For our year-end issue, Lori Midson reached out to dozens of people in the local food scene -- chefs, restaurateurs, restaurant brokers, wine merchants, farmers -- to ask for their views on Denver dining and their predictions for the year ahead. We'll be sharing their responses for the next week -- but the first installment has already provided plenty of food for thought.

Doug Anderson of Hi Rise mentioned a very particular local green, which inspired this from Jenna:

Great story, Lori! I hope to see more greens on restaurant menus, and the house-pickled veggies and fruits is my favorite dining trend that I'd like to see continue.

As for the pot thing--I dunno if I'm alone in wanting to see at least a few cannabis-infused dishes when A64 gets sorted out, but I would very much like to see some creative uses by local chefs; maybe a nice ravioli with pot pesto, or a cannabutter-rubbed lamb shank. The possibilities are endless.

Watch for the next installment of "Trends Without End" later today on Cafe Society.

Isn't the Jenna who wrote this post (jenna-furrr) actually none other than Jenn Wohletz?

@steveville I hear that Jenna is also extremely attractive, has a sharp, biting wit best displayed at cocktail parties, and she also has excellent taste in winter footwear.

@steveville She wrote the comment, not the post -- and yes, contributors are allowed to comment, too. (I highlighted this one because I want to make sure readers don't miss that trend story...)
