Sunday Comfort at Venue

By |

Sunday brunch should be built for comfort, and one of Denver’s most inviting options can be found at Venue Bistro. The friendly Highland hangout serves a combination of traditional favorites—eggs benedict, French toast, corned beef hash—along with more unexpected mid-day meals, such as mussels and short ribs.

I began with a glass of the stone fruit Prosecco, a generous serving of the dry Italian sparkling wine served with splashes of peach liqueur and orange juice, and slices of Palisade peaches, plums and apricots. The drink’s fruity effervescence balanced out the slightly spicy braised pork, a last-until-dinner meal that came with a potato hash, fried egg, and Hollandaise. (If you like a runny yolk, as I do, ask for your egg over-easy. Mine was overcooked.) The entire meal, with tip, was a reassuring $21.

Hint: If it’s warm, arrive by 11 a.m. to snag one of the sidewalk tables. And if you want the lazy Sunday spirit to last all day, pop into Mondo Vino for a bottle of Zardetto, the same Prosecco Venue uses, for just $12.
