Twelve turns one today

Happy birthday to Twelve, which brought fine dining to a less-than-fine location at 2233 Larimer Street last fall, but has survived that first tough year.

And tonight, chef/owner Jeff Osaka will celebrate his restaurant's first birthday by gifting diners with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and an amuse-bouche to "toast the special evening." After that, diners are on their own, choosing from the new November menu (the board changes every month, giving the restaurant twelve menus a year -- and an explanation for its name). Entrees this round include Colorado striped bass with fennel, pearl onion and Manila clams in a saffron broth; butternut squash ravioli with pinenuts, spinach and sage-brown butter; and slow-braised beef shoulder "a la Coq au Vin."

Since this is Wednesday, there's also a $35 prix fixe dinner option, offered Tuesday-Thursday at Twelve.

A toast to Twelve, for staying the course and making that stretch of Larimer a much finer place.
