The Perfect Landing

Outside the big windows of the Perfect Landing Restaurant, an out-of-the-way spot on the second floor of the Denver JetCenter at Centennial Airport, small airplanes buzz as they take off and land. Inside, live lobsters swim in a tank by the entrance and a man named Boogie Bob plays old-timey piano tunes five days a week. The restaurant feels like a hometown throwback, with its quasi-upscale decor and meat- and seafood-heavy menu. For breakfast, there are massive four-egg omelets, crab Benedicts and towering stacks of pancakes. For lunch, choose from fourteen sandwiches or the Mexican offerings that regulars — pilots and locals — rave about. For dinner, they suggest the seafood tower packed with lobster tail, East coast oysters, scallops, king crab legs and tiger shrimp. Diners, fasten your seatbelts.
