Denver’s al fresco dining starsDenver, USA

With 300 days of sunshine every year, Denver is a city where people like to get outside, and one of the big draw cards are its outdoor patios – they’re almost always ready to welcome visitors to enjoy their farm-to-table cuisine al fresco. Especially at historic Larimer Square, which has become the city’s premier dining and shopping destination. Victorian buildings connected by fairy lights have been converted into stylish boutiques, lounges and hyper-local, chef-driven restaurants. And most of them have a patio.

TAG Restaurant is just one of the Square’s amazing offerings. The menu, inspired by chef Troy Guard’s Hawaiian roots, is a dazzling homage to the flavours of Asia made with local ingredients. Seafood potstickers with Korean soy vinaigrette, flash-seared hamachi (yellowtail tuna) tricked out with pop rocks, and taco sushi with Hawaiian ahi, guacamole and mango salsa are just some of the dishes you can try.

The city’s other source of prime entertainment real estate comes from up high. Places like 54Thirty Rooftop, Denver’s highest open-air bar, are popular for late-afternoon sessions. Cocktails, bar snacks and stunning views of the city are all part of its charm.
