Restaurant Week in Denver starts today. The exact dates this year for Restaurant Week are February 23rd-March 8th. I have blogged about Restaurant Week–http://lovelivingincolorado.wordpress.com/2012/02/28/denver-restaurant-week/
This year we will be enjoying two restaurants during Restaurant Week. We will try NoRTH and Vesta Dipping Grill. A helpful Restaurant Week tip: make your reservations ASAP! This year I was guilty of dragging my feet. I am usually on the website as soon as Restaurant Week reservations are open. This year I was not so quick. However, don’t let this discourage you. If you call the restaurants directly a lot of times they can squeeze you in.
I have big news in reference to Restaurant Week. This year we are trying something new at our favorite place to dine. We are heading over to the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management at the University of Denver. Why? Gina Stipo (Italian-American chef) from Ecco La Cucina in Tuscany, Italy will be at the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management. The event is called the Tour D’Italia Dinner. The dinner will be a five course meal inspired by the diverse cuisines across Italy and will be individually paired with award winning Italian wine from Banfi Vintners. The dinner is open to the public and all of the proceeds from this event will be invested directly back into the program and students so the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management can continue to provide a “learn by doing” education.
This delectable dinner is being held on February 28, 2013 in the Tuscan Wine Cellar at the University of Denver in the Daniels College of Business. We literally are counting down the days for this dinner. We can’t wait!! The entire evening is organized and executed by the industry’s best up and coming professionals in the hospitality industry. We recently had the honor of attending an out of this world exquisite dinner held in the Tuscan Wine Cellar at the University of Denver in the Daniels College of Business. The following pictures are from that wonderful experience–the Beer Pairing Dinner. Hopefully these mouth-watering pictures will tempt you to attend the Tour D’Italia Dinner.Shall I save you a seat? Do you have plans on February 28th? Sometimes words can’t describe pure joy. Take it from me, the University of Denver, Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management is the place to be!
