801 Chophouse Restaurant Review

: Substantial slabs of Prime-grade beef are the siren song of this steakhouse that made its mark in the Midwest before staking a claim in Denver. The candlelit dining room, an elegant assemblage of hunter green leather booths, tables topped with white linens and a centerpiece statue of a golden bull, is flanked by a wine display proffering a world-spanning romp of bottles and an opulent bar bedecked with throwback Art Deco accents reminiscent of a 1920s supper club. Everything about 801 Chophouse is luxurious, from the jumbo shrimp cocktail and steak tartare to the 24-ounce porterhouse and Colorado lamb chops. In ritualistic steakhouse fashion, sides are served separately, and include macaroni and cheese lusty with lobster meat, baked cream spinach and creamed corn. Desserts, often an afterthought, are objects of beauty here, thanks to pastry chef Megan Piel, who more than satisfies your sweet spot with finales like her passion fruit baked Alaska, s'mores and peach and cherry galette.
