Here's what the critics had to say about these hot spots

LoHi's Sushi Ronin earned a glowing three star review from 5280 Magazine this month. The eight month old restaurant led by talented chef Corey Baker impressed restaurant critic Scott Mowbray with its fairly priced omakase menu, full of clean textures and flavors, and surprised him pleasantly with more intricate non-traditional rolls like the Godzilla. Small dishes like the hamachi collar and the agedashi tofu got the thumbs up and so did the restaurant's cocktail program. Mowbray's main concern: The sustainability of importing fish from all over the world.

It isn't often that a dedicated review will focus on a food truck park but that is exactly what The Daily Camera did with the Rayback Collective. Critic Clay Fong calls the food and booze community located at 2775 Valmont Road the hottest spot in Boulder. This former home of Rayback Plumbing launched its new life a month ago. There is live music, a bar with local brews, wine, and cider, and up to four food trucks serving a variety of options. Fong shared descriptions for Izote Latin Foods, Farm & Smoke, and Ginger Pig, among others, and concluded that the new venture is likely to become a popular long-term fixture on the local dining scene.
