Denver Restaurant Week menus unveiled. Here are our picks.
Driving the news: Menus are now live for the culinary celebration, which runs March 3-12 and features roughly 180 restaurants.
- Each eatery has created a special, multi-course meal with price tags ranging from $25-$45.
The Axios Denver team rounded up some recommendations to help you narrow the lengthy list.
At the $25 level:
- Alayna's pick: Bang Up to the Elephant. Cold weather calls for curry — which is why I'm eyeing the creamy coconut curry at this vegan, Caribbean-inspired restaurant. Its tropical atmosphere also makes for a great escape from the snow.
- Esteban's pick: Blanco Cocina + Cantina. This place is very chill, and I think the braised chicken burrito would go really well with the Paloma rose cocktail. Also: You gotta try the flan.
- John's pick: Culinary Dropout. I'm eager to try this relatively new spot, and its comfort food menu, in the revitalized Ninth and Co. development.
- Alayna's pick: Ace Eat Serve. As a pescatarian, the seafood panzanella sold me. The crispy red lentil cakes and Mandarin orange chocolate crémeux sound scrumptious too.
- Esteban's pick: Maine Shack. A Connecticut lobster roll this far from Long Island Sound? Yes, please.
- John's pick: Cattivella. The wood-fired Italian is an easy draw, and the roasted butternut squash gnocchi and classic porchetta hit the seasonal spot.
- Alayna's pick: The Greenwich. This lively spot is one of my go-tos — and the pan-roasted monkfish with melted leeks is just another reason I'll be returning.
- Esteban's pick: El Five. I've had friends recommend this place so many times after I mention how much I like tapas. Now might be the time to finally give it a go.
- John's pick: Apple Blossom. This top Denver restaurant is on my must-visit list, and the creative bite of duck gumbo on the menu looks like a tasty introduction.
