BEST BREAKFAST SPOT
Snooze was founded in 2006 on the ideas that breakfast marks the beginning of a new day, life is worth living, and it only takes a moment to make a difference. The place tries to make a difference not only by offering fresh twists on classic breakfast and brunch items, but also with its environmental efforts, which are different each month. (July is Energy, August is Compost.) The Snooze headquarters are in RiNo, and there are now six restaurant locations in Colorado, two in California, and two in Arizona.

BEST BUSINESS LUNCH SPOT
The signature restaurant at the Renaissance Denver Downtown City Center Hotel is described as “saloon meets executive suite” by Zagat reviewers. Range Restaurant itself, in the former Colorado National Bank Building downtown, calls its cuisine New American West, which means the concept focuses on ingredients and cooking techniques of the Rocky Mountain region. The menu changes seasonally, and there are local beers and wines. Range Restaurant is also available for private functions, and the eatery will customize the menu for the group.

BEST BUSINESS DINNER SPOT
There are four locations of Elway’s Steakhouse: in the downtown Denver Ritz-Carlton, Cherry Creek, Vail, and DIA. Each restaurant can accommodate private parties with indoor and outdoor facilities with names such as the Hall of Fame Room and the Mile High Room, with audio/visual capabilities so participants can view a PowerPoint presentation while eating a USDA Prime hand-cut steak, or even seafood, pork, iceberg wedges, or other items.
