Elegant doesn't do justice to this restaurant's dining room: a classy, soothing space done in tones of gold and hunter green. Exclusive upholstery, flatware, and dishes add to the upscale attitude, as does the formal service style and a top-shelf wine list. The contemporary menu has an updated Mediterranean bent underscored by French techniques, with such classics as roasted lamb loin with lamb belly confit and roasted duck with duck leg beignets. The tasting menu, geared
toward theatergoers heading to the Denver Performing Arts Complex a block away, provides a rare chance to try chef Taylor's eclectic creations, and the stone-lined wine cellar makes for intimate private dining.
