A Great Place to Eat at DIA.

I travel a lot. Sometimes weeks at a time, only home on the weekends. Any time I head west I have to stop in DIA. One of the biggest issues I have is that there really isn't any place that rings my bell for something to eat. There isn't really a place that I just want to go back eat again one my next layover... until now.

I was on my way back from Fargo, ND (another post on that subject) and had a layover in Denver for 90 minutes. As usual I was traveling at dinner time and quite hungry. Where to eat? Wolfgang Puck? McDonalds? Subway? Hmm, there is something I haven't seen before, Pour La France.

The menu was pretty much a standard fare for a french-style street restaurant with sandwiches, soup, and entrees. I checked the menu and liked what I saw. They have a Grilled Chicken Sandwich that would be perfect for my diet. Chicken, Romain Lettuce, Swiss Cheese, Tomato (ditch that, thank you) and dijonnaise with a side Ceasar salad. The bread was nicely toasted and the grilled chicken was hot, moist, and tender. The salad as cut in bite-size pieces with grated cheese over the top. Interesting note about the site I linked is that most of the people were complaining about the quality of the food going south, but I found that my food was quite good and there were no issues with wilted lettuce or thin cheese.

The place was busy, but the server was friendly and helpful. She was attentive, but not overly so. I hate when they constantly ask if you are OK, or if there is anything they can get you. But I also hate when the stop by log enough to take your order, drop it off, and drop off the check. There is a happy medium where they do check on you, but for the most part you can dine peaceably.

It is located on the second floor of the second terminal, across from Wolfgang Puck's restaurant. Take time to sit in the main area, or if you are short on time, they also have a quick service area to get anything from their menu.

Go visit and enjoy them for yourself.
