Bistro Vendôme, Denver

25 of 27

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.
