Our restaurant critic, Gretchen Kurtz, took much of 2016 off — but she returned in August, revitalized after her sabbatical. And a good thing, too, because restaurants continue to open at an unprecedented pace in metro Denver. Her mission remains the same: to visit a restaurant anonymously — and more than once — and then offer an honest, no-holds-barred assessment. Since her return, she's reviewed eight eateries that all opened this year. Here they are, along with links to her originals reviews.
