THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Broker Restaurant Review

: This spin-off location of the original Denver Broker caters to the business set conducting big deals at the Denver Tech Center. While it lacks the in-the-bank charm of its mentor, the DTC version does offer the same old-school Victorian rewards, complete with dark woods, starched white tablecloths and other retro touches. It’s also a shade less pricey the original and features a lounge-perfect for wooing high-profile execs and hotshot software designers. And, yes, it also features the revered complimentary bowl of chilled peel-and-eat shrimp that has endeared the house to many. It’s a wonderful touch that weighs in at over a pound---we love it. The house also serves up other riches including a rare-in-Denver ceviche of scallops, and protein-heavy plates of meat and seafood. Filets come in beef and buffalo versions-a nice western nod-the porterhouse is dry-aged and massive. The slabs of halibut and salmon are also popular. Some snicker at the Broker as a place past its prime, with food relying on bygone glory. But longtime locals and big business lunch and dinner crowds don’t seem to agree.
