Last night, restaurateur Frank Bonanno closed his four restaurants located at the corner of 7th & Grant to host 5280 Dines, a block party celebrating the 25 Best Restaurants issue of 5280 Magazine. The event was open to the public and featured chefs beyond those listed in the October issue of the magazine. There was food and booze from many local chefs and music from the Colorado Symphony. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Food editor Amanda Faison, present at the festivities, shared with Eater the process through which she selected this year's 25 Best restaurants in the Mile High City.
