Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

This week Gretchen Kurtz reviewed the underrated and vegetarian-friendly Sunny Gardens, which specializes in dishes with mock meat. Mark Antonation, who's still eating his way up Federal Boulevard one restaurant at a time, stopped at the "burrito bunker" of the original Bubba Chinos. His meal there was a gut bomb, but definitely better than what we ate at the allegedly third-worst restaurant in the country (can you guess what it is?). And for her Chef and Tell interview, Lori Midson visited a top-notch local restaurant to chat with Beast + Bottle's pastry chef, Andrea Wight.

For food-filled events this weekend, check out our culinary calendar. And keep reading for more news from the Denver dining scene.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
