Chef Troy Guard, who became a household name in Denver when he opened TAG in Larimer Square in 2009, has been running fast since late 2013, when he opened Los Chingones and the now-shuttered Sugarmill just a few months before Guard and Grace made its debut. The "modern steakhouse" on the ground floor of a rehabbed high-rise downtown is lovely -- and massive. Tall windows frame cityscapes and bathe the bar and lounge, situated closest to the door, with natural light. If you come for cocktails and to cheer on a team, either after work or because you’ve walked over from the Marriott, this is where you’re likely to stay, perched on gray cubes and stools to enjoy selections from a menu of starters as sprawling as the room itself, including oysters, crab legs, charcuterie, salads and a plethora of small plates. Decide to stay for dinner, and you might be led deeper into the restaurant, to the elegant, upscale dining area where lighting is dim and votives flicker. This is where steaks are delivered, where deals and relationships are celebrated, where the charms of the restaurant sweep you off your feet.
