Mizuna is one of Denver's most celebrated restaurants. The crisp white tablecloths and thoughtfully spaced tables all lend an air of intimacy and occasion. Chef-owner Frank Bonanno's seasonal cuisine capitalizes on exquisite ingredients, and service is prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable. Don't miss the decadent beef Wellington or the legendary lobster mac and cheese.
