Best Power Lunch Denver 2004 - The Capital Grille
Readers' Choice: The Palm
More deals per square inch are made in this place than anywhere else in the city. One reason, of course, is that the Capital Grille is so crowded. Amid the dark wood, red leather, polished mirrors and trophy heads, business is taken care of, futures are made and broken, and -- through it all -- a fantastic lunch is served. The Grille specializes in steaks, but the menu is also full of classic steakhouse extras. There are burgers, including one made of lobster and crab; half-chickens roasted on the bone; great mashed potatoes; shrimp cocktails; and the best lobster bisque in the city, all doled out by a staff of waitresses, managers and floormen who are second to none. If you consider yourself one of the city's power elite, you'd better put a few Grille lunches in your Blackberry, because that's where business is getting done these days. And if you don't, you might want to spend your next lunch hour polishing up that resumé.
