Root Down, in Denver's Highlands neighborhood, won't compromise on its dedication to local and sustainable goods and its philosophy that ranching, farming and fishing should be humane and not harm the planet. Almost everything is certified organic. What doesn't come from the restaurant's gardens is sourced from a group of local farms, ranches and food artisans. "The term farm-to-table began as a small, powerful movement toward awareness of our food supply," says founding culinary director Daniel Asher. "Unfortunately, it has become diluted and casually tossed around as a clever and profitable marketing term. The foundation of the Edible Beats group (Root Down, Linger, Root Down DIA and Ophelia's) was based upon principles of environmental ethics that define every decision we make, from what type of paint to use on the walls to what we package our guest's leftovers in." As for the full-range menu, it absolutely hits the mark.

- Best for Farm to Table Because: All animal proteins are certified humane. All bar straws and to-go pieces are compostable. All seafood is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council.
