Corner the market at Cucina Calore

Cucina Colore 3041 East 3rd Avenue 303-393-6917

This Cherry Creek mainstay is a great place for ladies-who-lunch to see and be seen, and with a new happy hour, you might be seen there more often.

Patio hours: Every day, 11 a.m. to close (11 p.m. or later)

Seats: Two patios, seating fifty altogether

Smoking: No

Patio perks: Umbrellas and a few awnings

Busiest time: When it's nice out and during lunch, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and dinner, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m

Slowest time: Mid-afternoon to early evening, and again after 8 p.m.

Most memorable moment: We get our share of celebrities, but nothing totally unusual. It's just one of the better patios of Denver.
