A Spot Where You Can Always Get A White Tablecloth Meal For Even Less!

Written by Brooke Wagner DENVER (CBS4) – Sautéed Alamosa Striped Bass. Hand Rolled Egg Pappardelle Pasta. Cinnamon Scented Ricotta Mousse Crepes. Sound tasty? You can have it all — and more — for $14. Intrigued?

Assignments Restaurant is a training ground for Colorado’s next great chefs. Nestled in the Denver Design District off Broadway (East of Interstate 25) inside the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Colorado, Assignments is one of the students’ final rotations before graduation. It’s $14 for lunch and $21 per person for a dinner that buys you six courses from the tasting menu. The restaurant is particularly proud of its flight of three wines for $7.50.

“A lunch like this elsewhere, including the wine, would probably be $60 to $70 a person,” said Sommelier Charles Anderson. “A dinner like this would probably be $80 to $90 a person. So this is absolutely the best kept secret in town.”

From the menu, “Assignments Restaurant offers cuisine of the highest standard and presents the gift of food in the most nourishing of conditions. Our menu is influenced by classic French and new American cuisine and consists of authentic ingredients, artistically prepared by future chefs.”

The restaurant does only one seating at lunch and one at dinner, so reservations are highly recommended at www.opentable.com.

    This seems like the perfect way for the cost-conscious foodie to have their Cinnamon Scented Ricotta Mousse, and eat it too!

    Thanks for the great idea, Brooke!
