Z Cuisine: A French Bistro in Denver

October 22, 2014 12:03 pm

A Parisian style bistro that prides itself on fresh ingredients and authentic flavors, Z Cuisine's success lies in blending the simple and the gourmet. The cozy bustle within this charming Denver restaurant makes it both intimate and lively.

The menu changes often and has a carefully chosen selection of French favorites, with items like cassoulet making regular appearances. For those unfamiliar with French cuisine, cassoulet is a blank term for a casserole that is slow cooked with various meats and white beans. Z Cuisine's current cassoulet, Z Cassoulet de la Maison au confit de canard, includes duck leg confit, pork belly and shoulder, house sausage, and white beans. The ingredients are high quality, many of which are locally sourced, and regulars suggest that the simple, elegant preparations let this freshness come forward and shine. Desserts are equally well-regarded, with profiterolles and crepes among the classic options available.

Choose from Z Cuisine's selection of wines and cocktails and make your meal complete.

Expecting Company? Here’s How to Prepare Your Home for Overnight Guests!

October 16, 2014 1:03 pm

You just found out that a few friends or family members are coming to visit for a few days, and they’re going to stay at your place instead of a hotel. Before you get stressed, check out these simple tips for making guests feel comfortable in your home.

  1. Create a private area. Although a separate guest bedroom is the ideal area for out-of-town guests, not all homes have this space. Give your guests a bit of added privacy by placing an air mattress in a little-used office instead of offering them the living room couch, or even put up a temporary partition at night if the couch is your only option.
  2. Provide linens. One of the most important things you can do to make guests feel at home is to provide them with clean sheets, towels, and other linens. Place a stack of towels on the bed, and be sure to turn down the bed sheets before they arrive.
  3. Offer storage. Your guests will feel like a nuisance if their suitcases are strewn all over the floor, so offer them a spare closet or even a corner of a low-traffic room where they can store their belongings.
  4. Invest in a few snacks. Oftentimes guests’ eating schedules are different from your own, and they might feel uncomfortable mentioning their hunger. Purchase a few tasty snacks before they arrive, and be sure to accommodate dietary restrictions like veganism or lactose intolerance.
