Westword was here

“German cuisine doesn’t make many lists hyping the hottest, sexiest food these days. … But that doesn’t matter to Gaby Berben: She’s happy cooking the food she grew up with, living in an industrial town near Cologne. And she’s cooking more than ever since opening Gaby’s German Eatery at 245 South Harlan Street in Lakewood this spring.”

So reads the start of the article Mark Antonation wrote about us for Westword. Mark came to the eatery like any other guest, ordered something to eat and didn’t reveal himself until later when he asked if he could speak to the chef.

Of course he could. We had an animated and very nice chat and I have to say that his text reflects our conversation very well. So thank you Mark for the visit and for the interview!

Listen: Gabys German Eatery at Denver’s Restaurant Show

Well, that was a nice surprise! On the weekend new guests came to Gaby’s German Eatery. They said, they had heard of us in Denver’s most famous restaurant show at Cruisin’ 1430 AM with host Warren Byrne.

A guest named Steffen had called the station. He talked about his experiences with us and praised our cuisine. If you want to hear what he has to say, listen right here. It startes at minute 29:20 – not that the rest of the show wasn’t worth every minute either!

Many thanks dear Steffen! And Warren, if you want to know more about our authentic homemade dishes, you are always welcome on a bratwurst, a sauerbraten or a German cheesecake!
