4 Colorado restaurants named to Yelp’s top 100 list.

Yelp’s 2024 ‘Top 100 US Restaurants’ list just came out and features four Colorado spots, with three of them being in Denver and the other in Lafayette.

The top named restaurant in Colorado is Tandoori Kitchen (199 W S. Boulder Road, Lafayette), which ranked as the No. 41 overall on Yelp’s list. The Indian and Nepalese restaurant, which opened in 2018, boasts 4.8 stars and particularly lists its “made-from-scratch” vegetable samosas, thukpa and Himalayan sweet orange chicken.

Guard and Grace (1801 California St., Denver) at No. 94 with 4.5 stars. This is the ultimate date night spot in the Central Business District. Guard and Grace occupies an enviable location at the base of the 56-floor Brookfield Building in downtown Denver. You can either order the Yelp-mentioned prime or Wagyu or try out its raw bar. Steaks are the obvious draw but a full seafood bar is a close second. Artichoke and spinach dip is a rich and flavorful starter before tucking in to filet mignon with lime smashed potatoes and chili butter. Chocolate Luxardo cherry cheesecake sided by a scoop of honey Bourbon ice cream is nothing short of indulgent.

Yelp said it determines the best places to eat through user suggestions, restaurant ratings, number of reviews and volume of submissions, with geographic representation based on equal share of submissions of top-rated restaurants nationally. Yelp also further curated the list with the expertise of its Community Managers around the country to finalize the rankings.

You won’t go wrong trying any of these.
