Edge at the Four Seasons is a sure bet for spotting Denver's 1 percenters

Edge at the Four Seasons is a sure bet for spotting Denver's 1 percenters
Mark Manger

When President Barack Obama came to Denver last week, he snubbed the Brown Palace -- which has hosted every president since Teddy Roosevelt except Calvin Coolidge -- for the Four Seasons.

Perhaps our head of state prefers the international amenities and service standards of the high-class luxury hotel chain, which planted a location in Denver a year ago.

When the Four Seasons opened, it came with a restaurant: Edge is a sleek, swanky space that offers an upscale version of Colorado cuisine, giving travelers a chance to sample game and steakhouse fare associated with the Rocky Mountains without ever leaving the confines of the hotel. It also gave suited business types a place to woo clients, hopeful men a spot to romance stiletto-wearing dates, and Denver's 1 percenters a location to wear their furs.

I dined at Edge for this week's review, feasting on a menu by executive chef Simon Purvis that's influenced by his long-time experience with the Four Seasons hotels, as well as his understanding of local cuisine.

How was it? Find out tomorrow when the review is posted here.
