Yum D Bar!

Last night was Nick's night to make we went out. After last month's issue of 5280 neither of us was able to get the image of D Bar's beautifully constructed "Cake and Shake" out of our heads. This new Denver restaurant headed by Food Network celebrity Keegan Gerhard did not disappoint--we were even graced with the star's presence at the dessert bar, creating for an eager crowd of sugar hounds.

The desserts did not disappoint. I unashamedly ordered the cake and shake, and was met with a deliciously light and at the same time dense chocolate cake. The "crumb", as they say, was perfectly moist and not cumbly at all. The frosting was chocolaty but not deadly. And the vanilla shake was frothy and creamy with tiny chocolate covered cookie nibs floating around. Nick had a tropical flan which was gorgeous, flanked by sweet plantains. We also tried the Mac and Cheese which was surprisingly good for a place that doesn't specialize in dinner.

We'll certainly be back!
