Experience Joie de Vivre at This Denver Wine Bistro
There are few places in Denver where you can experience joie de vivre, enjoying the French way of drinking and eating slowly, and with a pleasure that can only be derived from delightful wines, artisan cheeses, and dishes that center upon seasonality. With the light rail station one block away at Louisiana and Pearl Street, you don’t even have to drive down to this little wine bistro located in the Old South Pearl Business District.
The specials are always written up on the chalkboard, displaying the current seasonal menu. With Denver Restaurant Week in full swing, you might check out their menu written on their chalkboard and here online. This annual menu only comes around once a year and features the best of the best. Trout Almondine, caramelized onion, roasted garlic, and goat cheese pizza, and a flourless chocolate torte are some of the delicacies that will be showcased on their menu for this year’s Restaurant Week.
For just twenty dollars, each course will be paired with a wine that complements the food, creating a harmony of flavors on the palate. The money raised from the wine pairings will be donated to Brent’s Place, a local center of healing and hope for children with cancer.

Pearl St., offers a cozy dining nook for wine and cheese lovers to gather, slow down, and experience the symphony of tastes that the chefs of The Village Cork so artfully orchestrate.
