Reader: Not All Kids Suck at Restaurants!

Mark Manger
Sassafras is a good choice for both kids and adults.
Gretchen Kurtz just reviewed Chop Shop Casual Urban Eatery, a new spot on East Colfax Avenue that's a great place to grab a fast, grown-up meal -- but also a good spot to take the kids. And while pizza and burger joints are often the go-to choices for family meals, Chop Shop isn't the only spot in town where both adults and children can enjoy a meal; Kurtz suggested four more family-friendly restaurants here. For some readers, that list became a guide of what to ignore.

Reader: You Must Not Have Taste Buds If You Think Casa Bonita's Food Is Okay

Casa Bonita is a local landmark that celebrated its fortieth birthday this year.

Soup is good food: Tonkotsu at Sakura House.
On a very cold day last week, Mark Antonation used his noodle and served up a story on five different kinds of ramen -- and where to find them in Denver. The response was heated: Denverites love their ramen, and dished out plenty of opinions on where to find it in town.

Reader: I Travel All Over, and Denver Is One of My Favorite Cities for Eating

You have to break a few eggs to expand our dining rep beyond the Denver omelette.
Last week Mark Antonation served up Ten Things Visitors Should Know About the Denver Dining Scene, including the crucial fact that this city's culinary contributions go far beyond the Denver omelette. Not only does Denver have great craft beer and bison, he points out, but it also has good very good seafood for a landlocked town, an active, diverse ethnic scene -- and a booming business in homegrown, fast-casual chains. But that didn't satisfy one reader, who branded the Denver dining situation "atrocious."

Reader: Colorado Has Some of the Worst Mexican Food I've Ever Tried

The homegrown chain got its start in Boulder almost twenty years ago, around the time that Qdoba launched and a few years after Chipotle made its debut on East Evans. The controversy over the Illegal Pete's name has been focused on words and their meaning. But one reader is more concerned with what lands on his plate.
