Reader: True Food menu may look good -- but those chairs do not

True Food Kitchen opened yesterday in Cherry Creek. It's the most successful concept out of Fox Restaurant Concepts, the company that also owns the nearby NoRTH, with locations in Arizona and California, and plans for several other cities after this Denver spot. The original True Food Kitchen opened in Scottsdale in 2008, with Dr. Andrew Weil, the bestselling cookbook author and a proponent of healthy foods and an anti-inflammatory diet, as a partner.

But while the emphasis at True Food is on healthy food that tastes good, one reader thinks those chairs look like back-breakers:

Says Denver Dave:

God, how I hate those chairs. Luca used to have them - the most ass freezing back breaking chairs known to man. Whatever convinced restaurants to think that metal chairs have any appeal? Metal chairs are only acceptable out of doors - period.

Do you agree with Denver Dave that metal chairs belong outdoors? What Denver restaurant has the most comfortable seating? The worst? Post your nominations below.
