Q:I'm very excited that my 93-year-old great aunt may visit. I'd like to find a special "old-lady" kind of place to take her. Since her hearing and eyesight aren't what they used to be, it can't be too dark or loud but it has to be nice.
321 17th St.
Denver, CO 80202
Region: Downtown Denver
A:I'm sure it doesn't like to think of itself as an "old-lady" kind of place, but Ellyngton's at the Brown Palace (321 17th Street, 303-297-3111) is a beautiful restaurant, and your aunt is actually younger than the venerable hotel. (The Brown's Palace Arms restaurant falls in the too-dark category.) Another downtown option is The Broker (821 17th Street, 303-292-5065), which does a wonderful job with deliciously retro fare. And, of course, there's always Tante Louise (4900 East Colfax Avenue, 303-355-4488) -- another elderly aunt -- which offers a combination of old and new French cooking that should meet both your needs.
