Best Of 2014: Overall Restaurant

A hat trick that includes the ultimate label: Best Overall Restaurant in town. "Consistency is one of our hallmarks," says the Famous' general manager Johnathan Shankland. And, he adds, "We're responsive to what people ask for." Lately that's meant more local meat, including Colorado lamb and all-natural sirloin and chuck from Hotchkiss' 7X Beef. Trim from primal cuts, ground daily, composes 60 percent of The Famous' lauded burgers. And chef Brian Sack's menu also sports a more affordable and approachable side, including Famous Fridays, where said burger (or a Red Bird chicken salad) plus a beer or half glass of wine is only $12 at lunch, and comes with live music by the Colorado Springs Conservatory. Also don't miss a superb craft cocktail program by beverage manager Luis Rodriguez. — Matthew Schniper

Bites 2013: Oyster Rockefeller

These are the closest thing to fatty, charred bone marrow that's not, you know, actually bone marrow: A light crust of baked hollandaise sits over molten cheese swirled with spinach, bits of bacon and the licorice bite of Pernod. That there are also oysters at the bottom speaks to God's grace. ($15)

Price: $$$
