    The wine list here is Super Bowl quality, full of classy labels like Rubicon and Andrew Will. The zingy charred red pepper soup, New York strip steak, and the grilled split artichokes are great picks. Read more

    Go to Elway's, NFL legend John Elway's watering hole in the suburb of Cherry Creek, for a great wine list and try the Japanese tuna stack. Read more

    The bar is a major gathering place, and also a good spot to eat a more casual meal. A meal here isn't cheap, but for both the quality of the food and the company, it's well worth the price. Read more

    Alongside prime cuts you'll find Western-inspired creations like a BLT Salad with an over-easy duck egg, Spicy Steak Chili and a finger-licking Lamb Chop Fondue with green chile cheese dipping sauce. Read more

    One of the best filet mignon steaks I have ever had. Huge selection of local and imported wines will go great with the main course. Sadly, dessert was a letdown. Too many artificial flavors.

    Avoid the prime rib. Not as good as it should have been for the price. Way too much fat and gristle.
