- The restaurant itself is amazing; there are big game heads hung all over the place and it is like museum with old stuff every where: dishes, pictures, Native American clothing. So cool! Luckily our server was into history and was able to tell us stories of FDR coming in here and Buffalo Bill’s buddy started the place and 5 presidents have eaten there and really it is amazing. Check out the website, if you are ever in Denver you should try this place.
- Crazy appetizers: Rocky Mountain Oysters, Grilled Rattlesnake that was marinated in chili lime sauce, blackened unicorn (ok I made that up, the unicorn I mean but everything else is really there). We tried the Rocky Mountain Oysters which were served with 3 sauces: mustard, marinara, and horseradish. I like the horseradish the best! In all honestly since the “oysters” were deep fried they really didn’t have a distinctive taste. The thing I relate them to the most is a fried chicken liver. Oh, and I had a cup of navy bean and ham soup – to die for! It is the same recipe that they were using back when FDR came…so cool.
- The main courses will blow your mind! On the menu is beef, buffalo, elk, lamb, I could go on and on. The FH and I shared the special which had four ounce filets of: buffalo, elk and ostrich and was served with a full quail and giant mound of mashed potatoes. They were all so good, and all of these meats are 90-95% lean. The ostrich was my favorite, it sort of tasted like a duck but not greasy at all and it had the richness of a really good beef filet. Marc and Nicole had some of the same things we had but they also had lamb and yak and said the yak was the best…interesting I might have to go back to Denver.
Sorry pictures to come later in the day…
