More than 50 Denver restaurants and bars convened downtown at the Garner Galleria last Thursday to serve up bites of their best dishes and batched cocktails. Veterans of Denver’s dining scene included Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar shucking oysters, Euclid Hall with house-made sausages and Pinche Tacos with a lamb crudo tostada. Newcomers such as the Way Back with a trout rillette, GQue serving fall-off-the-bone ribs and Lucky Cat with General Guard’s chicken. With all the sweet and savory dishes to sample, there wasn’t an empty plate or glass at the Big Eat.
