What kind of group is gathering and what's the purpose? A personal celebration? A networking business lunch? A gathering of friends just because? Whatever it is, there's a restaurant to accommodate you. If you're working with a more modest budget, Cart-Driver might be a good choice in its cozy shipping-container space. If elegance and international cuisine are the goal, there's Bistro Vendome and Tavernetta, and if you have a group of steak lovers you can't do better than Guard and Grace or Ocean Prime. Urban Farmer, Panzano and 15/Fifty all put local and Colorado menu items front and center, along with sustainability. The fact is, whether you're a group of 12 or 300, you can find a Denver restaurant that meets your needs in terms of space and exceeds your expectations in terms of food, drink and service. That's the kind of city Denver has become. You will expand your options by booking as far ahead as possible, and if splitting the check among the diners is a preference, ask about that in advance. Then sit back and enjoy the ambience, the food and the company.
