Victory American Grill & Bar is located in Denver’s historic Baur Building, originally home to a confectionary and candy shop. It has been claimed that this very spot was the location where the first ice cream soda was served. The interior reflects the buildings history – high ceiling, spacious room – with some modern acoutrements – mirrors, private booths. Though it bills itself as American, Greek cuisine shares a portion of the menu: Greek Meatballs & Linquini and others. Try the Mac-N-3 Cheeses (gouda, chevre, and cheddar) with fried pickles. For dessert, ask for a confection inspired by one of Baur’s old recipes. -Theresa Ludwick
