The latest issue of 5280 magazine is on newsstands now, highlighting the best-of-the-best in the denver dining scene. The 25 best restaurants issue is what this foodie/blogger looks forward to most every year so you can imagine I have been attached to it since it came out a few days ago.
There are over 10 new restaurants featured this year, showing that the seasoned players in denver better watch out for the rookies who are coming out-of-the-gates swinging for the fences (wow, did I just make a baseball reference… who am I!). Surprisingly I have only dined at 11 of the 25 restaurants which means I need to step-up an start eating my way through this list.

3.   cholon (lodo) *

      Hi Lia, I had to look a couple of them up myself. I swear, there are so many new restaurants it is hard to keep track of them. I hope your boyfriend takes you out to one of these 25 options! If you go to one, I would love to hear what you think!

    I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful
    than ever before.
