The 16th annual Denver Restaurant Week is still nearly a month away, but the names of the initial participating restaurants and their special menu items were revealed Wednesday.
The Denver Restaurant Week website posted the names of more than 230 restaurants and their customized multicourse meals at noon on Jan. 22. Denver Restaurant Week 2020 spans Feb. 21-March 1 (yes, that’s 10 days, but this is a case in which you can’t have too much of a good thing).
The event features unique, specially priced meals at restaurants across the Denver metro area. Participating establishments choose from one of three available price points ($25, $35, or $45) and create a multicourse spread at that price.
As Denver Restaurant Week has become a massively popular occasion with locals and tourists alike, the nonprofit trade association Visit Denver offers the following tips for an enjoyable Restaurant Week experience:
- Choose your spend: Each restaurant offers one of the three aforementioned price points, so be sure to check the individual pricing at any restaurants you’re interested in.
- Get inspired by menus: All participating restaurants are listed on the Denver Restaurant Week website by neighborhood, cuisine, and price. New restaurants will be added to the list up to the beginning of Restaurant Week, so check back often for updated participants and menus.
- Make reservations: Tables fill up fast during Restaurant Week, so plan ahead. Try to be flexible regarding seating times and dates, and please cancel any reservations you can’t fulfill as soon as possible.
- Try more than one place: Denver Restaurant Week is a perfect time to revisit favorites and try new hotspots, and with hundreds of participating establishments there is something for every taste.
- Splurge: Many restaurants offer affordable wines, meal additions, and desserts. While getting a great deal on a multicourse meal, treat yourself to some extras that you may otherwise decline.
- Pay it forward: The delicious meals that restaurants prepare for Restaurant Week are also great deals. And as Denver Restaurant Week can be an especially busy time at these establishments, please tip your servers generously.
