Denver State Capitol Building
I am coming to Denver and will be visiting the State Capitol Building. Are there any decent restaurants in the area? I am without a car. Thanks!
CityGrille, is right across the street, and has great burgers and onion rings. Otherwise, you are right on the 16th St. Mall, which is a free shuttle that will take you all over downtown, so check the other posts about downtown restaurants (there are way too many good places to cover in a single post).
Take a walk to the Brown Palace Hotel. For a good lunch, the downstairs restaurant/bar called The Captain's Wheel (or something similar) serves an excellent lobster roll. Say hi to Tom Baines--he served the Beatles when they stayed there in 1964.
Nice historic hotel to wander around in if that appeals to you.....
The Capitol Building is between 14th Avenue and Colfax (i.e., 15th). If you walk up to 17th, take a right and walk a few blocks (approx. 5), you have a couple of good options on your left-- Steuben's, which serves very good comfort food and has a nice patio, and Aix, which serves really good French food.
