Is the food atSqueaky Bean
overrated? Gretchen Kurtz loved almost everything she tried there while dining out forthis week's review
(not the fried chicken ballontine, however), but other diners have a few bones to pick with her.
To even speak French Laundry in the same breath as Squeaky Bean is an abomination to foodies everywhere. I have to agree with Cap_Hill_Cowboy in the sense that yes, the food was good, inconsistent yes, and to be honest, didn't necessarily blow my mind.
I hate to break it to my fellow Denver-ites, but we are simply not on the cutting edge of the food scene here. I travel to NY and LA regularly, and have to admit; ideas such as Squeaky, Linger and Green Russell have been institutions in these cities for 5-10 years.
Let's just pump the brakes a bit and perhaps get some additional experience under our collective belts before we go espousing on how ground-breaking our copy-cat chefs are here in the mile-high city.

Is Den_Food being too harsh? Or did Kurtz go too easy on Denver's "copy-cat" chefs? Meow...
