Dining at Beckon is like going to a dinner party at a friend’s house, assuming the type of people you know like to roast up squab and top hakurei turnips with trout roe. Denver’s first tasting menu-only restaurant was opened by people who worked at Frasca, Boulder’s best Italian restaurant, and they bring that same eye for hospitality to the bungalow-turned-18-seat restaurant. (Cold? Someone will bring you a blanket. Don’t want to go home yet? Linger on the patio around the blazing fire pit.) Plan ahead for this one, as the eight-course weekend dinners typically book up at least a month out.
