Beyond the unbeatable shopping for Valentine’s Day outfits and gifts, Colorado Mills and Denver West Village, an adjacent open-air center, offer incredible choices for dinner dates. Start at Summit House for a “Dirty Little Secret” martini and appetizers. Enjoy an indulgent dinner of wood-fired pizza at Racca’s Pizzeria Napoletana. The Umbria and Toscana are deliziosa! Savor dessert at home from Whole Foods Market; such as chocolate dipped strawberries with sparkling wine are a lovely cap to the evening.
