Reader: If Atticus wants to be a grown-up restaurant, it should serve grown-up portions

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!!!

Adds DenverBen:

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.

Have you eaten at Atticus? What do you expect from a neighborhood restaurant?
