It's been a banner year for restaurants all around—the Denver area has seen dozens of restaurants open. Of these, red-hot Rioja and fabulous Frasca have dominated the spotlight, setting the bar high for all newcomers. In fact, these two superstars vaulted right out of the "new kids" list onto our best-of-the-best crib sheet. But that's not to say there isn't a host of new spots whose praises we can't wait to sing. Our critics hit dozens of the hottest contenders, cleaned their plates, and came away with a sampling of the city's best new eateries to open since our last Best New Restaurants issue, 14 months ago. Allow us to help you move these spots onto your to-dine list.
