Le Grand’s Daily Offering of Joie de Vivre
If you have ever fantasized of sitting in a Parisian bistro surrounded by classical decor as you sip upon a slightly chilled French white wine and slurp down fresh oysters, then you will certainly enjoy a summer afternoon at Denver’s Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar. Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar stands smack dab in the center of downtown Denver beckoning in each passerby with its exterior French bistro facade.
As you step into Le Grand, you will observe an interior that screams French bistro as much as the exterior. Oversized booth seating, 125 year old mosaic floors, and vintage chandeliers lend grandeur to an appearance that also exudes a tinge of mystery with its smoky mirrors and rather dim lighting. One lunch or dinner at Le Grand makes it difficult to not fantasize of an era when Moules Frites, a plate of fine, local, freshly ripened cheese, and a half liter of the local French table wine was an everyday occurrence, just part of the daily joie de vivre.
With the daily menu specials carefully written upon the chalkboard, you may choose from chef Sergio Romero’s current offerings of locally sourced haute cuisine. Such dishes as Le Grand’s Ratatouille Tart, one of 5280 Magazine’s Best Bites of 2012, offer a wedded symphony of buttery crust and slowly cooked summer vegetables. With a fresh oyster here and there and everywhere in between, your ideal summer lunch is complete.
Fantasies aside, Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar offers a sampling of French haute cuisine that may make your heart flutter. Coupled with an attractive, slightly mysterious, classically French setting, Le Grand Bistro holds an allure that will continue to draw in foodies, even from afar.
