Located in downtown Denver in what was once the Denver National Bank, The Broker is a fun place to dine on a great steak. The restaurant’s centerpiece is a huge bank vault, which is now the dining room; and private parties can take over one of the old boardrooms. Go down some stairs and through what seems like it might have been a secret passageway, and you find yourself in the restaurant’s massive wine cellar, which has a dining table that can seat up to 20 (or just two, if you’re feeling romantic). The steakhouse features dishes like roasted prime rib with creamed horseradish and steak Diane with a Courvoisier cream sauce. But one of the highlights precedes the main course: a complimentary bowl of chilled shrimp.
Because it wouldn’t be a Colorado vacation without a hearty steak dinner — and Denver wouldn’t be Denver without Bronco Hall-of-Famer John Elway — add Elway’s to your must-do list. This steakhouse is a touchdown all around, featuring smart décor and a floor-to-ceiling wine wall holding thousands of bottles. The lamb fondue appetizer, Elway’s salmon and the bone-in rib-eye are sure bets. We recommend the Bison burger or sliced prime rib sandwich.
