Dining in Denver: Not-To-Be-Missed Restaurants in Colorado’s Capital

Dining-in-DenverDenver Post dining critic Tucker Shaw recently compiled a list of restaurants that “define Denver’s culinary momentum.” The criteria for earning a spot on the list were quite lofty.  Cost, food, hospitality, service, and the space itself mattered, but the overarching question Shaw asked himself was, “Did my experience at this restaurant enrich my life?” If that’s not a tall order, I’m not sure what is.

Meeting the challenge and making the top 10 are Bones, Fruition Restaurant, Lola, Olivéa, Rioja, Root Down, and Table 6, among others. Honorable mentions for “trendsetters” include Argyll, Sushi SaSa, Twelve Restaurant, and Venue. Palace Arms at the Brown Palace and Restaurant Kevin Taylor receive honorable mentions under the”lasting hits” category.

Congratulations to these standouts in the Denver dining scene.
