Restaurateur Jeff Osaka’s first fine-dining establishment since he closed the acclaimed twelve, 12@Madison quickly won our hearts with its thoughtful, intelligent menu filled with dishes as spare and striking as the dining room itself. Grains and vegetables are given the utmost respect, with starring roles in such small plates as quinoa congee and rainbow carrots with North African spices and labneh cheese. Meats match the seasons, with unctuous braised pork, lamb and beef in the fall and brighter, livelier preparations in the spring. This is the newest restaurant on our list of 100, but 12@Madison became a Colorado classic the moment it opened last December.
