Events, Food — By Jess Steinitz on February 28, 2011 at 11:02 pm

Denver Restaurant Week is a two-week celebration of the culinary scene in Denver. Participating restaurants will offer a multi-course dinner for the fixed price of $52.80 for two or $26.40 for one (not including tax or gratuity).

Several of the restaurants participating in this event are independent local restaurants that use locally sourced foods. Fuel Café is a hip, funky, industrial restaurant, that’s off the beaten path. Ideal for an evening of lingering over great food, conversation and wine, Fuel is a one of a kind place—urban, on the river, with views of the city and the mountains. Entrees available are spinach gnocchi, pork maltagliati, cuban skirt steak, prosciutto wrapped cod, chicken marsala, duck breast, and acorn squash stuffed with pesto and quinoa.

Offering sophisticated dining in an elegant and relaxed environment, Shazz Café also uses local, seasonal ingredients and prepares everything from scratch. For Denver Restaurant Week, Shazz will be offering the following entrees as part of its fixe prix menu: beet gnocchi, pork chop, cod with mushrooms and fingerling potatoes, and vegetarian cassoulet.
