For this week's review, Gretchen Kurtz visited Atticus, a spot in the University of Denver neighborhood that's made some changes since it opened in February -- partly at the request of that neighborhood. "We were supposed to open more as a bar with shared plates, but everybody kept coming in and thanking us for putting a restaurant in there," says Brian Midtbo, one of the owners. But in the transformation to a grown-up restaurant, Atticus has definitely suffered some growing pains, Kurtz writes....and readers agree. "Spot on review," says one.

I want a full stomach after I eat. They want to be a grown-up restaurant, they should serve grown-up portions!!!
Another +1 to this review. I live in the neighborhood and love what they're trying to do at Atticus, but I've had experiences similar to Gretchen's with both food and service.
