Troy Guard to open TAG | RAW BAR Early 2011
“We’re in the very beginning stages of developing the menu concept, but there’s no hood and there’s no grease trap, so everything that we serve will be raw,” says Leigh Sullivan-Guard.
That’s the idea behind TAG | RAW BAR, a new restaurant from Leigh and her husband, Troy Guard, the chef/owner of TAG, the whimsical, globetrotting food temple at 1441 Larimer Street that the couple opened in 2009.
TAG | RAW BAR, which will be the first restaurant to inhabit the soon-be-be-renovated pedestrian walkway on the north side of Larimer Square, is scheduled to open in early 2011 in a former gift shop. The space, according to Leigh, is small, with room for 20 to 30 seats, which will be divided among a bar, counter and dining room. “It’s teeny-tiny, but it’s going to be a really swanky, cutesy, intimate restaurant with a sexy vibe,” she says. “I love the idea of this restaurant, because the size is manageable, we can share the staff from TAG, it’s familiar to us, and it gives Troy an opportunity to break out of his box and do something a little bit different with raw foods.”

Best Fusion Restaurant 2010 : Westword Magazine
Troy Guard’s TAG, which he launched last May in Larimer Square, swaggers one of Denver’s brashest border-crossing kitchens — a kitchen that slants toward the other F-word. So what? Guard is a master of multiculturalism, and his menu, which is full of playfully modern dishes that usually erupt into something wondrous, is smart, hip and approachable. He sets off his flash-seared hiramama with pricks of jalapeños and Pop Rocks in a basin of white soy and yuzu; creates his own interpretation of French onion soup, which results in irresistible “soup” dumplings that explode with juice; and plates his duo of meaty lamb chops, studded and glazed with all things Asian, in a pool of no fewer than four sauces. In the hands of a less confident chef, all this might spell disaster — but in Guard’s grasp, fusion turns out food that’s nothing short of miraculous.
