Another Westword DISH is on the books — and this, our 22nd, was a great one. The Colorado fall weather cooperated for our annual celebration of the city's restaurant scene, making for a cool, sunny day as dozens of Denver's top eateries put out their best for the crowd. The smell of smoke was in the air as oysters and sausages sizzled on the grill and a special section dedicated to barbecue served brisket, pork, lamb and other slow-cooked meats.
Guests ate and drank their way through food and beverage samples from dozens of restaurants, food trucks, distilleries, wineries and bars. For more photos of all the food and drink at DISH, see our complete slideshow.

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.
