Vesta Takes 2 Westword 'Best of Denver 2017' Awards!

The 2017 edition of Westword's 'Best of Denver' hit newsstands this week. We couldn't be more thrilled to have received both Reader's Choice and Editor's Choice recognition...

Along with the Reader's Choice Award for Best Wine Bar, Vesta received one of the highly sought-after, unique Editor's Choice awards: Best Seafood Dish in a Non-Seafood Restaurant. [Link]

The award winning item? Chef Nicholas Kayser's ode to the classic seafood stew from San Francisco, Cioppino. Or, as it's known at Vesta, Lobster Cioppino, to indicate the portion of lobster tail that awaits guests in each bowl.

With so many new restaurants in the Denver area, the local food press have never had so much great food to review and report on. So, we took it as a huuuuge compliment when DiningOut, 5280, Westword, Eater, 303 Magazine, and the Denver Post all had high marks for Vesta's first menu under new Executive Chef, Nicholas Kayser.
