Place Vendôme, considered a favorite among Parisians, is a renowned historic square located in the heart of Paris. Once you set foot in the charming Bistro Vendôme nook of Larimer Square you see exactly why they are Denver’s version of said Parisian gem.

Fun fact: On Thursdays they feature French Classics, and for the month of June it is Mousse au Citron.

L’Amour is in the air. “With exquisite European bistro fare on the table and twinkling crystal chandeliers hanging above, gorgeously appointed… LeRoux is one of the most romantic restaurants in town. Reserve the curved back booth for the privacy it affords and a great view of the marble-topped bar and front dining area.” – 5280 Magazine
