Chef Alex Figura and the crew at Lower48Kitchen source the majority of their vegetables from local farms and the result is a menu that is representative of the growing food culture in Denver.

West End Tap House is another local spot that focuses on Colorado produced food and drink. Gary Dugan documents their culinary process in a mouthwatering profile of food images.
