Calhoun: Wake-Up Call

What's the Best New Restaurant in Denver?

Want to be the first to read about Denver's Best New Restaurant?

Sign up for Cafe Bites, our weekly dining newsletter, right here. Every Tuesday night, Cafe Bites serves up a heaping helping of restaurant scoops. And tonight, it will reveal which restaurant will be named the Best New Restaurant in the Best of Denver 2010, which hits the streets (and this website) tomorrow afternoon. The competition is fierce; more good restaurants opened in 2009 than we can remember in any other year since we started the Best of Denver back in 1984. Close to twenty restaurants are in the running for this year's prize.

Last year, Bones -- Frank Bonanno's great noodle bar at 701 Grant Street -- got the nod for Best New Restaurant in the Best of Denver 2009.
