Dining in Denver

Denver has more than 2,000 restaurants serving all varieties of cuisine.
Area specialties include Rocky Mountain Trout, fresh Colorado beef, and lamb (Colorado is the fourth largest producer of lamb in the U.S.).

Another popular local dish is buffalo. High in protein, lower in fat, calories and cholesterol than chicken, buffalo is gaining popularity among health conscious diners and is offered at numerous restaurants in Denver. Denver has experienced a renaissance in its dining options, offering unique, flavorful cuisines prepared by some of today’s hottest chefs. From Bryan Moscatello and Adega to Richard Sandoval and Tamayo, Denver is gaining a national reputation for its delectable cuisine.

Local residents also enjoy Mexican and Southwestern dishes, served at dozens of local neighborhood pubs and taverns.

Beer Brewing Capital:

Colorado produces more beer than any other state. Besides the huge breweries of Coors and Anheuser Busch, the Denver area is filled with micro breweries and brew pubs, all within walking distance of each other in downtown Denver. A brew pub is a restaurant that brews the beer right on the premises and serves beer that is generally not found anywhere else.
On any given day, there are fifty beers available in Denver at small brew pubs that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Each brew pub offers tours and four ounce samplers that let you taste the variety of ales, porters, stouts and lagers that they produce. While some of the brew pubs produce what is commonly thought of as "American" style lagers, most of the beers made are more traditional European and British style ales.
