I'm back. Unfortunately, I spent most of the trip (I was only there for 2 days) reeling about sickly from the altitude.
Sweet Basil was quite nice, but in all honesty, I probably would have been satisfied with my appetizer alone- white truffle french fries. The plate was huge, and they were incredible!
We drove by Empire, but alas, weren't hungry yet (it was only about 10AM). Lunch ended up being at the airport: my husband had some bbq at Red Rocks. It was Kansas City-style, which we discovered, wasn't to either of our tastes.
Then, I had some of a portabello sandwich at the French Bistro. Tasted okay, but didn't stay down long- and I have a stomach of iron.
Not my best eating trip, and I'm blaming it all on the altitude!
Thanks again for the advice, though!
