Ophelia's Electric Soapbox

Housed in a historic building (which was once a brothel), the latest endavor from Justin Cucci's Edible Beats team features quirky design details and a stage for live music. The "gastro-brothel" menu encompasses globally-inspired pub fare like flatbreads, small plates, and stone-fire skillets. Try the green chile cornbread with goat cheese and honey butter.

Wurstküche

This sausage and beer hall serves up imported brews on tap alongside a wide array of sausages and Belgian fries. Stick to the classics with a bratwurst or lean toward the adventurous with the rattlesnake, rabbit, and jalapeño sausage. Whatever main you choose, add a side of truffle oil-glazed fries.

Lyfe Kitchen

This flexitarian menu focuses on fresh, healthy choices with options including vegan and gluten-free bites.

Blackbelly Market

With a menu focused on rustic American food with a contemporary touch, chef Hosea Rosenberg's restaurant offers modern variations on classic dishes like the prawns and pork—a take on shrimp and grits. The full-service restaurant also features a butcher shop and grab-and-go market.

The Bistro at Stapleton

Starting with a European-style continental breakfast, the Bistro's menu morphs into house-made charcuterie and cheese plates, tapas, and paninis as the day goes on. Try the rillettes or country pate, both made in house.

Blooming Beets Kitchen

This Boulder restaurant is dedicated to serving Paleo-diet friendly bites. Try the aerie nest: sweet potato bacon cakes, made with mashed sweet potatoes, bacon, and poached eggs topped in Hollandaise.

Dada Art Bar

The little sister of Iain Chisholm's neighboring Italian restaurant, Amerigo Delicatus, Dada Art Bar aims to combine artful coffee, spirits, charcuterie and cheese platters with local art. 

La Cave

La Cave—located inside the Sheraton Denver West Hotel—is a wine-centric restaurant that riffs on upscale continental cuisine. Order up the New York steak au poivre or the seared sea scallops.
