Denver International Airport has been working hard on its restaurant offerings over the past few years, and the program just ramped up with the opening of the Westin Denver International Airport, which features the third Grill & Vine restaurant in the country as well as a bar with a fabulous view. And soon the hotel will add a brewpub, which seems like a lock to make our 2016 list of the best places to eat and drink at DIA. But still, there are plenty of tasty options right now, as outlined in our Thanksgiving 2015 edition of the Ten Best Restaurants at Denver International Airport. Says Joe:

Love Que Bueno! Can't wait until they land in the former Session Kitchen on South Pearl!

Adds Heather:

 I would say Chef Jimmy's Bistro and Spirits in Concourse A is orders of magnitude better (food quality, variety, reasonable prices) than Boulder Beer Taphouse in the terminal. But the rest are good choices.

Concludes Sarah:

I'm still planning to pack in a leftover turkey sandwich when I fly out Friday. No stuffing, though: Those planes are jammed enough already.

Be careful, Sarah: If your sandwich is too big, Frontier might charge you to carry it on!

Heading to Denver International Airport this holiday weekend? You might want to leave early enough so that you can see the new Westin, and grab a drink at the lobby bar. But first, watch our video on the changes at DIA.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
