Need local recc's for downtown Denver

I'm coming in from NYC and staying at the Grand Hyatt. We have the high end business dinners planned, but I want to make sure I don't miss any local "must Haves" that make this city special. Whether it's breakfast, lunch, a snack, dessert, or a take out tamale, I would love to know. I don't mind taking a cab. Thanks.

  1. That is so broad as to be unanswerable. Not trying to be a pain, but try browsing the board and reading up on popular spots and then asking more specific questions. It'll be much easier to provide you with good recommendations that way.

      Yes, your question has been asked and answered countless times. It's best you do a board search first so you can get narrow it down for us. You're likely to get more, and more helpful, responses that way.

      Re the Buckhorn below: it's a trip decorwise, but the food isn't great.

    2. The Buckhorn is Denver's oldest restarant. It's a lot of fun. Go and enjoy.

      The Buckhorn Exchange @ 1000 Osage Street, Denver, CO 303 - 534 - 9505.

        2. I would recommend the sweetbreads at Twelve Restauarnt (23rd & Larimer), (they also do a great price fixe dinner Tue-Thur). The duck at Fruition (you may be going there for one of your business dinners), the shawarma at Marrakesh at Colorado & Iliff, and you HAVE to have a meal at Z Cuisine (for nothing else the truffled fries fried in duck fat). Z also has a great absinthe/wine bar next to their bistro.

          1. I highly recommend Back Country Provisions for a casual breakfast or a lunch of very fine sandwiches and salads on Wazee. The selection of sandwiches is very diversified and excellent. The specialty meats is quite long. There's outdoor seating also.
