Another smart response to "You Are Where You Eat," this one from Steve Poquette of Parker, touting Mezcal: It should be a restaurant where you would proudly take friends and family from out of town (as opposed to business associates). It should be a restaurant that you feel embodies the cultural essence of Denver and its food. It must feel comfortable to you and your guests -- not overly pretentious or pricey, but not too "divey," either.

Mezcal meets those criteria for me. It's quintessentially Denver. It's got a great mezcalrita and menu, good food, and a fun atmosphere. It's even located in an area that shouts "This is Denver."
