2. Tante Louise .............................. 9 (out of 10)
Enjoy unequalled pampering at this long-time Denver favorite, featuring classics with a twist, and always something new. Check out the expansive wine list offering more than 625 vintages from $14 to $2000. Yikes! (7/96)

3. Gala Gardens Restaurant .............................. 6 (out of 10)
If you've ever been to any decent restaurant in Kansas, you've been to the Gala - it's a bastion of real culinary America. The ever-packed dining room is a testament to the tremendous, delicious, and highly affordable prime rib. (7/96)

4. Starfish .............................. 8 (out of 10)
Plenty of hits and a few misses from a Cherry Creek North hotspot where it's mighty easy to forget that you're eating at a chain restaurant. (11/95)

5. Napa Cafe .............................. 7 (out of 10)
Cliff Young returns another success. Napa features a tremendous wine list. It's really worth the trip. (1/96)

6. Piatti .............................. 7.5 (out of 10)
Plenty of hits and a few misses from a Cherry Creek North hot spot where it's mighty easy to forget that you're eating at a chain restaurant. (11/95)

7. Pierre's Supper Club .............................. 6 (out of 10)
Nothing fancy, but if catfish is your desire, Pierre's is the place. Warm and wonderful service, too. (11/95)

8. Tuscany .............................. 8.5 (out of 10)
My visits were for breakfast; the rest of the day this often overlooked gem in the Loews Giorgio Hotel rates a 10. In terms of pure atmostphere, this may be my favorite spot in town. (9/95)
