Unmatched Meals

September 1995
Our thir annual roundup of Denver restaurant scene includes old favorites, new upstarts, places that deserve a swift kick in the butt, and a whole lot more.


In a town where the mouths spend as much time talking about restaurants as eating in them, these are the places you'll hear about the most.

1. Chipotle Mexican Grill
The size, the price, and the decor all hit the spot.

2. Mel's Bar & Grill
It keeps getting better! Don't miss the live piano music.

3. Denver ChopHouse & Brewery
They've set a new standard for restaurant design in Denver.

4. Chinook Tavern
Big bucks went into this place. And every dollar was well-spent.
