Every year, our picks in the Food & Drink section of the Best of Denver inspire heated debate -- delayed by a day this year, because of a glitch in our comments function. But that seems to be working now, so let the online arguments begin!

While I firmly believe that Fruition is absolutely the best restaurant in Denver, I think it's a mistake to classify it as an "expense-account dinner."
Part of what makes Fruition so great is its reasonable prices and value for what you get. While it may not be a place that most of us can afford to go to every Friday, it's not even close to being one of the most expensive restaurants in Denver. I don't think Fruition has a single entree over $25. A nice dinner for two (two apps, two entrees, two deserts, good bottle of wine) can easily be had for $150 or less. That's the kind of thing that I'm happy to spring for once or twice a month -- especially considering what you get. If I'm eating on the company dime, I'll go someplace like Capital Grille, where the bill would be at least 50% more.
