Readers' Choice: Cru: A Wine Bar
Patrick Dupays already operated one of the city's best French restaurants, Z Cuisine, so when he announced that he'd picked up a second spot just two doors down from his original restaurant and was planning on turning it into a wine bar, Denver's francophiles were (literally) beside themselves with joy. And with good reason, too, because Z Cuisine À Côté stands as its own destination — a warm, beautiful tribute to the Parisian wine-bar culture of the 1900s, offering plenty of wines by the glass, cheeses, charcuterie and a selection of small plates (like frisée aux lardons, petit chèvre and asparagus quiche, and onion soup gratinée) made to the same high standards of rustic Frenchiness exemplified by Dupays's original restaurant. From A to Z, this is one class act.

I much prefer Z Cusine over Cru Wine Bar. The food and wine are fabulous and (for those who don't live downtown) parking in the Highlands neighborhood is more convenient. Z Cuisine Bistrot and A Cote offer the best french dining experience in Denver!


Z Cuisine is a delightful spot, but a little out of the way to truly enjoy several glasses of wine. I prefer Cru Wine Bar in Larimer Square because it is within walking distance of everything downtown, including my apt. In addition, I usually take part in their Wednesday night tastings. Beautiful spot and it has my vote.
