Openings: A “Top Chef” winner’s new Mexican joint, Denver’s first distillery-restaurant and more


One big happy family

What do you get when you combine Justin Cucci’s (Root Down, Linger) food with local distiller extraordinaire Rob Master’s beverages? You get The Family Jones Spirit House, the city’s first restaurant/distillery combo. The space is cool, cocktails are strong and small plates include three-cheese fondue served in a pumpkin. This is a family you might actually want to be a part of. 3245 Osage St., Denver, 303-481-8185; Tues.-Thurs. 4-10 p.m., Fri. 3 p.m.-12 a.m., Sat. 12 p.m.-12 a.m., Sun. 12-10 p.m.; thefamilyjones.co

Meat and greet

It’s the time of year when our thoughts naturally turn to meat. Or, if they don’t, The Juniper Pig would like them to. The newest spot to open inside the Stanley Marketplace, Juniper is a butcher shop with benefits. (Benefits being take-out dinners, sandwiches and charcuterie in addition to the fine meat being chopped up.) Just how serious does The Juniper Pig take its meat? Just ask the custom, state-of-the-art, pink Himalayan sea salt-lined meat ageing cabinet. Except you can’t, because it’s a cabinet. 2501 Dallas St., Aurora, 720-328-8930; Sun. 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Mon.-Tues. 3-7 p.m., Wed.-Fri. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sat. 9 a.m.-8 p.m.; stanleymarketplace.com

New New Mexican

You probably already know Chef Hosea Rosenberg, either from his Blackbelly restaurant or from that one time he won TV’s greatest culinary competition, Bravo’s “Top Chef.” Now Rosenberg wants you to get to know his New Mexican food, and Santo is where he’ll be cooking it for you. Feast on wild boar Navajo fry bread, stacked blue corn enchiladas and red chile posole beginning Saturday, Nov. 18. 1265 Alpine Ave., Boulder, 303-442-6100; santoboulder.com

Cr–pe expectations
