Shivering in Denver

I'm back!  I hope you missed me (and my posts).  I missed you.  But, since I haven't really traveled or haven't cooked anything exciting, I decided to not bore you, dear reader.

I'm traveling in Denver this week and feeling the cold.  The locals believe that its warm outside but the burning of my ears once I hit the inside of a building tells me the locals are wrong!!  Although cold, Denver is beautiful.  I'm sitting in a conference room that overlooks the Front Range, the Bronco's stadium, and the amusement park (which includes a ferris wheel that is lit up fantastically at night)!  Needless to say, I have a great view.

Several colleagues and I arrived on Monday and we went straight-away to Elway's for dinner.  Yes, John Elway's steak place.  I hate to say it, but it was like any other steak place.  The steak was crusted with a freshly-cracked black peppercorn crust.  Almost too much - it was a little overwhelming.  The sides were a-la-carte and again, were OK.  Final decision - I can say I've been there...must likely will not go back.

However, Tuesday night, we went to Osteria Marco in Larimer Square (really cute area with nice shops and restaurants - the kind of place one could while away an afternoon).  Look for the pig outside.  You walk in and immediately saunter down a flight of stairs into the dark friendly dining room that has a bar along one wall. This place was incredible.  Fabulous really.  I would recommend this joint to anyone in Denver.

One word will say it all......YUMMMMMMM.  There were four of us and we pigged out.  Once again....don't hate the eater:

1.  The chef's selection of meats and cheeses (house made ricotta wrapped in house made mozeralla; several imported cheeses, fig jam, several types of salumi)

2.  Meatball sliders

3.  Pizza with lamb sausage, arugula, and goat cheese.  Thin crust - as light as air.

4. Main couse:  Pam and I split the Eggplant Parm, Dave and Mike split the lamb meatballs.

I was SO full that I could only handle about half of my half on the parm.  Hey - that's only a quarter of the dish!  Wow!  That doesn't make me sound like the little piggy that cried wee wee wee all the home. 

p.s. Sorry that the pictures are a bit dark.  The restaurant had low lighting and my iPod Touch doesn't take the best pictures in a low light setting.
