Best Of...

Every year I look forward to Westword's 'Best of' Issue. Pretty much everyone I know does, too. The thing is, I generally only enjoy it to hear about new places, but I don't always agree with their choices. So, here's a quick 'best of' from me (I'm sure more will be added as time goes on):

Burger: Cherry Cricket. I love that there are no pre-determined topping combos. Try the cream cheese and jalapenos on a turkey burger. Mmm.

Happy Hour: McCormick's. Twice a night, every night. $1.95 gets you a yummy burger and fries, so you have money left over for their perfectly shaken martinis.

Root Beer: Wynkoop's Tiger Root Beer.

Sushi: Expensive: Sushi Zanmai; Mid-Price: Japango in Boulder, Sonoda's in Denver; Cheap: I Love Sushi

Italian: Panzano

Mexican: El Noa Noa right now, but that changes frequently

American: Sam's No. 3

Late-Night: Pete's, of course

Pizza: Pizzeria Mundo. Try the Nantucket!

That's it for now. I'll add more as I think of things.

The happy hour deal at McCormick's is great. The make the best martinis next door in the Cruise Room.
