Most people know the suburban-like, city-close neighborhood of Ruby Hill for its dazzling park by the same name, which offers Denverites everything from outdoor concerts to a miniature, one-run ski resort. You might also be familiar with this southwest Mile High ‘hood if you’re a fan of Federal Boulevard’s expansive and delicious culinary offerings. Get to know Ruby Hill:
