TAG RAW BAR Restaurant Review: Occupying a diminutive space in the Larimer Square walkway, TAG RAW BAR, Troy Guard’s sibling to TAG, also on Larimer Square, is the kind of restaurant that makes your body thank you for plying it with food that’s good for your heart, soul and mind. There are no hoods or state-of-the-art ranges that shoot flames --- just strikingly attractive plates and bowls clustered with fresh raw vegetables, including smashed cucumbers, organic soy beans, Hawaiian hearts of palm and haricots verts. Guard also turns out innovative seafood and sushi that glistens like morning rain, a trio of ramen noodle bowls and a small selection of “almost raw” meats, including an ostrich carpaccio sheened with tangerine vinegar. There's a boozy cocktail syllabus, a smart wine list and saké, as well as fresh-pressed fruit and vegetable juices.
