I was going to suggest Z Cuisine, but then I am biased as I think that Patrick is a great chef.

What are you doing out in Denver? Moving servers into or out of your data center?
Nah, my company's got a big convention that week and I offered to get their networking infrastructure up and going. Benevolence? Eh, I just wanted to go to Colorado on someone else's dime.

Great suggestions guys, I've put all these restaurants on my list. Gonna make a game of it, see how many of them I can visit in 7 days. =)

You can walk just south past Colfax (15th Ave) to the Golden Triangle neighborhood, eat at Cuba Cuba and check out two new museums - the Clyfford Still (friend of Jackson Pollock) or the just opened Colorado History Museum. Both next to the Denver Art Museum, which is open late on Fridays! Mad Greens next to the entry to the DAM has wonderful salads. For real Mexican, I like Taqueria Patzquaro 32nd and Navajo in the Highlands, but locals like Benny's (7th and Grant) or Las Delicious at 19th and Pennsylvania. Walking Capitol Hill is fun because of all the historic Victorian homes and mansions. The Uptown neighborhood has some of the recommended places like Stueben's. My favorite restaurants are TAG in Larimer Square (very close to you at the Convention center) as well as ChoLon, the new Asian inspired but with a major twist. Both are pricey.

+1 for ChoLon. It's a bit pricey, as DenverAztec mentioned, but worth it.

Hey Vegas! You could be right about that! It faces 32nd in mid block and could be between the two! It exact address is 2616 West 32nd Avenue.

I do love LoHi steakhouse, not for the steaks, but for the scallop salad! Linger's food if another that should not be missed!!!! You can get to the Highlands via a short shuttle ride and then walk through Common Park, then over the Millenium bridge and I-25 pedestrian bridge. Lots to see on this walk as it is very vibrant with people. If you don't want to venture too far, at the base of the Millenium bridge is Zengo for wonderful tapas and just around the corner is Denver's Museum of Contemporary Art! And just beyond that is a Six Flags to mix up all that you just chowed down!

I would +1 Biker Jim's restaurant. That place was ALMOST as good as Hot Dough in Chicago (same deal, except Dough has no qualms about foi gra on his hotdogs. Jim seems to have an aversion).

I also loved Jim's home brewed soda with free refills (I believe).

-- I would agree on Pizza, Yelp has never led me so wrong as a Pizza place in Denver.
