4. Golden Europe
(6620 Wadsworth Boulevard, Arvada)
At Golden Europe, you might feel like you're on a whirlwind bus tour of Central Europe, with three large platters -- the German plate, Austrian plate and Czech plate -- showcasing the greatest culinary hits from each country. Look for wiener schnitzel, roast duck and veal bratwurst on the German plate, along with German potato salad and sauerkraut. If it's spaetzle and red cabbage that you're after, try the Austrian plate, which features identical proteins, minus the duck.
