Chef Teri Rippeto's little garden restaurant is a longtime favorite of Denver's better chefs, mostly because the place never, ever disappoints. The kitchen is one of the best-educated in town when it comes to the notion of cooking and eating in concert with the seasons. Locality is not a trend here, it’s a way of life – for Rippeto and, she hopes, anyone who walks through the doors. “If I can do it on this huge scale, then maybe in some way the restaurant will inspire people to do it on a small scale for themselves,” she notes. From the entirely seasonal, garden-driven menu (produce is listed along with the name of its farmer) to the comforting service (60 percent of the customers are regulars, and with good reason) and plain-as-plaster dining room (cozy but threadbare armchairs), Potager is comfortable in its own skin, and isn’t that a better goal than perfection?
