Dessert lovers, consider yourself lucky if, at lunch or dinner, you find yourself in Greenwood Village. That’s because the Wooden Table—home to a knock-out tres leches cake—is nearby. Despite crafting a largely Italian menu, chef and co-owner Brett Shaheen deviates to Latin America for this iconic cake. In the wrong hands, tres leches becomes either overly sweet or terribly bland. But Shaheen’s version is soft and delicate—and a perfect foil for the delicious pool of evaporated milk beneath. 2500 E. Orchard Road, Greenwood Village, 303-730-2152, thewoodentablerestaurant.com
