A few weeks ago I went to Denver, CO to help a friend find a place to live for a job relocation. What a beautiful city! We were only there for a couple of days, but we definitely made the most of our time and explored as much as we could while visiting. Now, food is one of my passions and on our last day, we wanted to go to black owned establishments, in particular, to celebrate Juneteenth.
Of course we went to Google and found this little gem called Intersections located in a nice shopping strip. There was inside seating available and since we were the only people there at the time, we stayed. Masks were required while inside unless you were eating/drinking. There were these cute photographs all over of Dr. Seuss theme and that was an element I noticed right away. The menu had some really delicious options and although I wanted to venture out and try something I never had, I decided to have the Chicken and Waffles.
The waffles were light and fluffy, with the right amount of crisp around the edges and a batter that was barely there on the chicken with a small “kick” at the end that made this meal so scrumptious. Before our meal was ready, we had a chance to speak with the managing partner, Mr. Richard Humbert. We discussed my living in Atlanta and all that had been going on with the protesting, looting, police injustice and even Mayor Lance-Bottoms and how I felt about her as a leader, and also the climate of America. Our food was great, and the conversation matched.
If you have a chance to get to Denver or if you live there, check out Intersections. They are located at 8241 East Northfield Blvd, Denver, CO 80238. Their phone number is 303-963-5909 and website is intersectionsof.com. Thank you Mr. Humbert for your great hospitality and thank you for the enlightening conversation. I plan to go back and try something else when I return to Denver in a few months. Let’s support this black owned business and spread the word throughout our community.
