Best Of 2014: Japanese/Sushi

Jun has won gold in this category almost perennially since 1995, partly because owner Jun Aizu focuses on the freshest fish he can get. He serves Colorado fish when he can, and flies the rest in daily. Aizu opened his first location on Dublin 23 years ago; nine years ago he opened the Centennial location. The menus, concept and specialties of the two restaurants do differ: For example, while both serve sushi, the Dublin location offers ramen noodles made from scratch, and the Centennial location features cooking tables. "My favorite quality in Japanese cuisine is that it's simple, it's natural, and it's fresh without heavy sauces," says Aizu. Any plans for a third location? "Not yet," he says, smiling. — Kendall Kullman
