If you’re visiting Denver or anywhere else within an hour’s drive of Boulder, than I highly suggest you make a reservation at Frasca. The owner is the former Master Sommelier of all the Thomas Keller’s restaurants. And if you’ve ever seen the documentary Somm, you’d know just how impressive that is, because the Master Sommelier exam is one of the hardest to pass on the face of the earth. So hard, only 179 people have managed to pass it in almost 50 years.
So, suffice it to say that the wine pairing here is a moral imperative. And while it’s easily the best pairing I’ve ever had, the food is pretty damn impressive as well. The crudo was tops, only made infinitely better by a wine that was like a Renée Zellweger to its Tom Cruise.
Same goes for the poblano spiced wagyu, but the menu is constantly in flux, so rather than listen to what you can no longer eat, start trying to get your tush at a table.
