It’s almost time for one of our favorite events of the year: Denver Restaurant Week! This year is the 14th annual dining event and will surely top the previous. If you’ve been waiting forever like we have to see who’s joining in on the fun and what deliciousness they have to offer, the wait is over. Menus have been released and are ready for your perusing!
The festivities kick off on February 23rd and run until March 4th, so you want to make sure to take advantage of it. This year’s price points are like they were last year, with each restaurant having a choice of price tiers for their menus. The prices are $25, $35, or $45 per person.
Alongside some of the classics from previous years are a few new entries to DRW. Some new spots on the list are the Bindery, Bar Helix, the Campus Lounge, Concourse Restaurant Moderne, and Red Sauce. Not located specifically in Denver? No need to worry! There are also plenty of participants that are out-of-city so you can enjoy a great meal elsewhere. Overall, there are over 225 restaurants participating this year – bound to be the biggest and best yet!
So, why do we love Denver Restaurant Week? It’s hard not to! Denver’s food scene is booming with so many options, so it can be hard to decide where to go. This is a great way to try some spots that have been on your list without breaking the bank! There’s a huge variety of restaurants participating, so no matter what your taste buds enjoy, you’ll be satisfied. From Blue Moon Brewing Company to Chart House to Hearth and Dram and more, you’ve got endless options. It’s also a great opportunity to get out and explore Denver’s popular neighborhoods such as LoHi, RiNo, Uptown, and DTC. While you’re in the area, check out the shops and sites that line the streets in these awesome areas.
One important part of Denver Restaurant Week is the reservations. Make sure to check out menus ahead of time and don’t hesitate to make reservations. Tables will fill up quickly. If you happen to make a reservation you can’t keep, be sure to call and cancel your reservation so that someone else can fill your spot. The restaurants are extremely busy this time of year, so we all want to make it as easy on the staff as possible. Now get to searching those menus!
