“We knew that Denver was a great market and felt that the Cherry Creek neighborhood was so special. We couldn’t have found a more perfect place than this residential area set amongst unique shops that’s walking distance to everything. It creates a community bond,” says Wahlstedt. “We couldn’t be happier to be here.” The wildly popular and critically lauded French restaurant immediately struck a chord with celebrities and affluent types when it first launched in New York’s Upper East Side in 1986. After the original Le Bilboquet closed and relocated three blocks south of the original nook in 2013, the restaurant quickly regained its legions of loyal followers and supplied the demand for a second location to open in Dallas shortly thereafter. A third location followed in the fall of 2014 in Atlanta and a fourth locale in Sag Harbor, New York in 2017. The Cherry Creek restaurant is Le Bilboquet’s fifth and certainly not its last.

Offering classic favorites like PEI mussels, Wagyu beef tartare, veal scallopini, their legendary Cajun chicken, crème brûlée, and chocolate mousse, there will also be rotating local beers on tap, signature cocktails and an extensive wine list featuring French and American selections. Delgrange explains, “We selected Denver due to its popularity that has rapidly increased its population. We’ve had countless recommendations from our current customers to go to Colorado and came across an opportunity we couldn’t pass up. We’re excited to be part of an excellent portfolio of fine dining and award-winning eateries.” Aesthetically, Le Bilboquet Denver is as artistic a restaurant as you will ever encounter, courtesy of Carolina von Humboldt of CvH Interiors in New York. It’s a stunning, luxurious assembly of natural light, outfitted with custom blue velvet banquettes, a twocolor terrazzo floor and a revolving collection of paintings and photography by locally and nationally acclaimed artists. These artworks will adorn the main dining room, above the fireplace mantle of the lounge and pewter bar area as the restaurant is filled with fresh cut flowers and plants while the charming exterior patio transports guests to a Parisian sidewalk café with French bistro woven rattan chairs and tables.
