Will be staying in a hotel near Denver Union station for a couple of days before hopping on the Zephyr and hoping to hear some recommendations of good restaurants?  Medium price range preferred.  

 

Thanks!

Amtrak Unlimited had its Gathering last year in Denver.  The group dinner was at McLoughlin's, which is very close to Union Station.  Although I did not attend, I heard excellent reviews from those that attended.

As a native, I can give a few:

 

  • Next to the station is Rodizio Grill, a Brazilian steak house. Really good stuff. A little pricey but check for their groupon special.
  • Denver Chop House is good as well, that's near there, about 2 blocks north. 
  • Jackson's across from Coors field isn't bad
  • But my main recommendation is to take the 16th street mall shuttle and near the station. It's free. It goes up and down the main mall area. There's a ton of places there you can also check there like the Paramount Cafe, Rialto Cafe, but there's your also your standard fare of chains like Maggiano's, Cheescake Factory, Chili's, Red Robin and the like. It's a pretty decent area, very "touristy" though I go there once in awhile myself.
