Pistol Whip in the Sante Fe Arts District

John Slaughter, owner of Tribe Tattoo, has partnered with Chef Nicholas Lebas of Panzano Restaurant fame to bring the Sante Fe Arts District in Denver an American fare restaurant. Slaughter is taking a page from Carboy Winery’s book and slowly taking over the 600 block of Sante Fe Drive.

Lebas, originally from France, has worked in kitchens across the globe including Europe, Mexico, Texas and Florida before landing in Denver. After two years at Panzano’s, the chef is creating his own menu including a hangar steak with local mushrooms, house tasso ham, potato puree, fried Tuscan kale and topped with a red wine shallot sauce, the Pistol Whip Burger topped with pimiento cheese, butter lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, grilled onion relish and Texas Pete sauce, Pappardelle Carbonara with wide ribbons, tender belly lardons, crab, shallots, cream, and parmigiano topped with a sunny side up egg and Steak Tartare with crispy potatoes, smoked quail egg, black olive vinaigrette, parsley cured egg yolk, and sunflower micro greens.
