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.
For a list of those participating and to make reservations, go to www.denver.org.
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.
