Winter Food in Downtown Denver

| 1 Comment | 0 TrackBacks
Winter requires a certain kind of food. A friend calls and wonders where she should eat out in Denver, downtown, on this December night. Here are some recommendations:

For casual, burgers, whiskey -- Blake Street Vault. 1526 Blake, its new, but in a refurbished, historic building. Burgers work as winter food, go with red wine, and they have whiskey tasting from 5-7 every Friday and Saturday night.

Locally owned since it was founded in the 80s, Marlowe's says it has some of the best seafood in the city, and it doesn't seem too expensive. Located at 16th and Glenarm, its on the side of downtown closed to Capitol Hill, if walking is the mode of transport.

If you want to go on the other end of downtown 15th and Platte near REI for example: burgers at My Brother's Bar, or Sushi at Sushi Sasha, although you might have a long, long wait on a Saturday night. This is possibly the best sushi in town. A new place on Platte (at the foot of the pedestrian bridge, north of Paris on the P.) says they specialize in food, from burgers to lobsters. Colt & Gray is one of the new best restaurant in 5280 magazine this month.

If you want to run into another friend of ours from Vail, meet her and her new boyfriend at Cuba Cuba. She's going to do some investigating about what one eats and drinks in the winter at a Cuban restaurant. Mojitos?

We went to one of the places recommended in that 5280 link. I'll write an entry about it.
