D Kennett, not knowing exactly where downtown you will be staying,and not knowing your foods of choice,I will attempt to list just a few restuarants that are within easy walking distance of most major hotels downtown. Also keep in mind, to help you get around downtown, that the buses running up and down the 16th street mall are free. For Italian, there is Panzano’s at 909 17th street, 303/296-3525. Two American restaurants: The Broker at 841 17th street, 303/292-5065,The Palace Arms in the historic Brown Palace, 321 17th street. 303/297-3111, and for German, Cafe Berlin, 323 14th street, 303/377-5896. Actually there are many more, and if you know where you will be staying and let us know what kinds of foods you are looking for, I am sure I along with other readers can give you more suggestions. Regardless, enjoy your stay in Denver.
