There's usually an element of suspense in a restaurant review. Is the food worth your money? Does the atmosphere add to the experience? Is this a place you should visit ASAP -- or avoid like the plague? But it's a foregone conclusion that my next review will be a rave: I'm writing about Lower48 Kitchen, launched this winter by two Frasca Food and Wine alums. And the restaurant was just named Best New Restaurant in the Best of Denver 2014. See also: Lower48 Kitchen is Denver's Best New Restaurant
But as anyone knows who's ever flipped to the last page of a book to read the ending first, or begged to hear how a scary movie ends while watching someone get chased by a knife/car/zombie, the devil is in the details.
So in this week's review, which will be posted on Cafe Society early tomorrow, you'll get a sense of the details that make Lower48 Kitchen so memorable -- and so deserving of one of the Best of Denver's top honors.
