Favorite Restaurant In Denver?

If you could only pick one...

  1. My favorite is Pint's Pub. The food is good pub grub, but with 250 Whiskys, mostly Scotch, on the menu, who cares about eating? It's definitely my favorite.

    1. I think I'd have to go with Mizuna. Everything I've ever had there has been divine, and the service has been excellent as well. Mmm....lobster mac n' cheese...

        1. Cafe Brazil and Cuba Cuba are my favorites. I've also always considered Le Central a good standby (dinners only, never brunch), as long as I can get a seat on the patio or in one of the back rooms.

          1. Some people are known to sleep around. I am known to eat around. Therefore, I have no single favorite. For fancy, Restaurant Kevin Taylor when it's on its game. For innovative, Vesta Dipping Grill. For Mediaterranean, Rioja. For contemporary mostly American, Fruition. For northern Italian, Panzano. For dim sum, Kings Land (the only one in Denver I've been too, but I really was thrilled). For comfort food, Steuben's. For Colorado tradition, Racine's. For Japanese (not sushi), Domo. For seafood, McCormick's (there's a Jax in Boulder, so that's the one I usually go to).

            1. Right now, O's. If there was only 1 restaurant, would that make O's cheaper?

                  I've been there a few times and find it absolutely charming. Cool boutique wine list, a menu that's at once playful and sophisticated and without affectation. I reviewed it on my blog back in March, but the menu changes regularly. Attached are a couple of pics not from the below post: "shells and cheese," which was squid cut to look like conchiglie in a mascarpone sauce with fried squid on top, and a bite of the signature pot of foie," which I swear winds up tasting like PB & J.

                        I thought it was great. I thought the space was really cute, the service was good and friendly, and the wine and beer list was terrific. I had a homemade mushroom pasta dish that was pretty amazing (the only vegetarian option). My beau had a pork schnitzel that he loathed. It wasn't a good cut of meat and wasn't cooked right, and all his sides were cold. BOO!

                          Huh, that sucks! But better him than you, right? :)

              1. New Saigon on Federal - the best Vietnamese in town... For Thai, Indochine in Parker (not really Denver, I know)...

                1. I love The 9th Door, Nine75, Real de Minas, Star of India and Athenenian. There are SO many to choose from in Denver - always a good thing!
