Racines dishes up classic desserts -- including this banana cream pie recipe!

A few short months after Racine's opened in 1983, it won the Best Dessert award in Westword's very first Best of Denver. The dessert was the Triple Crown, similar to a Dobos torte with layers of chocolate frosting, cake and ice cream. That dish is no longer on the menu, but diners still have plenty of desserts to choose from at Racines -- fourteen in all. "There is always room for dessert," says co-owner Lee Goodfriend.
