Reader: About Time Those Eastern Snobs Realized You Can Eat Well Between the Coasts
Home of two of the best restaurants in the world, according to Travel + Leisure.
All aboard for destination eating at Union Station. When the development partners started planning what to put inside the renovated station, they envisioned a place frequented not just by visitors, but by locals. And they succeeded: Union Station has become a go-to spot for Denver diners, and we named it the Best New Restaurant Neighborhood in our Best of Denver 2015 edition. Now Travel + Leisure has hopped on board; the magazine includes two of Union Station's restaurants in its current list of the nine best train-station restaurants in the world. Both Stoic & Genuine and Mercantile Dining & Provision get the nod. Says Joe:
About time those Eastern snobs realized that you can eat well between the Coasts. We've had world-class dining for years in Denver; we're not just Rocky Mountain oysters and craft beer (although there's nothing wrong with craft beer). Mercantile is my favorite restaurant in town — and it doesn't serve bull's balls!
