Denver’s dining scene has taken off. Great restaurants serve everything from locavore to globalist fare. Wine lists offer adventure, and servers are having a ball. The chef-owners who launched this renaissance a decade ago are opening new places, and so are the younger chefs who cut their teeth in the kitchens of standard-bearers that continue their excellence. Here are some of Denver’s best.
Jon & Vinny’s is so popular that the only reservation on a recent Saturday was at 4:30 pm, and even then the house was packed. Angelenos love their pizza, but it’s not just the chorizo-laden El Chaparrito, the pickled jalapeño-and-ricotta White Lightning, or the other creative pies or homemade pastas that lure them to this all-day Italian restaurant on Fairfax Avenue. It’s also Helen’s, a tucked-away retail shop.
It's difficult to exaggerate the beauty of Harrison Topp's orchard. Not far from the town of Paonia on Colorado's Western Slope, Topp farms 6 acres of organic stone fruit—plums, cherries, and newly planted peaches. His family's property stands at 5,800 feet along the north fork of the Gunnison River. The orchard is ringed by majestic mountains under an enormous sky. Pruned so that air and sunlight flow through their branches, Topp's plum trees resemble upside-down brooms.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
