Luxury Denver destination Cherry Creek Shopping Center is a magnet for fashionistas, who come to scoop up the latest at the likes of BCBG, Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany. For sustenance, of course, there are a number of restaurants catering to high-end tastes.
At the top of the food chain is 801 Chophouse, which is at the valet entrance of Cherry Creek Shopping Center. It's a classic steakhouse open for lunch and dinner, plus the lounge is always a popular stopover for cocktails. The Iowa-based 801 Restaurant Group showcases a New York-style steakhouse in 801 Chophouse, and it's also the brand behind Pig & Finch Gastropub, and 801 Fish.
Seafood lovers should delight in the appetizer selections, which range from lobster corn chowder and lobster corn dogs to pancetta-wrapped scallops. Steaks and chops, of course, are plentiful. They include a 16-ounce, Tuscan-style ribeye to a 24-ounce Porterhouse.
