October 16th, 2010 Posted by Chefs, Culinary Connectors, Denver, restaurants No Comment yet

Located in Denver’s Uptown neighborhood, the newly redecorated Strings has long been a Denver Institution. Owned by Noel Cunningham, the driving force behind several charities that have raised more than a million dollars, Noel is a genuine, straightforward, warm and hardworking man.

Lance Barto, is the Executive Chef at Strings. He was promoted back in February following the departure of Aaron Whitcomb (who’s now at Yia-Yia’s Euro Bistro). “A lot of people with way more experience than I have aren’t where I’m at, so I feel really lucky and blessed by the opportunity,” he says. Lance is doing just fine. He recently revealed his brand new fall menu and check out what he has planned for next Wednesday.
