Here, we provide a list of famous restaurants and diners in the Denver metro area. Use this guide to satisfy your taste buds when either visiting or living in Denver.

Banzai Restaurant
6655 Leetsdale Dr
Denver, CO 80224
303-329-3366

Description: The chefs at Banzai are passionate about their craft, and the result is notable creations that draw sushi connoisseurs in droves. Located in the triangle of Glendale, Aurora and Cook Park, the neighborhood pioneer's decor is modern and clean with well-appointed tables and a welcoming bar area. The rolls range from tempura-battered to avocado-jacketed, and all are equally satisfying.

Vesta Dipping Grill
1822 Blake Street
Denver, CO 80202
303-296-1970

Description: Vesta is consistently named one of Denver's top restaurants by 5280 magazine, called one of "America's Best" by the venerable Zagat survey and has been lauded by Travel & Leisure and the Wall Street Journal. It's easy to see why Vesta garners such accolades: Blending sophistication with funky cool, the dining room is a mix of wood and wrought iron with accents of sultry red and brown. And though many bill it as a fondue restaurant, the ultra-modern spot wouldn't be caught dead serving up the gloppy cheeses of the fondue past. Rather, Vesta allows diners to pair skewers of meats and vegetables with a choice of 30 dipping sauces, each prepared with a light hand and lots of flavor.

Pete's Kitchen
1962 E. Colfax Ave.
Denver, CO 80206
303-321-3139

Description: Serving comfort food that is darned greasy and downright perfect, Pete's is a late-night staple for filling grub that cures the nocturnal munchies. Top-notch diner food is served all day and throughout the night to regulars spanning several generations. Loyal patrons recognize the same customers frequenting the joint weekly, and first-timers begin an infatuation that can last a lifetime.

CityGrille
321 E Colfax Ave
Denver, CO 80203
303-861-0726

Description: The papers, the Gabby Gourmet and just about everyone else has given CityGrille a nod for best power lunch, best burger, best green chili and best fill-in-the-blank for just about everything else the eatery serves. Open since 1998, CityGrille is a stone's throw from the capitol, making it convenient with a capital "C" -- no pun intended. The only mystery at the grill is why this place isn't jam-packed every night of the week. It's as if CityGrille is a secret that everyone knows about but is loath to give away.

Mercury Café
2199 California St
Denver, CO 80205
303-294-9281

Description: Inside the walls of the infamous Merc you find just about everything you need to add some spice to your life. This place has been a favorite hangout for local artists, poets, playwrights and musicians for as long as we can remember. The menu is an eclectic mix of vegetarian and meaty combinations; they serve breakfast on the weekends and appetizers, supper and desserts at nightly.

Carmine's On Penn
92 S Pennsylvania St
Denver, CO 80209
303-777-6443

Description: Family-style Italian dining draws urban crowds to this well-known Washington Park restaurant. Nestled between rows of homes, Carmine's brings a delightful atmosphere filled with a casual and social feel. The sense of friendly neighborhood ambiance is palpable both in the intimate dining area or the patio, an ideal people-watching spot. Large groups are welcome in the Blue Room, perfect for parties or receptions. The vibe of the staff fully reflects the sociable character of Carmine's.

El Taco de Mexico
714 Santa Fe Dr
Denver, CO 80204
303-623-3926

Description: There is nothing fancy about El Taco, no live entertainment or showy Mexican decor. But then frills aren't needed when a place is always packed with folks out for a real and satisfying bite of true Mexican food for a reasonable price. The kitchen is open to view and patrons can watch the staff preparing the tacos and burritos the eatery is famed for. Favorites include tacos, the chile relleno burrito smothered in spicy green chili and shredded fried pork carnitas, all made with fresh ingredients like cilantro and red chili.

Anthony's Pizza & Pasta
10890 E Dartmouth Ave
Denver, CO 80014
303-306-9755

Description: Partisans of pizza palaces may debate over which crust (thick or thin?) is the best in the Mile High City, but college kids, New York transplants and families forging for reasonably-priced pizzas all swear by these no-frills pie shacks. There are 11 scattered throughout metro Denver, all proffering up a trio of grabby choices -- white, Neapolitan, and Sicilian. Don't come expecting gourmet toppings: It's all about the usual suspects here, such as pepperoni, sausage, Canadian bacon, lots of mozzarella, and standard vegetable options.

McCormick's Fish House & Bar
1659 Wazee St
Denver, CO 80202
303-825-1107

Description: One of the longest-lived eateries in the ever- changing LoDo restaurant scene, McCormick's has persevered with a triple-threat of assets. For starters there's the namesake dining room, where white-shirted servers deliver good old-fashioned service and some of the best seafood in Denver. Fresh fish and shellfish are airlifted in daily, the menu includes steamed, broiled and fried swimmers from points north, south, east and west.

Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House

Description: This A-list bistro caters to a chic and sexy crowd of young urbanites, sports stars and business folk with fat expense accounts and important clients to schmooze. The interior is intimate with soft lighting and dark wood. The servers are as professional, polished and there to anticipate your every need. Featuring bona fide prime beef, the meat is aged to perfection, hand cut and then perfectly prepared and served to enthusiastic reviews.
