Denver Restaurant Week Feb. 26-March 6 adds new eateries (Full List Inside)

 

There are 18 restaurants that will be participating for the first time in the Food extravaganza known as Denver Restaurant Week — including some new eateries that have just recently opened.

The 10-day event, which starts Feb. 26, features multi-course dinners that cost $30 per person.

“Every year we get new participants who look to Denver Restaurant Week to give their establishment a shot in the arm at a traditionally slow time of year, and who also see it as a way to get exposure to a new group of customers who might come back time and again,” said Justin Bresler, vice president of marketing and business Development for Visit Denver.

 

Aloy Modern Thai in Denver’s Ballpark neighborhood and Farmer Girl in Lafayette, which both opened this month, have joined the 230 restaurants that have registered to participate.

Bradford Heap’s new seafood restaurant in Boulder, Wild Standard, is also on the list of new eateries, along with Justin Cucci’s Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox and Chris Sargent’s Telegraph Bistro and Bar.

Other new places to try include Del Frisco’s Grille, Blue Island Oyster Bar, Brik on York, Bacon Social House, Southern Hospitality Park Meadowsand the Fire Lounge at the downtown Art Hotel, which soon will debut its new spring menu.

“For the busiest restaurants, Denver Restaurant Week is like New Year’s Eve for 10 straight nights,” said restaurant consultant John Imbergamo. “Honor your reservations or cancel them, tip generously and maybe have a little more patience than you would if paying full price.”
