We first went to White Chocolate Grill for Valentine’s Day in 2009. And the story goes something like this….
Veggie Hubby was talking with a client the day before Valentine’s Day and the client ask what our plans were. Veggie Hubby relayed that he had forgotten to get a reservation at restaurant and had tried for the last few days to get one without success, so we would probably just go get a pizza some place. His client thought this was a bad idea and teased Veggie Hubby a lot. When they got off the phone his client proceeded to call restaurants all around the Denver area, even though the client was located in NC. He eventually called White Chocolate and convinced them to take one more reservation for us. He then called Veggie Hubby and let him know what time our reservation was.
We had not heard of White Chocolate before this. In fact the restaurant it 40 miles from our house and located on the other side of Denver from us. We were so touched by the gesture that even though there were snow flurries that night we still headed to the restaurant. When we arrived we were seated promptly and was served one of the best meals we have ever had. To top it off the desserts as you may have guessed by the restaurant name were fabulous. The card included here is a Thank You card I made and sent to Gary’s client. Not only did he find and make a reservation for us, he gave the restaurant his credit card and the meal was totally on him. What a great Valentines memory!
Since that meal we have made it a point to go to the restaurant a couple of times a year. Without traffic it takes us a little over an hour to get there, so its not some place we can go to often. We have never been disappointed.
This year since Valentine’s day again fell on a Saturday like back in 2009 we decided to celebrate Valentines Day at White Chocolate again. White Chocolate Grill has several options for Vegetarians, including a quinoa veggie burger and salads. Veggie Hubby does eat Salmon once in a while and White Chocolate makes a wonderful Atlantic Grilled Salmon. Veggie Hubby loves their homemade fries as well.
This year I had baby back ribs and Veggie Hubby had salmon. We then shared the White Chocolate Brownie. White Chocolate was not taking any walk-ins. They were totally booked up until after 10:00pm. I’m so glad Veggie Hubby called 3 weeks ago to get us a reservation.
Below I shared pictures of what we had this year as well as some photos of some of the other food we have tried. It was all delicious.
They also have a pretty extensive gluten free menu. Check out their menu here.
