The Curtis Club in Denver

The Curtis Club is a new dining spot that just recently opened in downtown Denver.    The decor is in keeping with the old west.  The facade is made up of weathered re-claimed lumber.
The theme is continued inside with some Victorian chairs and a sofa upholstered in red,  red and gold antler pattern wallpaper, big chunky wood benches and wide plank wood floors.  The R and B music in the background is a great touch.
The wood tables are highly lacquered and set with a water glass that gives off the illusion that there is water already in it.
The room has an assortment of  ranch motifs with its tractor seat bar stools and wagon wheels set into a few tables.  Behind the bar is a large photo of a serene lake scene.
I had the the Blackened Seabass Sandwich which was delicious.  If you do not like spicy food, have the kitchen hold back on some of the seasoning.  The greens, basil ailoli and roasted pickled tomato were the perfect combination with the seabass inside a yummy Ciabatta roll. The fries that day were good but they could have been a bit more crispier which we have had before.
My husband's favorite is the the Hanger Steak Sandwich served on a Ciabatta roll.    I have heard the Bison Bolognese is excellent.
Next time we will go for dinner and there are several items on the menu that really peak my interest.  To Share: the Rabbit Rillette.  To Continue: Spring Tree Farms Rabbit, Maple Leaf Farm Duck Plate, Summit Creek lamb Rack or the Cedar River Grass Fed Beef Tenderloin. And the prices are certainly reasonable.  I hope the room will not be too crowded, with all the hard surfaces, it can be pretty noisy.  There are a few tables outside, so that would be a good option once the weather warms up a bit.
