We landed in Denver, Colorado, 2 days prior of heading up towards our breathtaking skiing experience in Vail. So, we decided to explore the city a bit.

Denver is a very charming city, and we had a great time just exploring it and walking around before heading up for our skiing experience in Vail.

The city has a little over 680,000 people and it houses some of the most amazing 19th-century buildings, museums and landscapes.

These are a few of the places we visited:

For our healthy start in Denver, we went for lunch at True Food Kitchen. We do love healthy, seasonal and sustainable food, so it was the perfect place! Yes, they do have other restaurants in other cities across the U.S., but we had never gone there before. Nonetheless, they have a very good healthy menu that we really enjoyed.

We coincidently picked the top choices on their menu, and loved them all! These were our dishes:

  • Edamame Dumplings with a delicious white truffle oil
  • A to-drool-for “Inside-out” Quinoa Burger with hummus, avocado, feta, and other great ingredients
  • Winter Ingredient Salad had Brussels sprout, squash, mulberry, pomegranate

Do ask for dessert! They are all extremely tempting, and we just couldn’t get enough. We ordered the Flourless Chocolate Cake. It’s gluten free and vegetarian, with 72% cocoa, vanilla ice cream, almond butter and caramel. We also tried the Chia Seed Pudding with banana and coconut flakes, that was fantastic!

Last, but definitely not least, we tried the Genmaicha Green Tea with almond milk and vanilla!

And, the best news for us, healthy New Yorkers, is that they’ll be opening a beautiful and huge 3 story place this next fall! So, keep your eyes opened.

Location: 2800 East 2nd Ave, #101

Union Station of Denver

Our Experts Recaps Denver Union Station InsideAny place, is a work place, right?! Well, we think this way and any place with chairs, we pop opened our laptop.

So as we were walking around and exploring Denver and we bumped into the Union Station of Denver which was actually very interesting!

It was built in 1881 and they have restored the place beautifully!

We stopped there to work a bit, but we did walk around it too.

There are some nice restaurants, bars, retail stores with handmade stuff, candles, scarves, etc!

It also hosts the Crawford Hotel, so do check it out!

At night, we decided to have dinner at a very trendy, relatively new restaurant named Bar Dough. It’s located in the Highlands neighborhood, today considered an upcoming, cool place to live.

We ordered a few different dishes, since we were curious about them all, so we decided to share everything and have a taste of each.

Our choices were: Garlic Bread – in-house made focaccia, parmesan, parsley, Oven Roasted Carrot – farro, chickpeas, carrot, cumin vinaigrette, Grilled Octopus – charred eggplant, caponata, toasted pistachio, mustard frill, King Trumpet Mushroom – guanciale vinaigrette, and for dessert the Fried Dough – served w/ lemon curd, caramel, hot chocolate sauce.

It was all very, very good! Plus the space is great, with a beautiful crowd.

“Fire” away to start off the day!

On our second and last day, we had breakfast at Fire Restaurant, located inside this super cool artsy hotel in Denver, called The Art Hotel. With a beautiful architecture, a fabulous view and a phenomenal service, it’s definitely done with the heART.

They host original art works and collections of 20th and 21st century artists from around the world, which does make a difference when you’re exploring the place!

To start off a dazzling new day, we had an amazing Smoked Salmon Benedict – to die for – and black coffee, which we love!

Thank you Chef Chris, and the team – Dan, Quenton and Aaron!

UNFORTUNATELY THIS SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

From 1938 through 1951, if you passed through Times Square, you would most probably stop by the Diamond Horseshoe – a dinner theater and club in the basement of the Paramount Hotel.

After 62 years of being closed down it experiencing a millionaire restoration that costed $20million. Finally, the place reopened the New Years Eve of 2014 with a breathtaking and surprising night for guests.

We know…it’s in Times Square! But, this is maybe one of the very few posts you’ll ever see with recommendations of things to do there. This is surely a worthy exception!

The talented Fashion Editor we adore, Giovanna Battaglia, is the Creative Director of this theatrical dinner named today as the “Queen of the Night”.

Is was reborn as a mixture of theater, music, circus, culinary experience, design and nightlife. It offers guests an interactive entertainment experience with a complete sit-down dinner.

Cocktail or gala attire is required! So, as they say: “Dress for the Queen”!

What are the comments about it? See what the best experts are saying:

  • “Delicious, decadent and provocatively intimate.” ~ The Hollywood Reporter
  • “Variety show for the senses.” ~ The Daily Beast
  • “A mixture of decadence and glamorous decay” ~ Vanity Fair
  • “Redefines NYC dinner theater.” ~ ZAGAT
  • “Take your idea of dinner theater and trash it.” ~ Yahoo!

Take a look at this quick video with Giovanna Battaglia to get a feel of what it’s all about:

This New York theatrical dinner Queen of the Night is definitely “the” place to go!

If you enjoy these type of theatrical performances, you might also enjoy the House of Yes, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. They have similar performances, with a mixture of burlesque.

Also, before the show, you might want to start the night with a drink at The Press Lounge rooftop, just a few blocks away!

We know that New York can be quite overwhelming with so many different shows, places, events to chose from. Let our experts behind our Concierge Services and our Corporate Services help you out.

Have fun with the best that the city has to offer!

Location: 235 West 46th Street
