Ten days in winter set aside for affordable restaurant feasts.
When Denver Restaurant Week was launched more than a decade ago, it was an epic, exhausting 17-day slog for restaurants. Foodies loved the many opportunities for bargain dinners, but a killer for those who prepared and served the meals. In deference to restaurateurs and chefs, this past year’s DRW was split into a summer week and a winter week. The 2015 DRW reverts to a single event — 10 delicious days from Friday, February 20 to Sunday, March 1. It’s still more than a week (including two weekends), and it remains a good value at $30 per person for a prix fixe multi-course dinner.
More than 300 restaurants participated in the 2014 winter DRW and more than 200 in the summer DRW, making this one of the largest culinary celebrations in the nation. The list of participating restaurants and menus are to be announced in mid-January. Keep alert when this happens, and book fast.
