So here’s something new I want to try and do. Eating out is so much fun and there are always new and exciting places to go, whether I’m traveling or just bumming it around Denver. One of these great places is Guard and Grace. Now we got the star treatment when we went! I participated in a bankruptcy law competition in March and our coaches took us out and treated us to this glorious dinner. As you see above the menu was pre-planned and so good! Also we had our own private room for our party of like 15 people…but buyer beware, this is a dinner saved for a splurge night for sure!
We started the night off with some appetizers. Luckily it portioned out just right that everyone at our table got to try at least one of each appetizer (picture above on left). Every app was amazing, but my favorite was the crab cake. You can tell a lot about a place based on their crab cakes, and I give this places two thumbs up! The tuna tartare was also amazing! Also, this place makes an amazing old fashioned, my drink of choice! Next up was the salad choice. I chose the Greek Salad which was awesome! The dressing was perfect and the little piece of pita tied the whole thing together.
Then it was time for the main event. An 8oz filet mignon with a nice giant carrot on top. Oh my goodness, my mouth is watering just at the thought of this piece of meat! It was cooked to perfection. I didn’t want this to end!Everyone who ordered it enjoyed it! I mean just look at the glee on Chris’s face below! But this wasn’t all folks!
With dinner we had brussel sprouts and whipped potatoes served family style. Now I’m not the biggest b.sprouts fan, but these whipped potatoes…I WANT TO EAT A BATHTUB FULL OF THEM. The b.sprouts were good, but the potatoes stole my heart and are still holding it for ransom! My friend Erica didn’t order a filet mignon, but ordered the Alaskan Black Cod instead (middle picture above) and it was amazing! I mean fish is hit or miss at restaurants, sometimes the fish comes out too dry or too fishy (yes that’s a thing… you know what I mean). This fish was cooked perfectly and almost…I repeat almost… made me wish I ordered it over the filet mignon.
And no dinner is complete without a little dessert. Now the dessert here wasn’t my favorite dessert, but it was still very tasty. Haris ordered the Citrus Ricotta Cheesecake (on the left) and I ordered the Nine Layer Chocolate Cake (on the right). Both tasted great and was light enough after all the other food we ate!
Overall, this is a great place to eat at! If you are in Denver, looking for a great splurge date night, guys/girls night out, or just a very fancy dinner, head to Guard and Grace. You won’t regret it!
