Dining in a historic building gives that authentic historic feel without having to don pince-nez or fake laugh at Teddy Roosevelt’s jokes. Relish in relics with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of inventive American fare and drinks at The Lobby located in the heart of the Ballpark neighborhood. Situated in the historic Paris Hotel building, The Lobby serves an informal but elegant menu of innovative delicacies seasoned with spices from the chef’s garden. Bacon wrapped shrimp ($9) and bleu cheese balls ($7) play nice with an extensive cocktail and wine list. Entrees include the grilled mahi slumbering on a bed of risotto and blanketed in pico de gallo ($18, half portion $12), and the apple pistachio salad—a mix of baby greens partying with diced granny-smith apples, sliced red onion, and goat cheese crumbles like its Spring Break ‘09 ($8). Dine inside, or court a slice of chocolate cheese cake ($4) al fresco on The Lobby’s European-style courtyard patio.
- All of the standard appetizers and entrees are prepared with a special twist designed to separate them from the norm. – John G. Miller, Denver Daily News.
- This is a wonderful bistro; reminds me of a New Orleans French Quarter spot, with a huge lovely courtyard and a few Cajun [sic] inspired dishes. – Tres B., Yelp
