Reader: Twelve offers a good dining value -- and a great amuse bouche
When Lori Midson went to twelve this week for a birthday celebration, she feasted on everything from beet carpaccio to sweetbreads. But the real star was the amuse bouche, a grilled scallop in a pool of squid ink. It was a generous offering from a generous chef, Jeff Osaka, named Best Chef Ambassador in the Best of Denver 2013 for his work on behalf of the Denver dining scene.
But he also does very good work in his restaurant.

Says Denver Dave:
How cool is that? How many places offer an amuse-bouche in these days where some places expect you to pay for bread and butter? I've always thought that Chef Osaka is a generous plater and Twelve offers a good dining value.
Have you eaten at Twelve lately? What did you think? And where would you pay for bread and butter?
