The beautiful people of Cherry Creek, young and old, flock to this jazzy space, the entire front of which opens to the sidewalk in nice weather. The space is decorated in what sound like food-themed Crayola colors: vanilla-white and sherbet-orange, lime-green and cocoa-brown, all setting diners up for a parade of savory dishes. Start with the paper-thin zucca chips—faintly oily, addictively crispy, deep-fried zucchini—and then move on to an entrée; pasta, fish, and
meat are each kissed with just the right amounts of Mediterranean herbs and sauces. The staff is smiley and reflects the cheerful exuberance of the atmosphere, and the lively bar is usually packed three deep.
