Restaurant Kevin Taylor Restaurant Review: Chef Kevin Taylor's signature restaurant has an understated urbane elegance equally suitable for a power dinner or a romantic one. This luxurious sage and gold room offers chic comfort with wide silk upholstered armchairs, heavy gold tapestries at the windows, wood paneling and a changing display of paintings from Denver galleries. For appetizers, try the open raviolo surfaced with baby artichokes, the seared foie gras with crème fraîche sorbet, or the yellow tomato gazpacho with roasted pepper gelée. Other highlights: Broken Arrow Ranch antelope steak with a red currant sauce and port-poached pear, and rack of veal and confit sweetbreads with fingerling potato gratin and braised baby leeks. The fact of the red meat-fish dichotomy is no problem since we are able to choose the appropriate accompaniment from Taylor's selection of over 20 wines by the glass, which includes a '96 Napa California Girard Chardonnay and a '97 Markham Vineyards Merlot. The finale to this tasteful indulgence is the bittersweet liquid-center chocolate cake, a house specialty.
