Word is out on the third annual Denver Restaurant Week, February 24-March 7. The culinary celebration has boomed from 83 restaurants the first year to 125 last year to 150 this year. All are offering multi-course dinners for $52.80 for two ($26.40 for one), not including tax or tip.

One of DRW's regulars is Panzano at 1717 Champa Street, in the Hotel Monaco. Panzano is currently closed for some kitchen renovations (including a new floor), but it will be up and running again on February 4, in plenty of time to prepare for the the Restaurant Week onslaught later that month.
