Top Rated Restaurants
Though there are only nine restaurants in the Denver-Boulder area with Zagat food scores of 28 and above, there are 20 restaurants that make the cut across the state. We've got celebrity chefs (Nobu Matsuhisa in Aspen and Vail), luxury destination dining (Beaver Creek's Splendido at the Chateau), but also hidden gems like Boulder izakaya Amu and Indian vegetarian specialist Masalaa in Aurora. Culinary diversity isn't a coastal privilege anymore.
The city has a grand total of 18 restaurants with Zagat food scores of 28 and above. In terms of price, geography and cuisine, they are all over the map - from Downtown (Il Terrazzo Carmine and Shiro's) to Capitol Hill (Spinasse); from splurge-only spots (Canlis) to Tat's Deli and Paseo, wildly popular sandwich shops where the tab is typically under $20. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that diversity is a reflection of the joyful of the 12th Man spirit currently raging at a fever pitch across the city.
The Verdict: Based on the stats, it's clear: The Seahawks win this one - and beat the spread.
