Another week in the Denver area. Need to get some fancy food to start the week after the long weekend (even though I didn’t really get the Monday off, my client did. So I worked from the hotel. Semi-holiday!)
Tried looking away from the Larimer Square, there is this pretty good review restaurant close to my hotel.
Went in pretty early (my messed up timezone between EST, MT and PST for these two weeks), the restaurant was still empty. Great! I feel like I got it all to myself. :) The service was excellent!
Just like any fancy restaurant, I was greeted with the chef’s special. A mini pie with meat. Very strong taste but very tasty indeed. Came also with a couple of warm breads. I love restaurants that actually care enough even for the breads they serve.
Got my first dish. Hamachi tartar and tuna sashimi. Fresh!
Crab salad. With the honey at the bottom, the hint of sweetness brighten up the dish so much.
Saved room for desserts. My favorite, cheeses! Got great recommendations from the server (and of course I don’t remember the names of the cheeses as usual). Great ending to my dinner.
Oh wait, a free macaroon from the restaurant! That’s a GREAT ending to my dinner!
