Vesta Participates Project Angel Heart's Dining Out for Life for 12th Consecutive Year

Vesta Participates Project Angel Heart's Dining Out for Life for 12th Consecutive Year

"In 1991, when Charles Robbins returned to Denver from Los Angeles, he found that friends living with HIV/AIDS were wasting away before his eyes. He founded Project Angel Heart in response, modeling it after Project Angel Food, a Los Angeles organization where he had been a volunteer.  In 2018, Project Angel Heart plans to deliver 385,000 medically modified meals to at least 3,000 Coloradans living with life-threatening illness in Denver and Colorado Springs."

#SnowpeningDay still a hit at Vesta

Black and purple shirts, hats, beads, streamers, poured into the restaurant to escape the chilly 25 degree weather.  Snow fell again after the game's completion, and it felt more like a winter wonderland rather than a spring day.

Vesta prides itself on having one of the best chefs in all of Denver, Colorado: Chef Nicholas Kayser.  Chef Kayser's classical training and worldly experience are just as refined, sophisticated, and eclectic as Vesta's cuisine has ever been.  As such, he challenges the team in the kitchen on a weekly basis to develop a composed, bold, and worldly dish to offer to you.  Restrained to ethnicity, country, or style, the team has the ability to look at some of the unique cuisines in the world and refine them into a three course meal which we are able to offer at $35.  Wine Director, Michael Casey, then takes the time to thoughtful pair some of his favorite wines to the dish.  All of this comes into fruition every Monday evening.  You can review the menu every week on our website, www.vestadenver.com

 

So take the chance to come out on a Monday night.  We only make a limited number of these dishes, so make your reservations and let us know that you're joining us for Monday Supper.  We look forward to surprising you every week with something new, fresh, and with that touch of Vesta that you look forward to.

Denver Restaurant Week is HERE!

Denver Restaurant Week is HERE!

It's that time of year again, where Denver's restaurants, both fresh and seasoned, band together to offer the Mile High City a taste of it's dynamic culinary scene.  We at Vesta look forward to this week every year.  This is our opportunity to turn folks onto what we do every night: throw a party for the city, serve some great food and libations, and that genuine and dependable service that you've come to know and love. 

Restaurant Week is everywhere right now.  You've probably seen blurbs about it on your social media feeds, TV stations, and read about it on your favorite blogs (like this one!)  5280 Magazine was gracious enough to identify Vesta as the best Restaurant Week restaurant for "the sophisticated gourmet."  Gourmet or not, our team from the chefs to the bar to the wine director have really put together a great spread for the next week.

This year, Vesta chose to showcase some of our favorite dishes, like Chef Kayser's Chicken Tikka Masala and Sous Chef Steven Cox's house-made burrata.  Mmmmmm, we're getting hungry just thinking about them over here!  But we also brought back some of our classics, like Pastry Chef Nadine Donovan's Vietnamese coffee mousse.  It's a choc-o-holic's dream!  And of course, our full menu is available in tandem with the Restaurant Week menu, so you can still get your favorite dishes all week long.  Don't be shy, this is a great time of year to join us for dinner.  Classics, favorites, both new and old, are what we're all about.  We'll see you this week, and thanks for joining us in the palpable excitement that is Denver Restaurant Week!

Vesta Welcomes the 2018 National Western Stockshow

Vesta Welcomes the 2018 National Western Stockshow

Welcome 2018 National Western Stock Show attendees! Believe it or not, folks from around the nation have been traveling to the Mile High City to buy and sell livestock for 111 years, making it one of Denver’s truest traditions. And let’s not forget the judging competitions and rodeo, including mutton busting, something our own Sous Chef, Steven Cox, was a champ in during his youth.

The other great tradition is the the amazing evenings out during the stock show, a time when Denver restaurants meet a tidal wave of hungry visitors whom we only get to see this once a year. We look forward to meeting the lofty expectations from these discerning diners once again. Vesta, despite surroundings that are a bit more hip than the traditional steak house, proudly serves locally-sourced beef from Harris Ranch of the Western Slope, and beautiful lamb chops from Fort Morgan.  Chef Nick Kayser likes big cuts of meat too, so we’ll be offering a large porterhouse in tandem with our whole menu until the stock show ends on January 21st. To match, our wine list is vast–we’ll be ready to pop some gorgeous bottles to pair.

Service is friendly, warm, personal, and professional, part of the reason Vesta has thrived in the historic Lodo district of downtown Denver for over 20 years.

So, we hope yo see you all again at Vesta this year! Like the NWSS, we’re a local staple, and have been for years and years.  Here’s to a great 2018 show!

DENVER PRESS EATS UP VESTA'S NEW MENU!

With so many new restaurants in the Denver area, the local food press have never had so much great food to review and report on. So, we took it as a huuuuge compliment when DiningOut, 5280, Westword, Eater, 303 Magazine, and the Denver Post all had high marks for Vesta's first menu under new Executive Chef, Nicholas Kayser.
