First-ever summer version of DRW August 23 to 29.
Each of the first nine Denver Restaurant Weeks ran for 17 days in mid-winter. They were tough on restaurants and dicey for diners, who often didn’t care to chance treacherous roads. The 10th annual DRW is divided into two weeks, one in winter and one coming up in a couple of days, August 23 and continue through the 29th. No excuses, folks. No excuses. Also, summer includes the option outdoor dining and variety of fresh, local produce that is now in season.
Menus are list on the DRW site by cuisine and neighborhood, which reaches beyond Denver’s city limits. Some are already at capacity, of course, but others have availability. These include some that are participating for the first time:
- Ambli Gourmet Eatery
- Argyll Whisky Beer
- Happy Sumo at the Orchard Town Center
- La Cour Bistro and Art Bar
- Lower48 Kitchen
- Luca d’Italia
- Morton’s The Steakhouse
