Denver Restaurant Suggestions for a Short Visit

Never tried Snooze in Denver but I love the one in my town.

Mix & Match Creative Eggs Benedicts - one Bella!Bella! and one Tuscano (phenomenal!)

I like the breakfast pot pie- the homemade rosemary sausage gravy isn't too heavy and the puff pastry is light and flaky (see photos below). Split one pancake to try (ask for flavor of the day).

When staying over in Denver we have ended up at Sam's No 3 for a very decent diner breakfast at a reasonable price (also they are on so if you register your credit cards, a small percentage is earned for your designated charity or organization)

Rioja, TAG, Euclid Hall and many other fine restaurants to choose from for a celebration. After much research I choose Rioja for an anniversary. I'm anxious to try Cholon, Root Down and many more. Can't wait to try the inventions at D Bar Desserts

Check out this Denver Big List:

Enjoy your visit! Happy Eating!

Denver, The Big List

Nice compilation! Agree with the additions from tangerine.

I wouldn't waste time on Taste of Philly (in my town, the meat is dry, blah fries, just boring)while visiting - Hit a food truck or Biker Jim's instead!

Boulder- The Buff
Denver- Snooze (trendy and worth the wait for mix & match eggs benedicts (phenomenal)

Salvadorean- El Chalate (east on Colfax, interesting drive)

9th Door- tapas, cocktails
Thai Food Cart- 16th St Mall
TAG- only twice for happy hour, love the daily mojito specials and small plates
Lola- across I-25 (in lo-hi) several times for happy hour, Mexican haute cuisine and drink specials

Be sure to try tamales, pork green chili and maybe even a taco truck along Federal for those with cars. Fun happy hour spots that I still want to try:
Linger, Delite, The Lobby and Many More! Dessert spots like D Bar Desserts and Little Man Ice Cream always get missed as I never leave room for dessert.
