In Denver’s pre-foodie days, the scene was pretty bleak, but one chef stood out for his pioneering efforts to elevate dining in the Mile High City. Kevin Taylor was THE name for decades. Today, after a break to decompress, he is back and contributing in a new way, working side-by-side with his sons to launch a top-notch dining destination in an underserved area. Hickory & Ash, in a new development in Broomfield next to the First Bank Center, is far from the over-stuffed, uber-competitive city center dining melee that Taylor’s previous restaurants served. Self- described as a “meatery,” choice cuts of meat are highlighted – but vegetarian fare is also expertly prepared.
Based on the experience of a recent sneak peek dining preview with samples of various dishes, the Taylors have much to offer any diner who seeks a quality meal. And lots of free parking is a welcome bonus!
