Denver Area Special Occasion

I'm going to be in the Denver area in a month or so and we're looking to do a special night out. Currently we're looking at Fruition in Denver and Frasca in Boulder. If any Denverites had to choose between the two...where and why? Thanks!

  1. Both are excellent choices, but I think Frasca might feel a bit more "special" - atmosphere and service are considerably more refined, and the wine program is far superior in case you're thinking about treating yourself to a special bottle. Fruition's food is wonderful but it has more of a casual, neighborhood feel while Frasca is a bona fide destination restaurant. Have fun!

    1. re: rcurtism

      Rcurtism nailed the difference, IMHO, but I'll trhow another F-restaurant into the special occasion mix. Boulder's Flagstaff House also has refined food, exceptional service and great views. You can't go wrong w/ any of these three.
