The Mile High City has become a food lover’s paradise as chefs from around the nation and the globe have picked up their whisks and toques and moved to sunny Denver. The metro area’s list of AAA Four Diamond eateries includes Rioja and Mizuna, along with Frasca in Boulder. But at its heart, the Denver food scene is about community. Snooze, a fabulous breakfast joint, is perennially popular with the Ballpark neighborhood crowd but draws from afar, too. South Pearl has Sushi Den and Session Kitchen, and Linger is among Highlands’ go-to dining spots. This is the West so steak rules here, but not just beef; at The Fort up in Morrison, buffalo tops the menu. There are excellent pre-theater options downtown, including Edge at the Four Seasons Hotel Denver (another Four Diamond recipient) and The Curtis hotel’s casual Corner Office. Lunch runs the gamut from Palettes at the Denver Art Museum with its refined air to the industrial vibe of Comida, one of Denver’s most popular food trucks and now a sit-down restaurant serving stellar Mexican fare in the emerging RiNo District. Truth is, no matter which neighborhood you’re in, there’s a restaurant worthy of your attention.
