We just moved to Denver from NYC, and I would like to take my wife out to a special dinner for our anniversary as well as to celebrate the move. I would appreciate any suggestions along the lines of New American or Italian. Something special and unique. Thanks!

    Welcome to Denver!
    A couple of suggestions in Denver (all downtown or central denver area):
    For a combination of ambience and food my top 2 choices would be:

    Mizuna - kind of New American/Mediterranean
    http://www.mizunadenver.com

    Barolo Grill - Italian (not sure if they have a web site?)303-393-1040

    And maybe Kevin Taylor (just have not been in a while
    )http://www.restaurantkevintaylor.com/

    A few other ideas- (great food- just maybe not as fancy/romantic as you might be looking for

    )

    Luca D'Italia
    http://www.lucadenver.com/

    Cafe Star - new American-
    http://www.cafestardenver.com/

    Rojia more Mediterranean
    http://www.riojadenver.com/

    Duo - more american - cool space, more casual

    Campo - Italian, pretty noisy, in Cherry Creek North. http://www.campodefiori.net/

    Good luck!

      Of those listed thus far... Barolo & Luca d'Italia are fantastic choices. Other good recommendations...

      Chianti (huge wine list)

      my personal favorite...
      Vesta Dipping Grill, totally unique experience and the best food in town
