Pre-Concert Near Pepsi Center in Denver

ddavis Jul 6, 2010 08:17 AM

Will be attending a concert at the Pepsi Center and would like something good and close for a late lunch or early dinner. I know nothing about Denver and would appreciate any ideas. Thanks in advance.

    Can you give us a hint as to what you're looking for beyond "good and close?"

      "good and close" is pretty vague, isn't it? Sorry about that. We would like a casual place within a couple miles of Pepsi Center. We like Mexican food, seafood, sushi and Italian.

        a couple of miles from the Pepsi Center would include virtually all downtown restaurants (including ones referenced as "LoDo", which stands for lower downtown) and all restaurants in the Highlands. In other words, a huge number of great restaurants ranging from dive bars to fine dining. As for Italian, off the top of my head is Panzano, Osterio Marco, Luca D'Italia, Proto's Pizza. Domo for japanese, Sushi Sasa for sushi, La Loma for basic mexican fare, Lola for more upscale mexican. Just a quick list, there are oodles and oodles of choices within 2 miles.

          Thanks to LurkerDan and Pastajohn. Sounds like another case of "so many restaurants, so little time." Thanks for your suggestions. We are staying at the Hotel Teatro. Any ideas within walking distance?

            Heck, pretty sure there are 2 good restaurants (one casual, one fancy) right in your restaurant! Prima and Restaurant Kevin Taylor.
