Now, with the world’s second-largest performing arts center and Daniel Libeskind’s addition to the Denver Art Museum, the Mile High City continues to ascend in stature among American cities.
With a revitalized downtown and cozy neighborhood haunts, the Denver metropolitan area has developed a sophisticated and diverse dining scene to match any big city's. There’s a little of everything—swanky big-night-out places, stick-to-your-ribs American comfort food, first-rate sushi, and a thriving ethnic restaurant scene. Highlights include Sonoma'z Wine Bar & Grill
, with its innovative interpretations of American classics.
