Washington State wants to donate forty pounds of cherries to an "iconic" restaurant in every state in the nation, in hopes of inspiring recipes that push its product. A Washington PR company asked for Cafe Society's help in coming up with the right restaurant in Colorado for a fruit-filled delivery -- and we were happy to oblige.
So, of course, were all the commenters who responded to our query about which Denver restaurant would do right by a load of cherries.
Several suggested craft brewers, others ice cream spots. And then there was this from K.D. Bryan:
In lieu of some touristy craphole, I'd like to see them go to a restaurant who knows what they're doing instead. A few suggestions: Frasca. Fruition (fruit's in the name). Rioja. Sweet Action Ice Cream. Boulder Ice Cream. D Bar Desserts.
What restaurant or brewer would you suggest? More important, how would you suggest it use the cherries?
