Le Grand Bistro and Oyster Bar: Parisian Cuisine in Denver

August 20, 2014 4:04 pm

Le Grand Bistro and Oyster Bar’s antique-chic decor and French cuisine might just transport you from the streets of Denver to the avenues of Paris. The menu features everyday French favorites like steak frites and mussels. A complimentary bread basket is perfect for soaking up the French onion soup.

Diners praise the gnocchi beurre noisette with duck confit, and the lamb shank is also recommended. Desserts are also well-regarded at Le Grand, the Tart Normandy with red wine poached pears and a rosemary creme fraiche is a delightful blend of savory and sweet. Brunch is another favorite meal here; regulars suggest trying a house-made cinnamon roll. The bloody mary bar lets you fill your glass with plenty of veggies and you can have your bottomless mimosa with orange, cranberry or grapefruit juice.

Spruce Up Your Space With Finds From These Two Retailers

August 13, 2014 4:02 pm

Did you know that there are many affordable stores that sell furniture and decorations made specifically for apartment dwellers? Here are two websites to shop for apartment-friendly decor items!

Ikea
Ikea is everyone’s favorite one-stop apartment shop, beloved for its hip, modern aesthetic and impressively low prices. Here you’ll find everything from the perfect trundle bed to an artistic temporary light fixture that won’t jeopardize your security deposit, as well as all of the rugs, photo frames, and plants in between. Ikea also carries a wide variety of space-saving solutions for small spaces, which will help you to organize your space and keep it free of clutter.

West Elm
If your budget is slightly higher, West Elm is an equally stylish website with a bit higher quality selection of apartment decor items. Midcentury modern-inspired sofas and end tables are comfortable and compact enough for an oddly shaped apartment living room, while the wide selection of elaborate bedding, curtains, and rugs add a splash of color and texture to a cookie cutter living space. West Elm also offers a wide assortment of kitchen wares that can maximize space any kitchen.
