DISH, our annual celebration of the Denver dining scene, will fill Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex on Sunday, September 22. The event has evolved over the years -- just as Denver's restaurants have evolved. In delicious anticipation of DISH 2013, we've been looking back at many of the changes to the dining scene over the past two decades -- and recently asked Cafe Society readers to join us on our trip down memory lane.
The best response posted by noon tomorrow will win a pair of tickets to DISH. But in the meantime, here's an early favorite from milehin8tvbear:
The biggest development in Denver's dining scene is...THERE'S A DINING SCENE! I'm 40 years old and a Denver native. I remember there being two types of food establishments: fast food/buffet, and fine dining. To my knowledge there really weren't many options. Now, there's food everywhere you go in Denver and beyond. I'm even more proud to be a Denverite!
