What’s been the best development on the Denver dining scene over the past twenty years? That’s what we asked readers last month, and they responded with craft beer, increased competition, chef-driven restaurants, local ingredients. And “the fact that we have a dining scene today.”
Denver’s dining scene has changed a lot over the past two decades — and so has DISH, Westword’s annual celebration of the Denver dining scene. This afternoon, our nineteenth food fiesta, at Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex will serve up dishes from close to fifty restaurants and food trucks, including some of Cafe Society’s favorites as well as readers’ picks from the Best of Denver. Among those that will be offering samples this year: Kevin Taylor, El Chingon, Slider Shack 303, Stoney’s, Azucar Bakery, Biker Jim’s, Boone’s, DiFranco’s, Interstate, Table 6, Early Bird, El Taco de Mexico, The Hornet, The Real Dill, Williams & Gra-ham, Gaetano’s, Lola, Mustard’s Last Stand, Maggie & Molly’s, Nile Ethiopian, Rio Grande, Trillium, Tin Star Smokehouse, Slotted Spoon, Pink Tank, Fuzzy’s Tacos, Central Bistro & Bar, Sugarlicious, Tamayo, Sushi Sasa, La Calle Taqueria, Jonesy’s, Orange Crunch, WaterCourse Foods, CHUBurger, Patxi’s Pizza, Row 14 Bistro & Wine Bar, Zengo, Dae Gee Korean BBQ, Donut Hut Cafe, Little Man Ice Cream, Jason’s Deli, Polished Tavern, Salvaggio’s Deli, Taita Peruvian Cuisine & Bar, and Udi’s.
