Denver is fanatic about its sports teams – did you know it is the only city in the country to host seven professional teams? But no team draws bigger crowds or more passion than the Broncos, who play their home football games at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
If you're going to the big game, you're probably going to tailgate beforehand (it's a time honored tradition after-all), but should you be in town for a few days, and staying near the stadium, or hungry after the winning touchdown is thrown, there are some great restaurants within a 10-minute taxi ride of the stadium, which is located on the west side of I-25 and not far from some of Denver's trendiest neighborhoods – LoDo is located just across the highway to the east, while LoHI and the Highlands are just a few minutes drive north.
If you're in the mood for a perfectly cooked steak in mod posh environs then head to Guard and Grace, which focuses on 22 different options in three cuts. For New American West cooking, including delectable game and seafood, check out Range in a fantastic space in the historic Colorado National Bank Building, which now houses the just-opened Renaissance Downtown City Center Hotel. It also has a bar with flat screen TVs to view the game, should you not have tickets. While vegetarians will dig the three-course tasting menu at Old Major, which also does excellent meat. So regardless of what you're craving, these 10 restaurants will indulge.
