On March 17, Glo Noodle House opened in Denver, bringing globally-inspired Asian food to the Berkeley neighborhood. It’s owned by a husband-and-wife team, Chris and Ariana Teigland. Chris runs the kitchen while Ariana rules the front of house. The pair met as chefs while working at Blackbelly in Boulder, and now together manage and cook for around 45 seats in their new spot. The name Glo pays homage to Chris' mother Gloria, a pastry chef who went by the nickname Glo and inspired him to cook.
The food at Glo is a hodgepodge of Asian staples including ramen, sake and raw fish. But the Teiglands wouldn't say the fare is traditional by any means. Expect lemon chicken ramen, hamachi with grapes, and bok choy with Marcona almonds. Drinks include a list of sake as well as wines, local beer and craft
cocktails mixed with ingredients such as green peppercorn, fresh shiso and serrano peppers. On the sweet side there's panna cotta laced with lemongrass, and the green tea and yuzu sponge cake, which, said the chef, reminds him of his mother the most.
