Lakewood CO suggestions

Otherwise known as "Save me from the Blue Moose Cantina"

I'm coming to Lakewood on a business trip. The locals all want to drag me to the Blue Moose Cantina which serves wretched Mexican food + Moose Milk.

I need good alternatives to suggest. Ideas?

Any cuisine, any price level, I really just want good food. If they don't want to go, tough.

      Thanks! I'll try to get them to broaden horizons.

    2. Uh, it's Moose Hill Cantina. I like 240 Union. The strip where it is located is undergoing a facelift but I think it's still open. It is definitely more "fine dining" and less "local". You can check out the menu on their website.

        Thanks! I've had many good meals at 240 Union over the years. They do a summer watermelon and goat cheese stacked salad that's really great.
