This week Gretchen Kurtz reviews the Chowder Room, which specializes in a dish whose various incarnations are the stuff of big arguments on the East Coast. Denver's real liquid asset, though, is green chile, and we just served up our ten favorite versions of verde in Denver, every one of which could inspire fiery discussion. Says Sherri:

Oh, how I miss green chile! Impossible to find in Maine

Where, of course, there's plenty of chowder. Comments Kerry:

La Casita has the best green chile I've had in Denver....

Adds Matthew:

i've been pleasantly surprised by the green chile at DJ's on Tennyson. Heat, tender cubed pork landing somewhere between soupy and gravy-y.

Concludes Dave Barnes:

Thank you putting the entire article on a single page.

And thank you for noticing! Anyone else want to spill the details of their favorite green chile in town?
