The Corner Office DenverYou don’t have to travel the world to try some of the best comfort foods from afar… you can get them at The Corner Office. Their creative menu pairs international and traditional flavors from North, South, East and West for a unique dining experience. And the martini list is just as inventive as it is delicious.

As part of our girlfriend getaway at the trendy, Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver, my girlfriend and I had dinner at The Corner Office, located right off the lobby. The restaurant echoes the mid-century, modern décor of the Curtis, transporting you back through time and into the 60’s, but with a modern twist. Every inch of the restaurant and bar screams hipster, blending high-style with low key.

The Corner Office Steak FritesOur extra-patient waiter, Douglas was amazing (be sure and ask for him!). He served as our tour guide, answering endless questions as to what was what and from where. We decided to visit Italy and ordered the Beef Carpaccio and Supplì al Telefono to start. My friend then dipped into Paris with Steak Frites and I kept one boot in Italy and dined on Lobster Mac & Cheese in a cognac cream, marscapone, asiago and parmigiano-reggiano sauce.

The Corner Office dulche de leche cheesecakeWe couldn’t have been more satiated after our little European tour, but on Douglas’ recommendation, we had to try their award-winning, Flamenco Foreplay, and you should too. I mean, seriously, that scene from When Harry Met Sally? That was us. This is the best cheesecake you’ll ever have melt in your mouth. It’s a dulce de leche cheesecake served with a lemon sorbet and Pedro Ximenez – a dark, rich sherry. Heaven! If you stop in for anything, stop in for this.

The Corner Office DenverI just couldn’t make room for one more thing, but will be back in for The Corner Office’s own hand-spun, cotton candy. They have a new flavor every day. I bet it tastes good with a martini.
