Imperial Chinese Restaurant

Man cannot live on soy paste and pig intestines alone. Although the Imperial's dining room is red-dragon-and-white-tablecloth elegant, it attracts a casual crowd of diners looking for the tame thrills that only Chinese food done Colorado-style can provide. All of the American-Chinese favorites are represented -- the sesame chickens, sweet-and-sour porks and mu shu everything -- and they're all executed in exemplary (if unsurprising) fashion. For those in search of a bigger rush, the kitchen also offers higher-end seafood and a great Peking duck.
