Who says you have to wait until late February for the infamous $52.80 Denver Restaurant Week? Some of Denver’s top restaurants are offering this same deal during the summer! Why $52.80? Denver is known as the Mile High City with an altitude of 5,280 feet above sea level. You may have to dine during the week, but considering the amount of cash you would have to lay out otherwise…a Monday night dinner date is not the end of the world.Â If you are like me and frugality is not something developed during this very tough economic time, this summertime offer is a welcome addition to the usual year-round coupons and discount deals.
As with the traditional Denver Restaurant Week, the menus offered are prix fixe, which means for a set price you can dine on a limited-selection, multi-course meal. This allows you to enjoy the best a restaurant has to offer without the worry and indigestion of an outrageously high bill. Long popular in Europe, more and more fine dining establishments are offering prix fixe menus to lure in new customers. So, what top name restaurants are participating? Below are just a few and their individual offerings.
Vesta Dipping Grill, a fondue/dipping sauce, perennial “Best Of Denver”,Â is offering a deal available Monday nights only, but wine pairings are available for an additional $13 per person.
