Reader: I consider Denver one of the top restaurant cities in America
Old Major joined the Denver dining scene in 2013.
Bah humbug! The day after Christmas, we posted a comment from a reader who advised, "If you're looking for 'local regional fare,' forget it here." But other readers rose to defend Denver's rapidly expanding scene.
Have you ever actually *lived* anywhere else, or just been a tourist? Because I can guarantee you the big population in this state who have actually lived other places (NYC is not the only place in America) will tell you that the restaurants in Denver and Boulder far exceed the quality of those in most cities elsewhere. I've lived in many different places across the United States and Denver is the one place I've lived where people look at restaurants differently. Anywhere else you go, Chili's, Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse and Applebee's are essentially the only restaurants in most people's personal rolodex. Not here. For that, I consider Denver one of the top restaurant cities in America.
How do you think Denver rates as a restaurant city? What are you looking forward to in 2014?
