Still looking like the beautiful place of worship it once was, the Old Stone Church continues to be a mecca for some kind of reverence or another, whether your particular religion be food or wine. The serene, elegant restaurant offers just the kind of joyous occasion that takes the edge off the stresses of the season. Sunday brunch is the obvious best choice for the Church, which counts stained-glass windows, cream-colored walls and white linens among its glorious offerings. Sadly, the original stained-glass window of the Last Supper that once hung in the now-decommissioned building was taken out by the Denver Archdiocese because it was deemed sacrilegious to leave it, but plenty of holy reminders remain, including the much-coveted table in the confessional, which makes for some fine romantic dining. But not on Sundays, when the place is filled with families and church-goers of another sort. They're all there to commune (at a good price) over such innovative goodies as the "soup of the moment," salads, decadent baked goods and more. It's also a great choice for a romantic dinner (try the duck) or appetizer-grazing at the bar.
