Euclid Hall dishes up vegetarian options for Best of Denver reader

While some people puzzle over the readers' pick for Best Fried Chicken, Leah wants to know the specific dish readers voted for when they awarded Euclid Hall the prize for Best Vegetarian Dish in a Non-Vegetarian Restaurant. "They have pretty much nothing vegetarian on their menu," she writes, "so if I'm missing something, I'd like to know."

While readers didn't note on their ballots which veggie dishes they like at Euclid Hall, we found an expert to help out. See also: - Best of Denver 2013 Readers' Poll: Meet the Food & Drink winners - Best Vegetarian Restaurant 2013: WaterCourse Foods - Euclid Hall: The bull's balls in their court
