Ladies and gentlemen, we are back at it for the 2015-16 school year! I know you missed us. Well, at least me since Logan decided to ditch out this quarter for some Chinese adventure. Anyway, have no fear because I experienced something new without him.
If you find yourself on someone else’s budget, looking for a place to eat dinner, where do you go? Well you would be wrong because the correct answer is the Downtown Aquarium. Why on earth would you go to an aquarium for food you ask?
After extensive research it turns out that the Aquarium is quite the place. Not only do they have a fish or two, but they also have a couple of tigers, birds, other non-water-bound creatures, and a restaurant. While all of the rest of this wonderful stuff is just fine and dandy, the restaurant part is what caught my eye. Or should I say stomach? I was going to dinner with 69 other people and it was one of the only places in Denver that could accommodate a group of that size for a more or less reasonable price. Needless to say, I was rather nervous going into the whole ordeal. I was afraid that the cool factor of dinning in an aquarium might not compensate for the food quality if it were to be terrible. Luckily this risk had quite the reward!
Though we only had a limited menu, the selections were all amazing (I know because I ended up having a plate of each). From bacon wrapped shrimp to fish tacos, the Aquarium really exceeded my expectations. Normally I’m not a huge fan of seafood but I thoroughly enjoyed every bite. Don’t worry though, because they also serve land-bound options. I will definitely be dining there again and take advantage of their full menu because I’m sure they won’t fail to impress.
Meanwhile, with every delicious bite, you got to experience the amazing underwater theme. One of the walls was a giant fish tank with an assortment of exotic and colorful fish swimming around. On top of all of this, the service was amazing. The staff was very tentative to the entire group, making sure everyone was comfortable and set for drinks or whatever it may have been. I was thoroughly impressed with their due diligence and overall rapid service.
To top it all off, they have an incredibly convenient location just off of I-25. Unlike most locations downtown, they have parking, and a lot of it. Don’t have a car, not to worry; they are relatively close to the Elitch Gardens light rail station on the E-Line. Either way, getting there shouldn’t be the problem.
Collectively, the Aquarium is quite the impressive establishment. I highly recommend that you all go and visit whether it be for food, the fish, or even both. Take an adventure with your next meal out and enjoy yet another one of Denver’s amazing options. Cheers to a brilliant dining experience, see you all there!
