But readers have other quibbles with Knowlton. Says Denver Dave:
Andrew Knowlton is a self-possessed know-it-all. Ever catch him when he was judging Iron Chef? Total jerk off -- who seriously needs to wash his hair. I have no problem with LInger, Pinche or Pizzeria Locale but are we seriously saying that they are among the 50 top new restaurants in the U.S.? Give me a break.
Forget the rest of the country -- what do you think are the best new restaurants in metro Denver? Post your suggestions below.
