The D-elightful Dbar

Hi all,

Barb and I went out to the Dbar ( www.dbardesserts.com ) for lunch and a few take home desserts on Friday. The D bar is headed up by Keegan Gerhard of Food Network fame and of course they serve fantastic desserts all day and some great looking plated desserts after 6 pm. One thing on the menu that caught my eye though we were in too early to try was a item on the dessert menu that was called "That molten cake thingy every one has (ours is steamed with a truffle inside). Now that's worth going back for after 6pm!


We were there about lunch time after going down to Channel 9 News and talking to the people behind www.denver.metromix.com where we will soon be freelancing for them, which we are very excited about. Make sure to look at their site soon for some future entries from us.

For my lunch I had a pair of Kobe Beef Sliders.


brioche ∙ drunken onions ∙ white cheddar ∙ garlic aioli ∙ parm fries
Perfectly cooked with a nice little bit of fries. I mean really, all that needs to be said is "Kobe Beef" burgers - thats it.

Barbara had a Baked Macaroni and Cheese.


4 cheeses ∙ cheese nips & panko crumbs ∙ small salad
Very cheesey and creamy. The cheese was so stringy and gooey and delicious. Nice comfort food on a rainy day.

The cost for my 2 sliders were $10 and Barbs Mac and Cheese was $7 and for the quality of food was well worth it. We left with several deserts to try for example, a lemon tart, peanut butter cup, a truffle, a interesting twist on a rice crispy treat, a brown and white brownie and a chocolate pecan cookie. I really meant to get some pictures of them but the chocolate pecan cookie fell victim to a small fit of the munchies on the way home and the rest dissapeared quickly that day (for Jonathan at least, Barb had more restraint - hers were gone Saturday) and I think that says plenty about the quality of them. The restaurant itself is located at 1475 east 17th Ave in Denver and is defintly worth a look!

Since this is just a lunch and dessert spot I have not included a ranking, but you could not go wrong by giving this place a go!

Thanks again for coming by and as always if you have any questions or comments please let us know.
