Westword’s Best of Denver 2014 is out and, as always, it’s a fun read.
A few highlights … Best Dive Bar is Lakeview Lounge; Best Contemporary-Cocktail Bar is Williams & Graham; Best Late-Afternoon Happy Hour is Old Major; Best French Fries at Jonesy’s EatBar.
Sure to create controversy is Westword’s choice for Best Hamburger with the winner being new to the restaurant scene Humboldt Farm Fish Wine, located at the former site of Strings Restaurant. Readers choice is Cherry Cricket. As it should be.
Another hotly contested category is always Best Steakhouse. And the winner is Elway’s Cherry Creek and Elway’s Downtown. Reader’s choice: Capital Grille.
As usual, Westword has “unique” categories. Best Mind-Altering Edibles That Don’t Contain THC: The Chocolate Therapist. Best Place to Contemplate Death With Others: Denver Death Cafe.
