Mama Mia! A great new Italian Restaurant opens in Denver for the New Year!
By Christopher Davies

ILPOSTO
Andrea Frizzi's Il Posto recently opened to a packed house of raving guests. Il Post means "The Place" in Italian. And this place is hot! It's located in Denver's Uptown City Park neighborhood in the former location of Dario's Restaurant on 17th street just five blocks away from Strings.

The cozy, well-appointed dining room seats 55 guests and all eye's are focused on the Chef who's kitchen is centerpiece with flashy fire-powered Grills and a Salamander broiler. Chef Frizzi has all eyes on his guests too!

"I am most happy cooking for people. I love to see them happy." states Frizzi.

Frizzi was born in Milan. He grew up while his family owned a "Salermeria" or Gourmet Grocery Store. He has worked in New York, Seattle and more recently in Denver as Chef of Via and Cucina Colore.

Recently divorced, Chef Frizzi was ready for a new challenge. His simple concept is to create great food and a fantastic experience for his customers. "I want to make you something that you will remember the next day". Said Chef Frizzi.

ILPOSTO'S Wine program gets our stamp of approval for originality. They are offering 30 different wines by the glass. A series of Wine Lockers are mounted on the wall and leased to customers ($250 per year), mounted with personally engraved name labels. The lockers hold six bottles of the customers favorite wines. Wine locker customers have VIP status for making reservations. They can even call ahead and arrange to have their wines opened and properly decanted!

Sommelier Dan Kratzer strides from table to table offering pairing suggestions and pouring wines. This Denver native has worked at the Barola Grill, Cucina Rustica in Vail as well as the highly acclaimed Orient Express in Europe.

Try the Chef's "Tagliere" (sliced) appetizer plate of delicious dried meats(24 month aged Prosciutto, smoked Mortadella & Cacciagorino) and imported cheese( Mozzarella, Alegio and Spressa), Saffron Risotto Milanese style with gold flake, Beef short rib, leave room for the home made chocolate crepe's.
