I'm headed to Denver and I'm planning to eat at Rioja (unless someone suggests a great Sunday night prix fixe deal or other option - see question here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/911788 )
Based on Yelp reviews, people LOVE the artichoke pasta, and it does sound great. But, I don't love truffle oil. I don't hate it and wouldn't need them to leave it out or anything. But it's definitely not a positive for me, so if what people are actually LOVING when they're LOVING that dish is the truffle oil, then it's not the dish for me.
Any thoughts - is it the truffle oil that makes that dish? Or would even someone who's not too fond of truffle oil love that dish?
