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

Our long hunt for Westword's next restaurant reviewer has ended — and we're pleased to announce that we're returning to the tried and very, very true. Gretchen Kurtz, a seasoned pro who takes the role of reviewer very seriously, is back as our Cafe critic, offering her educated, opinionated take of the Denver dining scene.

Her first review will be posted here later this morning — and what restaurant did she decide to focus on?
One that serves the fried green tomato salad shown above, and whose entire menu is flavored with the energy and taste of the New West.

Read the review here this morning.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. 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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
