Restaurant Roundup: Palizo and 2017 in Review
January 1, 2018 • Restaurants
Happy New Year! I had a long list of restaurants I wanted to try in 2017, but alas, if there was one thing I learned in 2017, it’s many things are completely out of my control. So yes, life got in the way, and I didn’t make it to very many new restaurants at all. I’m okay with that – there’s always 2018. At the bottom of this post are some of the places I want to try this year.
Of the few new places I did try this year, it seems most were Italian. Whether that’s because so many of the good new restaurants happy to be Italian or because I have an affinity for Italian food, I don’t know. The last Italian one I went to was Palizo, which took over the 1472 space on Pearl St. in Denver.
I don’t know why, but I wasn’t expecting much. Perhaps because the space has been a revolving door of restaurants over the years. Maybe because I have high standards for Italian food. I’m not sure. But it was surprisingly good. So good I’m returning soon for dinner with friends. And although I didn’t photograph it, the chef gave me his recipe for Bourbon Ice Cream – you’ll be seeing that one day soon I promise!

Heading out with a larger group of friends for a fun dinner out? I’m big fan of letting someone else drive so you can enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine with your meal. Consider Colorado Limousine Company if you’re looking for a party bus for your next night out!
