Best of Denver

Denver's five best French restaurants

Happy Bastille Day, Denver. We'll grab just about any excuse to pop open a bottle of French wine and chow down on baguettes, but the storming of the Bastille on July 14 may be the best excuse we'll find all year.

While one of our favorite spots for a French feast, Brasserie Felix, closed earlier this month, here are the best best French restaurants still standing:

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Laura Shunk was Westword's restaurant critic from 2010 to 2012; she's also been food editor at the Village Voice and a dining columnist in Beijing. Her toughest assignment had her drinking ten martinis and eating ten Caesar salads over the course of 48 hours. She still drinks martinis, but remains lukewarm on Caesar salads.
