Not that I need an excuse to go out for dinner, but GOSH do I love it when I have a reason! And that reason is the Visit Denver’s 2014 Denver Restaurant Week. Such a happy time. Such a happy, happy time.
Denver Restaurant Week, taking place February 22-28, was created nine years ago as a way to introduce our fair city’s fabulous eateries to those folks out there who may need a little nudge to leave the comforts of home or the familiarity of the chain restaurant down the street, boasts over 200 fantastic places to wine and dine. For $30 per person or $60 per couple (thank you, Visit Denver, for doing the math for us), restaurants provide a multi-course menu and all you have to do is show up and chew! How great is that?
Want chic in Cherry Creek? Elway’s is on the list. Mouth watering for a meatball? Try Carmine’s on Penn. Feeling French? Ja Ja Bistro off main street in Littleton is tres magnifique.
The list is impressive – everything from the kitschy (Devil’s Food on South Gaylord) to the trendy (True Food in Cherry Creek North) to the classic (Venice in Greenwood Village) is there. Some menus even include wine – and most include dessert – what a country!
Remember that tips and tax are not part of the deal, so while you’re saving a little dough on a pizza from The Saucy Noodle Ristorante on South University, your server is working just as hard (or harder) as ever. For more information, visit (link here) or log on to Open Table to make a reservation. Mangia!
