This swanky spot for French-inspired cuisine from Tom and Diane Coohill has been around since 2011 but it feels as fresh and vibrant today as it did then. A night out here feels like a special occasion even when you’re grabbing a quick bit so their three course $45 menu promises to be a treat. Choose from an onion veloute with poached sunchokes or roasted root vegetable tartin to start, then move on to the lyonnaise salad or wild burgundy snails. Mains include your choice of short ribs, market fish, and root vegetable pavé. And if you want to get really indulgent, they’re also offering some optional add ons for an additional charge like a crab cake appetizer, charcuterie, and desserts like bread pudding with salted caramel.
The Denver outpost of this famed NYC cocktail bar is more than just a bar, but their $45 Restaurant Week menu does include an optional cocktail and wine pairing for $25 which we highly suggest taking advantage of. This menu is set -- there aren’t multiple choices per course so no need for pesky decision making. Just settle in and let them guide you through a meal of tuna tacos, winter greens salad, short ribs, and B-52 cheesecake bars.
