On December 21, 2014, Thrillist published an article on The 18 Best Food Neighborhoods in America. Only one was in Colorado.
Ranked at #18, they named RiNo as the only food neighborhood in Colorado that made the list. Hmmmm….
What fabulous food establishments gave it that distinction?
Crooked Stave – Artisan beer
I’ve visited Crooked Stave – it’s actually a cute little brewery with a well-stocked, inviting little tasting room.
Epic Brewing – Denver is the 2nd location for the Utah-based brewer of craft ales and lagers
Black Shirt Brewing Company – craft beer
Infinite Monkey Theorem – wines
Acorn and Crooked Stave are housed within The Source, an enormous 20,000sqft “artisan food market.” I’ve had a very thorough tour from one of the founders. Quite a concept – artisan food markets like this are an up-and-coming trend.
What do you think? Is RiNo the best food neighborhood in Colorado? And do we really have no food neighborhoods that rank better than #18 in the country? What Colorado neighborhoods belong on this list?
