Best Of 2015: French

In the past, this award has been shared by all three independently owned and operated La Baguettes. But this year the voters were specific, naming Chestnut Street their favorite. Owner Patrick Garnier says the restaurant has evolved from bakery to a full bistro setup. "We used to be sandwich, soup, kind of light fare, but we've extended into a more full menu," Garnier says in his lovely French accent. He and wife Krystyna have expanded their seafood offerings and now have a full bar and wine list. The hours have changed, too: The bistro is now open from 8 to 8, Tuesday through Saturday. — Amanda Lundgren

Best Of 2015: Bread

When you bake bread, it's all about the flour. And while La Baguette doesn't import French flour, they do use King Arthur flour, milled by a Vermont company for the last 225 years and recommended by Cook's Illustrated for its quality and consistency. The Old Colorado City location, which bakes the bread for all of the La Baguette restaurants in town, still captures le terroir — the taste of the land around us. From basic batards and baguettes to their always-popular raisin-walnut bread. — Griffin Swartzell
