Back to the Judges


Jeff Suskin co-founded DiningOut Magazine with Josh Dinar in 1998 and the two have been business partners and friends since that time, sharing in a passion for everything the restaurant industry has to offer. Jeff is a founding partner in Boulder’s wildly successful T/ACO restaurant and helped to open popular concepts H|Burger and Jet Hotel, both of which have since sold. An expert at event planning and festival logistics, Jeff is the driving force behind the wildly popular annual events, Top Taco and Chicken Fight, each of which bring together 50+ restaurants, 100+ beverage brands, and upwards of 7000 attendees. Jeff was also instrumental in organizing the inaugural Velorama, a successful weekend-long concert series, bike race and food festival that drew crowds of nearly 20,000 people per day. Jeff is deeply committed to community as an active volunteer and mentor and is one of the most well-respected personalities in Denver hospitality.
