|LaLa's Artista Pizza|
LaLa's Wine Bar & Pizzeria- great, creative pizzas. The anchoviest-Caesar salad dressing I've ever eaten, but in a good way. Nice, neighborhoody-feel. Would be an awesome place to enjoy a happy hour drink or three, al fresco.
Caffe Sanora- we ate breakfast here-- right across the street from our hotel. Very friendly service; amazing homemade sundried tomato & asparagus quiche. In fact, since eating it, I've been on a major quiche-kick...made 7 in the past week! (5 were to give as end-of-the-year gifts to Jones' teachers). A decidedly local and hippie-ish place (all organic); I talked with a local mom about her 13-month-olds' use of sign language over breakfast--only in Denver!
Las Margaritas- Pretty heavy stuff for a lunch, but it serves authentic Mexican food. Since it was a working lunch, I didn't indulge in a Margarita, but hear they are good. The salsa was amazing. Wish I had brought some home.
|Popcorn and Cava at Linger|
Linger- The "trendiest" of the spots we ate on the trip, but still, with a down-to-earth and friendly feel. Popcorn is the gratis tablefare, differently-spiced each night. The view of the city is fantastic. We sat right by the "open wall" and had some awesome small plates.

All-in-all, not a bad list of restaurants in Denver, considering we were only there 48 hours and we worked most of it!
Oh, and a fun tidbit about Denver, they ID everyone. Seriously, everywhere I ordered a drink I was carded. And it was awesome.
