What are the best new restaurants in Denver?

It's been a while since I've been in town - what are the best new restaurants to try and why? Any favorite menu items I have to try? Would love to know cheaper options as well as more expensive for some nice dinners.

Denver (Colorado)

Ophelia's Electric Soapbox-  Foods very good but atmosphere is REALLY cool.

Biju's Little Curry Shop. Everyone I know won't shut up about the amazing food here... It is on the top of my list... but I have not been yet.

Wurstküche- So yummy and fun place to go with friends or alone (shared seating).

If you are in town Tuesday or Thursday during the summer try Civic Center Conservancy... Food truck heaven! 

Have to add El Chingon to this list (6/18/2015) Amazing modern mexican!

Happy Eating!

Check out South Broadway for new restaurants up and coming, still not really known/trendy yet, Maria Empanada and Adelitas Cocina Y Cantina.  River North Art District is the hip place now many cool bars etc I haven't been yet but RiNo Yacht Club.  Try Tennyson too, Berkleydistrict, Hops & Pie and a good Mexican place a higher price range El Chingon Mexican Bistro


Three sites that may help 

Take some of recs with a grain of salt, but they probably do the most thorough lists in Denver, it's a bit of a hoity toity mag

Thrillist tends to be a bit more down to earth (they have multiple lists)

Old Major is a great farm to table, snout to tail restaurant in Denver. Root Down is a hot spot and great for brunch on the patio overlooking downtown Denver. Linger has a great rooftop bar. Potager is one of my all time favorite restaurants with a beautiful garden in the back and a true neighborhood vibe. beast + bottle on 17th Street gets rave reviews from friends.

Can't go wrong with Comida and Acorn at the The Source if you're in the RiNo area and want a good meal. Syntax Physic Operaon South Broadway does great small plates and cocktails, then turns into an ecelectic venue later in the evening (standup comedy to dance party, depending on the night). Meadowlark Kitchenis probably my absolute favorite new spot though -- incredible burger, fantastic small-plate presentation of fried oysters, and a regularly updated menu of deliciousness. Great drinks too. And, if you can get a table (it's super small), To the Wind Bistrois a gem for dinner on east Colfax, near the Bluebird. For something casual but incredible during lunch, don't miss sandwiches at the Curtis Park Delicatessen (which isn't incredibly new, but is an incredible addition to that area's mid-day offerings).

Also second the votes for Maria Empanadaand Wurstküche those are both fun.
