Though the rolling hills, breathtaking mountain-scapes, and impenetrably blue skies are all Denver homegrown, a few of the Mile-High City's favorites are bound to be out-of-towners. Exhibit A: DiFranco's on Lincoln Street. For $7, you'll enjoy $14 to spend on food and non-alcoholic drinks at this popular Italian eatery.
Built on the legacy of family members who arrived in the US in the late 1800's -- and made stops in New York and North Carolina before touching down in Colorado -- Ryan DiFranco employs the best in Italian technique combined with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Welcome the mountain-country sun with fresh Italian pastries and Boxcar Coffee, or stop by for lunch or early dinner, where house-made pastas include silky fettuccine with spicy tomato sauce and rich ravioli with nutty pesto. Or, choose the crisp chicken Parm sub adorned with parsley, onions, and basil for a treat that may have you swearing never to leave Denver again.
