We are visiting family in Denver in mid-May and since for once in our lives we will have babysitters on tap, I'm hoping to snag a dinner reservation for two at Frasca (insert implicit Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! of excitement here).
Are there any tips you can share for making the most of our experience in terms of:
--Should we request a specific seating area?
--Am assuming second dinner seating is more enjoyable/leisurely - correct?
--Not-to-miss dishes (I know the menu changes regularly, but if there are a few standards or "themes" of successful dishes, it would be lovely to know)
--Wines - the wine list has me drooling, but I really tend to enjoy trying several pairings per course, which makes the by-the-glass the only even remotely sensible option. That said, would we be missing out on one of the best parts of the dinner by doing so? (I'm not familiar with the vintners on the current by-the-glass list, so don't know whether they're sublime or pedestrian...)
Many thanks in advance. Also looking forward to a traditional lunch at Rioja, cocktails at Green Russell, tacos at Tacos y Salsas and/or Tacos de Mexico, happy hour at ChoLon and perhaps the duck confit banh mi at Row 14. And Chick-fil-A. Can't forget Chick-fil-A.
