'From food truck to a stall at Avanti to their first brick and mortar location on Denver’s Pearl Street, the husband and wife team Igor and Beckie Panasewicz have been sharing Venezsualan culture with the city one arepa at a time since 2010. These (totally gluten-free) corn flatbreads are split stuffed with a variety of ingredients for a super flavorful and hearty meal. You can’t go wrong with any option but if this is your first arepa experience, a good place to start is the Pabellon, the national dish of Venezuela which comes filled with stewed beef, black beans, sweet plantains, and cheese.

'For nearly 40 years, the Kizaki brothers have been bringing the freshest seafood to Denver on what’s known as the “Den Corner” on Pearl Street where their trio of restaurants, Sushi Den, Izakaya Den, and Ottoto, are located. They were one of the first sushi restaurants in the US to fly in fish directly from Japan and they continue to do that today. So while you can’t go wrong with literally anything on the menu, their crispy tuna has earned iconic dish status thanks to decades of impeccable execution and the highest quality product. Crispy tempura sushi rice topped with spicy tuna avocado, jalapeno, tobiko, and sweet sauce. Does it get much better? The simple answer is, nope.

'Decadence on a plate. That’s what you’ll get when you order this dish with a cult following from restaurateur Frank Bonnano’s eatery that excels at using classic French techniques to produce some of the finest eats in town. It starts simply enough, with elbow mac, but the similarity to the out-of-a-box stuff ends there. The noodles are bathed in a creamy beurre blanc and rich mascarpone cheese with tender poached lobster and a swipe of paprika-infused lobster oil to really put the dish over the edge of indulgent perfection.

'Denver’s got a lot of great BBQ these days but Coy and Rachel Webb, the owners of Roaming Buffalo, have been working hard since opening in 2015 to define Colorado barbecue. Exhibit A: the (rightfully) popular slabs of bison back ribs. Slow-smoked and locally raised, these ribs show off the best of the state’s culinary potential. You could hit ‘em with a dose of their house made sauce (available in traditional and spicy), but they don’t need it. You can get them by the rack, half rack, or by the bone, but whatever you do, pair them with one (or two… ) of their Colorado-inspired sides like the rich and creamy andouille and roasted corn grits or the smoked poblano mac and cheese.

'Denver’s former culinary reputation as a steakhouse town lives on at this mid century throwback that’s been serving up classic fare off Colfax since 1958. The retro vibes remain totally intact, with its sunken bar and strong martinis. Their signature item, boasted about right on the sign out front, is the sugar steak. Their house made, sugar-heavy rub caramelized on the grill—just don’t try to order your sugar steak well done. This preparation is only available on marbled cuts (the ribeye or NY strip) prepared rare or medium rare. Follow these rules for a must try carnivorous Denver experience.

'For a decade, Chef/owner Lon Symensma has been serving up his take on Asian cuisine using French techniques at the original Cholon location in downtown Denver. This year, he opened a second location in the newly renamed Central Park neighborhood so now you’ve got double the options when your dumpling cravings hit. But these are definitely not traditional soup dumplings. Instead, with a bite into the pleated dough, you’ll get a mouthful of rich sherry-infused broth, sweet caramelized onions, and melted Gruyère cheese.

Mount Evans Scenic Byway, the highest paved road in North America, climbs 9,000 feet from Denver, passing through five life zones en route to the 14,264-foot high summit. This is one of Colorado's 54 fourteeners (peaks that climb to 14,000 feet and above), and one of only two in the nation that you can drive up. Stop at Echo Lake along the way for hiking trails, fishing, picnic tables and an unusual eight-sided log cabin restaurant. From I-70 take Exit 240 and then Colorado Hwy. 103 to Echo Lake. At timberline, Denver Botanic Gardens maintains a trail that winds through wildflowers. Due to snow, the Mount Evans Highway is generally open to the top only between Memorial Day and Labor Day. ***Please check with local businesses and attractions individually before you venture out for the latest COVID-19-related policy updates and hours of operation.*** https://www.denver.org/things-to-do/denver-attractions/must-see-denver/
