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?
