I make no secret that I pretty much plan all of my travel around meals, and then think about things like shopping and touristing only in between. Since we were visiting two of our favorite people in Denver (Mark's brother Jeff and my should-be-sister Jenn), meals had to fall to priority #2, but we still ate extremely well during the trip. It may not be considered a top foodie city, but there is a lot to make a foodie happy in Denver (see my last trip for further evidence if you are not convinced).
Some of the highlights...
Brunch at The Kitchen -- my fave -- in Boulder (cafe mocha, curry chicken salad, maple pecan French toast before and after)
Sushi lunch back in Denver... the yellowtail collar ($5!) and soft-shell crab ($6!) in particular were fantastic (jalapeno yellowtail, soft-shell crab, yellowtail collar)
Roasted duck with cherries at Argyll in Cherry Creek (light was too low to capture everything)
Sunday brunch at Second Home in the Cherry Creek Marriott... comes with a full newspaper (donut holes with many dipping sauces, crab eggs Benedict, breakfast burrito, amazing maple bacon with side of potatoes... sadly, the chicken and waffles would have taken 25 minutes, and I'd already had French toast the day before)
It may have been an all-you-can-eat place, but love that retro marquis
Coming back down to Earth... Denver quiche (crustless... wha??) at the airport
