We love the patio outside Maggiano’s in the Denver Pavilions, where the people-watching is almost as delicious as the happy-hour deals from 3-5:30 p.m. weekdays, including calamari fritte ($1.95), spaghetti & mini meatballs ($2.95) and chicken saltimbocca ($3.95). And both this location and Maggiano’s DTC are offering lighter, seasonal summer fare in June, with grilled chicken chopped salad and seared scallops with caponata on the roster through Wednesday, June 11.
Get a free taste from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, June 5, when executive chef George Poston will be preparing complimentary samples of the new specials in the bar at the DTC restaurant. For details on that deal, call 303-858-1405.
