The Guide to Getting Away From Denver Restaurant Week

View as Map

Denver Restaurant Week will launch on Saturday, February 22. While participating restaurants attract many diners, there are still those who seek to get away from the $60 dinner-for-two promotion. Why get away? The massive crowds, the manipulated menus which sometimes do not reflect the essence of a restaurant, the stressed-out waitstaff that gets paid less and works more during the promotion, and hard to come-by reservations. So, if you want to get away, here are ten restaurants that will offer an alternative to Denver Restaurant Week. [Scroll all the way to the end of the map for more!]


For more options, check out the Populist, Uncle, Fruition, Beast + Bottle, Luca d'Italia, Frasca Food & Wine, Oak at Fourteenth, TAG Burger Bar, Sushi Den, Corner House, Comida and Pinche Tacos - at both of their respective locations.
