Critique my Denver list on food caliber and child-friendliness, please

Hi Denver 'hounds --

My taste buds are already gearing for our (roughly) annual trip to Denver to visit family and I'm starting to build my wish list. I'm already indebted to many of you -- particularly rlm and tatamagouche -- for previous postings.

We'll be in town for roughly 8 days, so obviously we won't hit all of the options below, but any recent commentary/preferential rankings/alternatives would be appreciated.

I'd also appreciate input on a very specific front -- the child-friendliness of the restaurants. Not that they need to have toys and food in bags (God, no), but we'll have our 18-month-old son with us for most of our restaurant forays and will be looking for places where high chairs might be available and where the occasional squawk, or child wandering about in the company of an adult, would not be frowned upon. (Last December, we brought him to brunch at Rioja and that was just fine.)

(The child-friendliness of the food, alas, is not a consideration. Despite my efforts to raise a little James Beard, the wee one has entered a phase where anything other than yogurt, bread and sausage is viewed with scorn and suspicion.)

We will probably sneak away for one dinner a deux, so any votes as to what that meal should be are welcome. I'm leaning toward Fruition...

Thanks in advance!
