Wanted: downtown denver, good eats, good chocolate, good wine.
I'll be coming in to Denver on Thursday, staying at the Hyatt by the Convention Center.
I'd like to surprise my sweetie who is coming in later in the evening with a nice bottle of Champagne, and some spectacular chocolates.
Can any of you chowhounds point me towards a good wine shop, and a good chocolate shop?
Also, we have one free night, Friday, and would love dinner recommendations. We're both foodies. Rioja and Table 6 are on our radar. Any other good suggestions? We prefer more ethnic foods over standard American fare.
For wine downtown wines off wynkoop near the Tattered Cover in LODO http://www.winesoffwynkoop.com/ always seemed helpful. Near downtown on Colfax is the huge Argonaut which often has the best selection and proces. For Chocolate, just west of Downtown is a retail location for Wen Chocolates https://www.wenchocolates.com/retail.php, Very good and I'm very pro chocolate. Rocky mountain chocolate factory is found near Writer's square but for something different, go with Wen.
I'm sure many others will give some dinner recs if you get a bit more specific about what kinds of ethnic you're looking for. Lots of options.
