One of our favorite restaurants and a Cherry Creek North staple. Excellent food for lunch or dinner and a great wine list. Some of our favorites: dip duo, grilled artichoke, macho salad, pork chop, rotisserie chicken, and the ribs! If you are a solo traveler, this is a great place to grab a bite to eat at the bar, if you don't want to sit at a table. Definitely call to make a reservation. This place is busy every day of the week.

Our favorite Indian restaurant in Denver. Everything we've tried here is excellent. Highly recommend the butter chicken and biryani. If you aren't into spicy food, recommend mild seasoning as the max. The medium could be too hot for you.

Just over a half mile walk and they also validate parking. Everything is made from scratch - bowls, grains, greens, and wraps. Recommend the turkey sausage and zucchini lasagna. Lots of great vegetarian options, too. It's near the Cherry Creek shopping center, so you can pop in to the pre/post eating.

Another one of our favorites. Farm to table restaurant with a rotating menu. Great fresh squeezed juices. If you are a soup lover, True Food makes excellent daily soups.

Karin's favorite restaurant in Denver! Farm to table restaurant with a seasonal, rotating menu. When the temperatures are warmer and you enjoy sitting outside, Potager has a quaint outside patio. Make sure to ask about dessert up front, when they are out of something for the night, it's gone. We often order desserts with appetizers to ensure we don't miss out. Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

We like this place for quick to go breakfast burritos. Crowd pleasers if you want to grab something for the road or take back to the apartment. Recommend getting half/half sauce in your breakfast burrito.

Gym

If you're in town for work or looking to burn a few calories. Check out Orange Theory Fitness. I believe the drop in rate class is $18. Make sure you call to reserve your spot in advance. There is a parking garage next to the gym with free class parking.

Sightseeing

Check out who's playing during your stay or maybe there is a Film on the Rocks night. One of the best places to catch a concert. The acoustics are phenomenal. If you do plan to go to a concert, the traffic leaving the venue can be a little long. If you take an uber, try to schedule it in advance. You can also check out Red Rocks during the day, free of charge. Several hiking trails or join the locals running up the stairs for an au natural work out. Views are spectacular.

Industrial-chic, Denver's Urban winery & taproom. Infinite Monkey Theorem offers tours or just pop over to taste some wines. Great patio area and there are typically a few food trucks to order from while you sip your wines. 1st Friday's is the Art / Gallery scene in Denver and usually Infinite Monkey has local artist work on display and sometimes even a silent disco party.

Bakery / Breakfast treats

Craving something sweet, then Voodoo Doughnuts is your place! From classic to specialty donuts such as their Voodoo Doll and Bacon Maple Bar. Bring cash. The last time we were there, they only accepted cash. There is an ATM in the lobby. There is typically a line during the busy hours, so plan ahead so your tummy isn't growling in line.
