Denver: New ideas

Denver: New ideas

ChoLon, LoDo’s new Asian bistro (pictured, chef Lon Symensma), is playing with “digital engagement”—backstory videos and uncensored critiques on its interactive website, and a webcam that turns line prep into reality TV. And while Boulder starts to snore at 10, we’re just getting going. Some faves: Satchel’s on 6th late-night “shift meals” (you get what the servers eat) for $20 after 9, and the hipster-urban El Diablo serving Mexican takeout till 4 a.m.

Score: 5
