Dining Al Fresco on Larimer Square offers dinner under the lights

June 13, 2014

Larimer Square’s restaurants are turning up the heat and taking to the streets once again this summer with Dining Al Fresco, the block’s outdoor dining series starting Saturday.

This culinary experience takes throngs of diners out onto Larimer Street to enjoy inspired menus under the Square’s twinkling canopy of lights. Dining Al Fresco on Larimer Square kicks off with happy hour festivities and live music, which give way to special meals created by some of Colorado’s best chefs.

“Larimer Square is home to the best restaurants in Denver and one of the most noteworthy collections of regionally-exclusive, chef-owned restaurants in the U.S.,” said Jeff Hermanson, of Larimer Associates. “Diners expect more from the restaurants on our block and our outdoor dining series is a great example of the creativity Larimer Square chefs and restaurant owners display in their approach to local dining.”

Dining Al Fresco will be held on three Saturday evenings throughout the summer: tomorrow, July 19 and Aug. 16, all beginning at 5 p.m. Reservations are available through participating restaurants, which include Bistro Vendôme, the Capital Grille, Corridor 44, Cru – A Wine Bar, Green Russell, Ocean Prime, Osteria Marco, Rioja, Russell’s Smokehouse, TAG, TAG Raw Bar, Tamayo and Ted’s Montana Grill.

“Our guests really look forward to dining outside under the iconic Larimer Square canopy of lights,” said Jennifer Jasinski, executive chef at Rioja and Bistro Vendôme. “You really feel like you’re in a big city when you have dinner in the middle of Larimer Street with hundreds of fellow diners.”

Dining Al Fresco on Larimer Square rounds out the Summer on the Square event series, which also features Le Jardin Secret, a weekly, French-inspired chefs’ market.
