Admin, forgive me if this doesn't need to be a stand alone post. But there have been lots of threads in the past here in the Denver section about food. The idea is that this would be an ongoing thread about Denver eats. People could just bump the threadt randomly when they have a suggestion or tried a new place and want to spread the news...would that work?

I've been living here in Denver for about 30 months now. I kept hearing about the Village Tavern on the radio, so we finally decided to make the journey and try it. We live in Parker, so Flatiron Crossings is about 45 minutes for us. But man was it worth the drive. Everything we had there was delicious.

French Onion soup, Bacon wrapped scallops, Bacon Cheeseburger with Dubliner cheese, Club sandwich, beef nachos. my wife and I and a friend went up there and threw down on Saturday. Everything we had was delicious. I'd highly recommend hitting this place sometime if you haven't already. Dee-lish!

Over the weekend, my wife and I ate at Sam's No 3 Diner in downtown near the convention center. It was our second time there and we thought the food was great. I had one of their skillets and it was a LOT of food. I highly recommend them if you are at the convention center for anything. It is just a two block walk away.

It was excellent.
Can't tell you what I ate as I was sworn to secrecy.

Good thread, sort of a running commentary on what's good this week....

It's good if you "threw down" but not so good to "throw up."

Had brunch with friends at Root Down on Sunday morning and while my friends LOVED their food, I didn't care for mine. I had "The Root Down" which is essentially eggs benedict, but on quinoa instead of an english muffin. The quinoa was overcooked and it honestly just wasn't that great. Despite the fact that I didn't like my food, I'd go back and try something else.

Spice China in Louisville - been going there forever, one of our old reliables.

Their menu is a good mix that works both for those who enjoy Chinese American style and those who enjoy the more exotic sides of Chinese food, including a Shanghai menu.

Over the years they've expanded their offerings and have become a sort of pan-Asian place. They have a sushi menu and more that I've never tried - I go there for Chinese - Salt and Pepper Squid is a favorite.

"The Thirsty Lion" on Wynkoop and 16th, right by Union Station.

Good menu and everyone, including me, enjoyed their food. Service was a bit on the slow side for lunchtime though.

I just ate at the cafeteria here at work. They made me a nice bison burger which was surprisingly good coming from them.
