Best New Restaurants 2014

March 2014


Neighborhood: LoHi
Opened: February 2013 


If anyone has had a year to celebrate, it’s chef Justin Brunson. He opened Old Major last February and within months picked up a top new restaurant nod from Bon Appétit, not to mention the number 10 slot on our annual 25 Best Restaurants list. He also received the go-ahead from the health department to cure meats in a glass-enclosed space inside the restaurant’s dining room. Then, in December, Brunson expanded his celebrated Masterpiece Delicatessen to Uptown. Brunson doesn’t cook dainty food—many dishes feature house-butchered pork from Brush and Hotchkiss—but there are delicate nuances such as soft poached eggs, pomegranate demi-glace, and citrus-hazelnut vinaigrette that elevate dishes so they befit the urban dining experience. 3316 Tejon St., 720-420-0622, oldmajordenver.com
