The less expensive, whimsically decorated little sister of the upscale Restaurant Kevin Taylor also resides in the Hotel Teatro. With its Italian opera prints, curvaceous mezzanine, and black-granite bar, Prima appeals to lovers of modern Italian fare. The menu focuses on upscale renditions of contemporary classics, such as lemon-roasted garlic chicken with toasted farro and Angus sirloin with Gorgonzola potato gratin, and theatergoers love the one-block proximity to the
Denver Performing Arts Complex. The weekend champagne brunch draws a crowd; it begins with a full line of crudo and continues with an astounding selection of northern Italian specialties, such as soft egg ravioli with truffle butter.
