1 Meal in Denver, CO [Moved from the Midwest Board]

We are going to Denver for a quick weekend getaway for our Anniversary. What is your suggestion for the 1 place we cannot miss while in the Mile High City. Looking for a nice dinner.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

  1. Do you have an idea of the type of food? Or location (central Denver, suburbs, Boulder, etc.,)? Casual or a little more formal?

    1. If I had time to drive a bit and couldn't get a reservation at Frasca (in Boulder), I'd head up to Allenspark (on the way to Estes Park) and dine at the Fawnbrook Inn.

      1. I would say Mizuna. Authentic Italian with a great wine list.

        If you want to do something in the mountains Gold Lake Spa off the peak to peak(between nederland and Estes) is a destination place.

        A short review of wherever you decide to go would be appreciated.


        1. A couple of ideas:

          A little hesitant to recomend because I am not a big game/meat eater but if you are looking for places that could be described as unforgettable and unique to Colorado I would pick The Fort and the Buckhorn Exchange.

          And Flagstaff in Boulder if money is not a concern. Great view.

          There are also a number of great places in Boulder if you feel like taking a short drive.

          I agree with Mizuna. One of my favorites and one of the bets dining bets in Colorado.
