Good move. Same here. Old pro's in the hospitality industry refer to New Year's Eve as "Amateur's Night Out."

If you're willing to drive to Boulder, Flagstaff House. It's very romantic, gorgeous views, quite expensive. Reservations essential for New Years.

Well, if we're going as far north as Boulder I would suggest The Greenbriar Inn on Foothills Parkway. Great food and fabulous service. Colterra in Niwot is pretty good and I am a huge fan of Sugarbeet in Longmont.

You say that like someone who's lived in Denver for 3 months should automatically know all about the options. I don't. Heck, this will be one of about 3 times a year we eat out.

But thank you for the list... actually, thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'm looking at all of them. Since we usually eat early (5pm, 6 if we Must wait), and know that most restaurants are Dead when they open the doors, I'm not too worried about getting in.

I used to go to Simms Landing (on 6th & Simms) for special nights out.
I hear it is called Simms Steakhouse now. It has the best view anywhere!
Nice place!!!

That is a big hidden truth. I think going out on New Year's Eve is not the greatest time to dine. Take it from me who has worked numerous times for parties, banquets, restaurants and events. The food and the service is not the best because everyone is rushed and under tension.

Going out on New Year's Eve??? I put that holiday in the same category as St. Patrick's Day--too many drunks, too dangerous on the roads. The best idea if you have such a need to say you "celebrated" New Year's is to rent a room in a hotel and eat there, and walk to bed in safety, get up, get a great hotel breakfast--there are many packages available.

Now that I am retired, I will stay home and enjoy the evening, safely and quietly. I may watch "Guy Lombardo and the Royal Canadians"--Ah, I think I am dating myself...well, he is long gone...It does not matter since I will be asleep when the ball drops in Times Square...
