Troy Atherton Guard's first restaurant is also his best -- a wild culinary thrill ride through some of the more extreme realms of the fusion canon. Guard is a talented chef, working right at the top of his game, and the crew that he has backing him does an excellent job of translating his very distinctive cuisine for the crowds that pack this Larimer Square restaurant every night. If you can manage it, get a seat upstairs. But even a night spent in the basement can be made tolerable by an interesting cocktail list and fantastic apps from TAG's kitchen.

Nothing here is cooked in an oven or open flame and everything's meant for sharing. Get down on crazy edibles like the monkfish liver torchon, wild boar, and Australian-imported kangaroo tartare.
Food: $5 select appetizers Drink: $5 wine, beer, cocktailsMon-Fri 2pm-6pm
Chef Troy Guard’s bust new downtown joint. Try the rabbit empanadas and the beef sliders with a gorgonzola topper. Small plates $6-$14, entrees $19-$29. “More Info" for review
