5280

We love Denver! One of the perks of living in Denver is 5280 week. We get to eat at sweet, normally ludicrously priced restaurants for $52.80 per couple! This year we both decided to pick a restaurant to eat at.


Aaron's Pick:



ZENGO! Your modern Mexican restaurant. Basically it's Latin-Asian fusion. The food was good and the flavors were interesting. Towards the end of the evening we saw an entertaining appetizer that we are dying to go back and try. It was raw kobe beef served with a fire heated rock for table side cooking. It looked so cool! Here is what we had to eat:

She had-

angry zengo roll- spicy yellowfin tuna / cucumber / wasabi tobiko / sesame chipotle rouille

chicken tandoori- masala-achiote grilled chicken breast / naan / black bean dal / cilantro & mango salsas

churros- trio of dipping sauces - chai custard / spicy chocolate / berry

He had-

angry zengo roll- spicy yellowfin tuna / cucumber / wasabi tobiko / sesame chipotle rouille

tamarind bbq flat iron steak- grilled asparagus / curry-olive oil hollandaise

cajeta flan- ginger-prickly pear sauce / fresh berries




Angela's Pick:



THE MELTING POT! The most fabulous fondue restaurant. This was AMAZING!!! It was the funnest restaurant I have been to in a long time! It might possibly be my new favorite restaurant! Here is what we ate during our two hour feast:

We had-

Boston Lager Cheddar Cheese Fondue- Aged cheddar cheeses blended with Tabasco,® Worcestershire sauce and chopped chives.

California Salad- Mixed baby salad greens, Roma tomatoes, walnuts and Gorgonzola cheese, with Raspberry Black Walnut Vinaigrette Dressing.

Fondue Feast- Filet Mignon, Cedar Plank Salmon, Memphis BBQ Pork Tenderloin, Key West Shrimp, Honey Dijon Chicken, Spinach Artichoke Ravioli, Fresh Vegetables.

Flaming Turtle- Milk chocolate, caramel and chopped pecans, flambéed tableside. Dippers... Fresh strawberries, bananas, cheesecake, tasty marshmallows, pound cake and brownies.


I wish Denver restaurants would always offer this deal!

I must say that I think I built myself up too much for the Melting Pot because I was kinda disappointed. I did like every other, the salad and the chocolate were great, but I wasn't thrilled about the main course. I'm glad you liked it.
