Take a bunch of your piggy friends and squeal when the Brazilian Meat Men bring loads of dinner to your table. (9/96)

4. 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)

5. 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)

6. 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)
