Best Brunch in Denver, CO – Denver is the capital of Colorado, and an American metropolis dating way back to the Old West era. At this time Colorado enjoyed a boom after gold was discovered in the mountains. Denver became the hub for railroad connections around the country. Denver’s nickname is the “Mile High City” with reference to its elevation. It proudly sits exactly 5,280 feet above sea level.
From a culinary point of view Denver is known for Rocky Mountain oysters (which aren’t actually oysters at all – see below!), steakhouse classics, and its famed omelette. These favorites continue to take their place on the local food scene, but Denver’s 160+ years of culinary history have resulted in some other iconic dishes including seafood potstickers and Colorado pizza. So you’re in the know – Rocky Mountain Oysters, which is Colorado’s most famous dish, is definitely not seafood. They’re actually bull testicles, fried and served with a variety of dips. And they are apparently divine.
