At Masterpiece, you order at the counter, pay your green, wait for someone to shout your name over the din and then pick up some of the best contemporary deli fare you may ever eat. It even won our 2010 Best of Denver award for Best Sandwiches! Partners Justin Brunson and Steve Allee and their crew make their own shrimp-and-tofu miso soup and cure their own gravlax. If you're going to haul out the ego and deem your restaurant -- or, in this case, deli -- a "masterpiece," you'd better live up to the superlative. Masterpiece does.
