Local Jones: Cocktails & Confections | Tuesday, February 13th

Join Local Jones for a new Cocktails & Confections class led by the in-house pastry chef, Saura Kline, on Tuesday, February 13th from 6-7:30pm. In a hands-on class, Chef Saura will be teaching you the art of chocolate truffle making in two variations.

Blue Island Oyster Bar & Seafood

Indulge in the aphrodisiacal allure of Blue Island Oyster Bar & Seafood, a locally-owned restaurant renowned for its commitment to serving the finest and freshest catch. Plus, the ambiance inside is as inviting as the menu, creating an intimate setting that's perfect for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner.

Cretans …or Kini’s

New to Denver from the Quality Italian team, also behind Kini’s and Chez Roc. Cretans is an upscale wine bar and restaurant featuring tapas, delicious pour-over martinis, and more. Kini’s dining room is designed to transport guests to an idyllic summer night in a quaint Greek island town, with silk flowers covering the ceiling and a menu featuring light island dishes. Both are located in the ground floor of the Clayton Hotel & Members Club and both would be incredible options for dinner with your Valentine!

Menu highlight: whole Mediterranean fish sold by the pound, roasted in the wood-fired oven and finished with field herbs and lemon.

Hillstone

A well-known Denver staple for an incredible meal, Hillstone’s menu celebrates seasonal selections from local purveyors, ensuring each dish is fresh and of the highest standard. You will not be disappointed here, and a date here for Valentine’s Day is sure to set the mood and impress. Signature dishes include Grilled Colorado Lamb Sirloin, Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, Thai Steak and Noodle Salad, and Warm Five-Nut Brownie.

Le Bilboquet

Reminiscent of a charming French bistro, Le Bilboquet brings a slice of Parisian café culture to the neighborhood and makes the perfect date spot for Valentine’s Day. With Executive Chef Sosthène Kaboré at the helm of the ship, the impressive chef “cooks the restaurant’s signature dishes—such as the juicy Cajun chicken with French butter sauce that’s been on the menu since 1986—but has also been introducing menu items with decidedly un-French flair.” Read the 5280 magazine article online here for a breakdown of the un-French scallop carpaccio appetizer.

Del Frisco’s Grille

Modern, inviting, stylish and fun, Del Frisco’s Grille takes the classic bar and grill to new heights, where you can expect a date to dress up for, and a menu drawing inspiration from bold flavors and market-fresh ingredients. Set the stage for an amazing night out, or end the night here with sprawling wine walls that house an eclectic collection of wine, 250 labels approximately.

Narrative

Narrative highlights an array of dishes that allow you and your Valentine the flexibility to let your meal tell a story of your choosing, and it’s the season of love! Their approachable menu features modern American dishes, crafted by Executive Chef Jon Keeley, guaranteeing a truly exceptional experience.

If your date is a wine lover, Narrative offers wine by the glass from a curated collection, or by the bottle from a diverse wine library featuring nearly 100 selections. Beautifully displayed in a glass case, the selection is thoughtfully curated to complement each offering on the menu.

Quality Italian

Through welcoming reclaimed wood doors, enter a warm, romantic interior in Quality Italian where you can expect a modern take on the Italian-American steakhouse tradition. All the pasta is made in-house, and there are some centerpiece main dishes like the chicken-parm pizza for two and baked lasagna with filet meatballs… and did we mention complimentary garlic monkey bread? Because, wow.

Toro Latin Kitchen & Lounge

If you’re in the mood for some of the best blending of Pan Latin flavors and creative shareable small plates, Toro Latin Kitchen & Lounge is the spot for you! Relaxed and inviting, Toro is a perfect romantic option for you and your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.

Pro tip: Come often? Reserve a tequila locker at Toro! Stored and made available anytime you visit, enjoy discounted bottle prices and access to your own personal stash of high-end tequila.

Cucina Colore

Open in Cherry Creek North since 1994, this neighborhood favorite guarantees next-level service, food, and setting. Cucina Colore offers contemporary Italian cuisine, focusing on dishes that are both creative and fresh, with seasonal ingredients delivered daily and is sure to impress.
