Brrr! As the temperature plummeted last week, Laura Shunk quickly pulled together a warming list of "Denver's five best restaurant fireplaces", including the one at Barolo Grill (above).

But because we wanted to post that list in time to heat up that night's dinner reservations, we didn't have photos of some of the actual fireplaces -- and that left some readers cold:

Wrote GTFW:

Maybe I'm going blind, but it appears only two out of the five photos actually have fireplaces in them.

Said Chilly:

I like that you can't even see the fireplace in the Barolo picture. Well done!

A quick trip to Barolo Grill by the Westword photo intern took care of that gap, and we'll continue to track down pictures of the others, as well as check out the excellent suggestions posted by other readers. But there are thousands of restaurants in the metro area, and Cafe Society doesn't have a fulltime photographer. So after you give us a deserved slap, why not give us a hand? If you have photos of local restaurants that you think would improve our dining guide, please sent them to cafe@westword.com.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
