Designed in 1963 as a replica of Bent’s Old Fort, this adobe-style, award-winning restaurant is a favorite Denver destination for fine dining. It’s been described as “western food to die for”.
Here’s your opportunity to try Rocky Mountain Oysters, peanut butter stuffed jalapenos (take the whole thing – except the stem – in your mouth at once), buffalo (bison) or game meat. Make reservations and ask for a table with a view of Denver. Most dinner portions are huge. Share appetizers and try to leave room for desert. Pricey but worth the money.
Denverites like this restaurant for special occasions. It’s in the foothills just above the city and makes makes a relaxing end to a day exploring Morrison and Evergreen.
