Reader: Book a table at Fruition during Denver Restaurant Week...since it's not participating
Fruition isn't part of Denver Restaurant Week -- but it's an important part of the Denver dining scene.
Only one more day to submit your tip for surviving Denver Restaurant Week, which runs February 25 through March 9. Tomorrow we'll pick the best tip left on our original DRW contest post by a diner, as well as the best tip offered by a restaurant employee, and award the authors of each $52.80 to use as they choose -- ideally, at a restaurant during DRW.
Although maybe not a restauraurant participating in DRW....
In the meantime, some advice from LB:
Here's a tip! Go to Fruition, which doesn't participate. Get a great meal, with great service, while supporting a local business. This will beat any restaurant trying to serve 2-3x their usual volume, at half their typical cost...
It's true that Fruition is not participating -- but then, Fruition is so tiny and so popular it doesn't need any bump from DRW. Other restaurants skipping the annual eating orgay are more surprising: Bittersweet, for example. But close to 300 other restaurants are; find the full list here.
