Bones is a restaurant made by a cook, for cooks. It's a restaurant dreamed up by a guy who loves food unreservedly and opened for those who share his outsized passions. Borders? Canon? Fads? Fuck 'em. Nominally a noodle bar, Bones is really a loose conglomeration of plates and styles and techniques that came together only because one man thought to stick them together. But what makes Bones work — makes the place truly sing — is that each one of these plates is an act of love, an ode to flavors and tastes that cooks love. It's a peek behind the curtain, a kind of psychological report on the passions of the food-obsessed and the food-drunk. "Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are," Brillat-Savarin once said. And Bones, where owner Frank Bonanno and his guys cook what they like to eat, is simply this: the best new restaurant in Denver.

We celebrated our 27th Anniversary at Mizuna. Never read a bad review and we were so looking forward to it. My vote for most overrated on the planet - overpriced food the chef thought would impress but was a dud across the menu. Like the lobster mac and cheese tasteless glop. Had one of the best bottles of wine ever!

This place flat out SUX!!!! Food mediocre, and overpriced for what you get. If this is Frank's answer to affordable dining, then we're all getting ripped off!!! What's with a suited front house manager, cheesy!!!

Problem is, you could have 3 meals at Bones for the price of one at Twelve. And I notice Don's problem is with the Chef. Take it outside. The food is excellent and worth the win.
