Twelve Best Chef's Counters in Denver

In her review of Brazen Neighborhood Eatery, Gretchen Kurtz extols the chef's counter, where she says tastes are shared "like secrets," food is delivered by cooks who describe it in great detail, and amuse-bouche, a treat usually given to insiders, are the norm. But Brazen isn't the only spot in town where the chef's counter rivals the dining room as prime seating. Here are a dozen of our favorites, listed in alphabetical order -- except for number one, which was named Best Chef's Counter in the Best of Denver 2014. Will it win again?
