A quick search found this thread for me, and I think my question fits here.

I've lived all over the country, and some cities/states have their own unique cuisine. As a native NY'er, obviously the pizza, dogs & bagels come to mind. Living in Charleston SC introduced me to the low-country cuisine. Florida really didn't have much of it's own, but with the large Hispanic population there was a lot of Cuban, Mexican, Colombian and other foods to choose from. Raleigh NC has BBQ, which to be honest I really dislike. Too much vinegar for my taste!

This leads me into my question. Does Colorado have a "style" or some kind of signature food I should look for on a visit? If so, where's a good place to try?

Not really. However, you know, in my neck of the woods (western colorado), hunting is a popular pastime, so there are things like bull's testicles and other odd meats that people sometimes indulge in.

Some parts of Colorado, like southern CO, Pueblo and Denver have the Hispanic influence with associated foods.

My coworker talks about a restaurant that used to serve all-you-can-eat fried bull's testicles every Friday night. These are known locally as Rocky Mountain Oysters.

Crepes 'n Crepes seems great for breakfast. They have two locations one in Cherry Creek and the other in downtown, on the 16th street mall in Writer's Square. They have a good variety of sweet and savory crepes, plenty of good coffee and soups too. It is a french restaurant, not too pricey. The downtown location has a relaxed vibe, a nice little patio outside and has been around for a few years now.

Watercourse on 17th @ Emerson is a great vegetarian/vegan place, if you like that kind of food. Very popular and I recommend the coconut-curry soup. Have had to turn back many a time because of 20-plus minute wait time for a table for lunch.
