails and shell-on boiled shrimp is served in a plastic bag (double-bagged) swimming in sauce, which, in my case, was The Crawling Crab’s All-In sauce which consists of, as the name implies, a measure of each of the three sauces, or… Let me say that this was the best - quality and value - shrimp dish (even without the dish) I think I’ve ever had. The shrimp were large, fresh and firm, the sauce was delicately seasoned, yet fully flavored, the portion was HUGE. I’m thinking at least a dozen large shrimp for $8.99. Bet this price won’t last. I was very happy with my dinner. View the complete menu on the Crawling Crab’s Official Website.
 

 
FANELLI'S  AMICI'S - Traditional-Neighborhood-Family-Italian
4300 Wadsworth Blvd.
Wheat Ridge, CO 80033
303.455.5585
 
Fanellis Amici's is a Italian neighborhood restaurant serving traditional Southern Italian cuisine and pizza.  The rather large restaurant has a bank of cozy booths (white and black checkered table-cloths) along one windowed wall, more booths across the room and tables in the middle.   It's a nice room for family dining.
 
We were there one time and ordered a half-and-half pasta and ravioli dinner. There is a choice of pastas: either ( thick) homemade noodles or regular (thin) spaghetti. I opted for the thick noodles which were cooked just right but were rather plain. The sauce was also rather plain, maybe a bit of oregano will help it. It was not bad, at all, just lackluster. On the other hand the sauce was very fresh with the taste of fresh tomatoes, so maybe it's. The dinner comes with either two meatballs, 2 sausages or one of each. We went with the sausages. The large balls were very tasty and prepared with the right ingredients - decent but a bit too condensed, lighter would have been better.
 
The dinner includes (a plain) salad or soup or Garlic bread.  *A little unusual to offer bread instead of soup or salad but I'm not complaining at least there's a choice of something;  Although fresh and chilled the salad was plain with a few rounds of pepperoni.  It could have used a slice of tomato, or a bit of onion or carrots.  It was fairly large.  The ravioli (about 6) were fine and the Garlic bread was exceptional.  ($10.75)
 
I was satisfied and would like to return to try the pizza. 
 
Also from the menu: Spaghetti dinner (thick or thin) with two meat-balls or sausage ($10.00,) other pasta dinners: Tortellini, Ravioli, Cavatelli or Rigatoni w/meat $10,75, Also baked dishes and combinations ($10.75-$13,00,) Steak Dinner with side of spaghetti ($23.00.)  Nightly Specials include, Monday and Wednesday night Spaghetti dinner ($7.75.)  All dinners are served with a salad or soup or Garlic Bread.   *The menu says (plain) bread is included with the dinner.
 
Single Item Pizza: 10" - $9.50, 12" - $10.50 and 14" - $12.00; Other pizzas from $10.00 - $15.25.
 
Amici's also serves Lunches, Sandwiches, Large Salads, Cannolis, Calzones and desserts - Full bar service and on site parking.

THE EDGEWATER INN
5302 W 25th Ave Edgewater, CO 80214(303) 237-3524
Cozy Tavern, across from Sloan's Lake, serving Colorado Pizza for decades; also serving Colorado Calzones, pasta, sandwiches etc.  This neat little tavern resembles a coastal bar.  The "EDGE" and Bonnie Brae Tavern have been serving a similar Colorado-style pizza forever.  The small horseshoe-shaped bar is lively with a steady group of regulars manning their "posts."
 
Copper mugs hanging from the racks reveal the fact that the "Edge" serves the infamous "Moscow Mule" cocktail, which consists of  ginger beer, vodka and lime juice.  The cocktail gained fame when anti-Russian sentiment was prevalent in the US.  Smirnoff invented and promoted the drink to sell more vodka.  Another FAV at the Edge is a huge schooner of beer (about $3.25 - depending on the beer;)  they also have Happy Hour specials.
The Edgewater Inn is very casual, and the prices are moderate.  There is a parking lot across the street.

Although the cuisine is Italian Lechuga's is primarily a Latino restaurant & bar.  
 
Lechuga's (formerly Carbone's Pizza) is an Old School neighborhood Italian-style Restaurant in what used to be *Denver's "Little Italy."  Around the 70s the neighborhood made a switch, it is now a predominately Hispanic area. 
If you enjoy a plate of old-school Italian spaghetti and meatballs (or sausage) with a dinner salad and garlic-toast for around $4.50, read on:  Tuesdays at Lechuga's offers such a deal (5pm - 9pm.)  Add a Happy Hour glass of wine for another two bucks.  The lounge/bar area at Lechuga's is a serious adult place, so we do not recommended it for families/kids, however there is a family dinning area on the other (north) side of the building.  There is a parking lot behind the restaurant.
 
Buckets of pasta, other pastas/entrees, square thin-crust pizza, sandwiches, salads & soups are available to take out or for dining in. 
 
Lechuga's serves sausage sandwiches, very tasty.  The other night I had a sausage sandwich, They call it a Conoli (in Denver conolis or connolles are sausage sandwiches rather than Italian desserts.)  It was tasty.  In fact it's one of the best sausage sandwiches/subs in Denver.  It's two hunks of Lechuga's spicy sausage wrapped in a buttery/yeasty dough sandwiched between cheese and pieces of jalapeño? pepper.  I'm not sure if this was the Little Devil or the Conoli.  Whatever it's called it definitely will be called for again.
Menu/prices may have changed since this posting, call.  Once again "Although the cuisine is Italian Lechuga's is primarily a Latino restaurant & bar."

This is a favorite Denver Italian restaurant, maybe the favorite...
Patsy's is an Old-School traditional (1921,) neighborhood Italian Restaurant in an area which used to be Denver's "Littlie Italy."   (Think "MOONSTRUCK")  The 3600 block of Navajo is home to a half-dozen art galleries.  The First Friday of each month brings crowds of Hep-Cat art lovers to the galleries for food and wine, as well as art viewing.
Spaghetti, Lasagna, Ravioli and other Traditional Southern Italian entrees are on Patsy's menu.

Homemade Spaghetti - Patsy’s Specialty! ($10.75.)

STAR KITCHEN *  *  * * * FIRST STOP CHINESE.
2917 West Mississippi Avenue
Denver, Colorado 80219
Tel: (303) 936-0089

Several Chinese acquaintances recommended Star Kitchen when I asked the probing question "which is the best Chinese restaurant in Denver."

Rather plain and uninspiring, the interior of Star Kitchen is basic with
the exception of several large fish-tanks in the rear, holding live Lobster,
Crab and fish.  It does - somehow - have a San Francisco vibe.
The Star Kitchen is located in a small nondescript strip-mall with (plenty of) parking places in front.
The Star Kitchen's enormous MENU has everything from Dim Sum - Chicken Feet with Black Bean Sauce to fresh Lobster, and everything in-between.  Literally everything you've ever seen on a Chinese menu is there.
     Sesame Chicken..........$8.95 for instance, served with rice. 
The flavor is perfect, the portion is large and the dinning experience is authentic.  Appetizers, soups, Hot Pots, Sake, drinks and of
course chop-sticks are available.  The Hot Pots will definitely work when the snows hit Denver.

Torres Mexican Food; Traditional, Family Mexican Food
1597 S Federal Blvd
Denver, CO 80219
PH: 303-934-8857
 
Traditional Mexican food served unpretentiously, yet respectfully, in a family-friendly, homey restaurant is what Torres is all about. The energy is high; the restaurant is spotless; the owners and staff aim to please, and they do. 
All of the staff of this restaurant seem to try a bit harder.   All are attired in black and white.  A steady flow of servers and bussers patrol the booths and tables, bringing food, filling salsa-bowls and refilling drinks; they're on-the-ball providing courteous service.  Something (someone) inspires them, good job.  
 
This young woman, Brittany (right) somehow elevates the dining expierience, making one feel as though they're at Denver's Brown Palace rather than at a working-man's Mexican restaurant.  If you own a black-tie restaurant and need a superb server, come check out this young lady.  Bet you won't be dissapointed.    
 
I'm not, by any means, demeaning this restaurant.  Torres is a casual, working-man's restaurant with no pretentions to be anything else.  It is a very good casual restaurant.
