Whether for a special-occasion prix fixe meal or casual bistro dinner with friends, French food, like thick cream, still rises to the top.

Bistro Vendôme, Denver

30 of 26

Since 2003 this convivial bistro with outdoor seating has lured diners off bustling Larimer Square downtown into a setting worthy of Paris, where fresh French dishes show off local ingredients—the smoked trout omelette and a beet salad in a kale-hazelnut vinaigrette, to name two. More than 65 French wines are available amid the mustard-tinted walls and tables so packed in that a rendez-vous des amis might soon include the neighbors.
