Photos: The food of Westword's Dish 2012

Last night Westword's annual food party turned eighteen, and more three dozen local restaurants and food trucks stopped by to help celebrate the food fete. Held in the Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, Dish 2012 celebrated the city's culinary culture by serving up samples from some of the city's best eateries, all invited to participate in the event by Cafe Society scribes. For more photos from the night, see our full slideshow, "Westword Dish 2012." In the meantime, continue through for photos of last night's mouth-watering fare.
