Acorn has already made its mark on Denver.

More than 200 restaurants have opened in metro Denver this year, with more hurrying to open their doors before the end of 2013. Some are updated versions of earlier restaurants, others are completely new. And while some are far too young to have been reviewed, they already look like they will be great additions to the local dining scene. See for yourself: We've just posted our slide show of the 25 most promising restaurants of 2013 -- all of which are eligible to be named Best New Restaurant in the Best of Denver 2013, coming on March 28.
