Penrose Room Is Only Colorado Restaurant With Forbes Five-Star Rating

Of the 23 best restaurants in the U.S., just one is in Colorado. That's according to new rankings released by Forbes, which bestowed its coveted five-star rating on the Penrose Room at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs.

Forbes calls The Penrose Room, which has been named a AAA five-diamond restaurant for the last 35 years, "a spectacular dining experience."

While the Penrose room was the only Colorado restaurant to earn five stars, four other local establishments gained four-star status from Forbes. See which made the cut below.
