The artichoke dip is one of the most popular appetizer menu items of all time. While restaurants usually serve this dish with the same ingredients — artichoke, spinach, cheese — it can be presented in many different ways. Find the dip in a basic glass bowl, bread bowl or hot skillet, or served with slices of soft pita bread or tortilla chips. However it’s presented, artichoke dip will almost always be one of a server’s top suggestions. The following eateries serve up five of the best palate-pleasing dips Denver has to offer.
