The Bolder Life: 5,280 Reasons to Love Denver Restaurant Week



So 5,280 reasons is pretty excessive—and incredibly time consuming for the author; but the fact of the matter is that Denver Restaurant Week starts this Sunday! It’s time to put a game plan together and get serious about making reservations at the participating restaurants that you are dying to indulge at.

If you aren’t familiar with the specific details behind this tasty, budget-friendly event—you better get familiar. Restaurant week embodies all that is good about being a food fanatic for the low price of $52.80 per couple or $26.40 per person. Starting February 25 – March 9th, diners will enjoy multi-course meals composed of regular and specialty menu items brought to you by the creative minds behind many of the most successful eateries in the 303 area code. What’s even better is Restaurant Week is actually two weeks of dining fun! That means that you’ll have plenty of time to eat your way through the participating restaurants list while still leaving time to digest and sleep in between. I’m salivating just thinking about it.

Hundreds of local restaurants are participating in this food fest and a special web page created for the most organized and serious foodie allows diners to find participating restaurants by neighborhood and by cuisine. Do you love, love Italian? Awesome, because these restaurants love making Italian food. Can’t get enough sushi? That’s great, because these restaurants have plenty of sticky rice and raw fish to prepare your favorite rolls. Easy and convenient.

Not a fan of leaving the comfort of the Boulder County bubble? I don’t blame you, it’s nice here– and fortunately, you don’t have to leave the bubble to get in on the Restaurant Week fun. Check out this list of the Boulder County restaurants offering up delicious deals.

Personally—I can’t wait to try the Octopus Carpaccio and Gorgonzola Gnocchi at Arugula. And I’ve been itching to check out John’s Restaurant that has a Black Angus New York Strip Steak on their menu that alone is worth almost as much as the bill for two diners to enjoy a 3-course Restaurant Week meal!

And if you’re feeling adventurous and want to venture outside of Boulder County, check out Freshcraft in downtown Denver. The Sweetbreads will leave you speechless and their huge selection of craft beer will validate the trip alone.
