Seven of the spots below have opened in the past 12 months, and they’re here because, like the stalwarts, each delivers delicious food, thoughtful hospitality, and comfortable surroundings, day in and day out. Whether old guard or new, helmed by a local chef or an import, white-tablecloth or counter-service, these 25 eateries are rising to the challenge of meeting—and exceeding—the evolving expectations of hungry Coloradans.
