A note from our editor: restaurants enhance the community

According to the Colorado Restaurant Association, more than 75% of the state’s restaurants are independently owned and operated. Though it might be shocking to outsiders, the lack of chain restaurants and franchisers is part of what makes the culinary scene in the Southwest so special. These small businesses provide personalized service in community-oriented spaces.

The array of homegrown coffee shops, cafes, breweries and restaurants contribute to building a stronger economy, as well as a healthy and vibrant community. Mouthwatering menus at locally-owned restaurants are crafted by passionate chefs using innovative techniques and incredible talent. Some of these professionals have world-class training from around the globe. They prepare dishes inspired by international cuisine and share a piece of their culture with our community.
