A happy Thanksgiving to all who are enjoying their favorite food with friends and family, either at home or at one of Denver's accommodating eateries open today (here's a list if you're still looking). We're thankful for the great chefs and their teams who turn out fabulous food on a daily basis across the metro area. Here's a look back at some of the 100 Favorite Dishes for which we're most thankful, along with links to what makes them so wonderful, starting with a seasonal pot pie from a pair of comfort-food specialists.
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.
