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.

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.
