Enjoy Denver Restaurant Week

Cheap denver hotels
By Kate Schwartz

Travel to Denver in February and experience seven days of culinary excellence. February 21-27 is Denver Restaurant Week, and this year, 198 of Denver’s finest restaurants are serving up a taste of mile-high cuisine. With multi-course dinners at a fixed price of $26.40 per person (not including tax and tip), you can eat 5-star meals without paying 5-star prices.

Plan your travel around Denver Restaurant Week and let food be your guide. Visit Denver’s “LoDo” neighborhood and try Corridor 44. For $26.50 you can begin with lemongrass seared diver scallop salad with fennel, ruby grapefruit and baby mâche; followed by “44” surf 'n turf plate with herb crusted filet mignon & grilled white shrimp; and if you have room, petite chocolate truffles. If you don’t feel like trying to catch a cab home, book a cheap Denver hotel room at the Hotel Teatro and enjoy a short two-block walk.

Travel to Denver’s Capital Hill neighborhood and check out Mizuna. For the same low price as Corridor 44, you can try the unique taste of this American-style, French infusion cuisine. Chefs at Mizuna are famous for altering their menu monthly to incorporate fresh, seasonal ingredients. For Denver Restaurant Week, the fixed-price dinner begins with chestnut cavatelli braised veal with wild mushrooms, and is followed by tilefish crispy calamari, jasmine rice and edamame with a Thai-lobster reduction. For desert, enjoy warm valrhona chocolate cake with macadamia nut brittle and malted ice cream.

From sushi to steak, Denver Restaurant Week is sure to please your palate. Pair a delicious meal with a cheap Denver hotel and create the perfect Denver vacation. February is right around the corner, so make sure to make your travel and restaurant reservations today.
