We have a new favorite restaurant here in Winter Park, CO. The place has been here for a long, long while but the food and wine have become very good u=in the last year or so. We had a chance to get out of the house and have what the wife is calling a “date night” this past week. The meal we had was exquisite.
It was a slow off season Wednesday night and the snow was falling. We walked into Deno’s at about 7:30PM to a half full bar and a few tables in the dining area. The service was great with an attentive but not overbearing waiter. We had a bottle of Cambria Pinot Noir that was great and at $32 was very fairly priced. Sarah, the wife, had a filet that was incredibly tender and cooked just as ordered. I had the the chicken marsala that was perfect. Tender chicken on top of spinach all over a bed of orzo was just what I needed on a cold night in Winter Park.
The best part of the night however was after the meal was over. Heading to the bathroom I ran into Teddy, Deno’s son and now owner, and he invited Sarah and I up to the new wine room upstairs. I’m thinking on the way up what have they thrown together up here at Deno’s? Well, what a wonderful room that Teddy and company has put together. The wines in this room some of the best wines that can be found in Winter Park and for that matter all of Colorado. The Wine room has a table that will seat six comfortably surrounded on all sides by some fantastic wine. It is really a cool setting. If you would like to resrve the table for a private dinner at Deno’s give them a call at 970-726-5332.
Denos’ has come back and is one of the best restaurants here in the Fraser Valley. Looking for a nice meal out with the boys or a “date night” with the lovely wife you can not go wrong with Deno’s.
