Reader: Denver's food is disappointing -- and don't blame it on the altitude

Where would you tell a tourist in Denver to eat? Last week, USA today advised foodies to try ten different spots -- two of which (D Bar and Restaurant Kevin Taylor) are about to close; another two (Cherry Creek Farmers' Market and Civic Center Eats) are out of season. And some readers weren't impressed by the six remaining choices, calling them "clueless." Then again, one reader wasn't impressed by Denver's dining scene at all.

Says Colton:

Being from Chicago, Denver's food is disappointing. You can try and blame it on the altitude but the best food here is made at home.

Why don't we give Colton a rousing welcome to the Mile High City? Where would you tell him to go to get a true taste of Denver?
