I believe there are three major components to ensuring you have a good dining experience in Colorado.

  • The food tastes good.
  • The service goes smoothly.
  • The restaurant has a good vibe.

With the combination of those three, I am more than happy to return. I'm also not picky. If I have one of those three I will probably go back. What can I say, I am a creature of habit.

There are many gorgeous restaurants in Colorado. But did you know that one Colorado restaurant is among the most beautiful in the nation?

At first sight, I thought the word beautiful was a little dramatic, but after more digging, this restaurant is, in fact, beautiful.

I noticed when I looked at their menu that they do not have their prices listed. If you go, expect the bill to be relatively expensive. I recommend booking in advance for a special occasion.
