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

Every year, Westword publishes a little guide called the "Best Of Denver," wherein our writers rank the city's best stuff, including food. Last year, the Highlands Mommies -- the formidable northwest Denver parents group profiled in our cover story, "The Mommies" -- did their own "Best Of" for the Highlands.

Many of their picks are restaurants. Take a look and tell us what you think. Do the Mommies have good taste? Or should they stick to using rolling pins solely for crackin' skulls?

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.
