2. Bourbon Street Pizzabar & Grill .............................. 7.75 (out of 10)
Bourbon Street has improved on two counts: better menu and better decor. (11/96)

3. Mesquite House .............................. 6 (out of 10)
It's piece-of-swordfish-with-some-parsley time at Mesquite House, a cross between a restaurant and a fast-food operation. Justafiable prices, and you couldn't possibly find more helpful or friendly staff. (11/96)

4. Rodizio Grill .............................. 5 (out of 10)
Take a bunch of your piggy friends and squeal when the Brazilian Meat Men bring loads of dinner to your table. (9/96)

5. 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)

6. 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)

7. 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)
