“Ah, Denver…the sunshine state!”
Thankfully, the Sheraton in Denver was great and our room was huge. We were upgraded to a corner room, which was bigger than the last apartment we lived in. The girls literally got to run around the place. We also had nice views from our room.
We took some time to re-organize our suitcases, then headed out for lunch. From our hotel, we walked about 10 minutes to Steuben’s Food Service. Steuben’s was a recommendation from a friend of a friend. It was also featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.
There was a bit of a wait for our table (it was Sunday), so we decided to indulge in an adult beverage. I had their specialty drink, a Bloody Mary with bacon-infused vodka and M had a regular Bloody Mary. Both were delicious.
We were happy with the customer service and impressed with the food. I had the lobster roll and fries – which was delicious and, might I proclaim, better than Luke’s Lobster roll in NYC. Their Kids Meal came served in an old-school lunch tray with cut-up fruit (strawberries & grapes), fried corn and edamame (one of Kid C’s favorite veggies)! M had the cast-iron french toast which he described as “delicious, but be prepared to have your insulin shot ready.”
The restaurant itself was a great example of adaptive reuse – it used to be an auto repair shop and the owners converted it to a restaurant. The space had a mod industrial-vintage vibe.
Our impressions of Denver was that its downtown was clean and easy to get around. Here was a random parking garage with a funky façade:
