I recently flew to Colorado for a weekend of Sister in law madness, thrifting and food! Let’s just say I wasn’t disappointing in any department!
Today I’ll reminisce about my inappropriate love affair with a Panini and bowl of French fries! First let me set the stage! My Sister in Law, Karrilynn, calls me a few days before our adventures and tells me she found the perfect restaurant we MUST visit! Being the foodie that I am I was all on board! Who wouldn’t love a restaurant that has these 3 major highlights…
- Serves only Appetizers!
- AND Desserts!
- And is owned and operated by Food Networks own Keegan Gerhard of Food Challenge!
First things first! The menu is the only bad thing about this place (wink wink!)! It’s next to impossible to narrow in on what you want to devourer so I suggest going with friends, ordering a ton of stuff and sharing! There are that many tempting choices!
We started off with:
roasted asparagus ∙ prosciutto ∙ fontina ∙ small arugula salad
applewood bacon ∙ avocado ∙ white cheddar ∙ tomato ∙ small salad
Both Paninis were out of this world! It was a toss up on which one we liked the best! The salad was the perfect partner in crime with its light and flavorful vinaigrette!
Our next indulgent will tempt you to lick your monitor so resist with all your might!
Dessert time was almost as euphoric as dinner! ( AGAIN…those fries!!!) D Bar is known for it’s heavenly plated desserts! We saw so many amazing dishes pass our table and it took all that I had in me not to dive across the patio and steal a donut hole or sneak a spoonful of Creme Brulee off a perfect strangers plate!! “Quick! Look over there!”
Karrilynn had to try the highly recommended Chocolate Cake and Milkshake! From the moment we took our first bite we knew exactly why it was a top seller! If your weakness is chocolate then I tell you what! This will for sure do you in! Is that little milkshake not the cutest thing ever!
And just our luckKeegan himself was on site making the whole experience all the more incredible!! When we first meet him we were blown away at how amazingly kind he was. He joined us at our table and indulged us in conversation! He recommended dished, talked about the menu he was working on and then invited us behind the line to see the kitchen, meet his beautiful wife, Lisa, and take a sneak peak at a Challenge Cake they are working on for a Toy Story 3 themed episode of Food Challenge!
Ummm yeah! Did you just hear all that! We got the V. I. P. treatment…or so I think ! I wouldn’t be surprised if Keegan is that nice to all his guests! Seriously he was amazing!
So the moral of the story….
D Bar is a must when visiting Denver! If you pass through this beautiful state without stopping in it would be like visiting France and not seeing the Eiffel Tower or listening to your favorite Michael Jackson CD and not trying to do the moon walk! Do your stomach a favor and hit it hard! No holding back! Order three appetizers and 4 desserts! Trust me…you’ll love every bite!
