Best New Restaurant
Fifteen years ago, if someone had said the city’s best new restaurant was a ramen shop, you might’ve asked, “What’s a ramen shop?” But we’re living in a post-Momofuku era, where the virtues of minimalist decor, cloudy broth and curly noodles are commonly extolled, so today most Denver diners would shake their heads knowingly and reply, “I know, isn’t Uncle terrific?” Even before you’ve pushed back from the bustling counter, belly full of steamed buns with avocado and mint, crispy Brussels sprouts, spicy chicken ramen and pear cider, you’re contemplating your return to Tommy Lee’s breakout hit. Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait longer than you’d like: Uncle isn’t open for lunch, which might be the only thing we don’t like about the place. Lee’s idea may not be new, but his execution is superb at Uncle, with consistently excellent service and food.
