Denver Restaurant Week

Today marks the first day of Denver Restaurant Week! For the next 10 days Denver’s top restaurants will offer multi-course dinners at three different price points- $25, $35, and $45.

“15 years ago, we created Denver Restaurant Week to combat the misperception that Denver’s fine dining scene left a lot to be desired,” said Richard Scharf, president and CEO of Visit Denver. “Now, our dining scene really speaks for itself and Denver Restaurant Week has become a celebration of our award-winning, nationally recognized culinary community.”

You can view all the participating restaurants and the menus at

☆ Reservations are recommended. Officials recommend to be flexible and try earlier or later bookings or reserve a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.
