Denver Central Market

This RiNo marketplace features 11 vendors with dining options ranging from ceviche to ice cream. Take your pick from Crema Bodega, Culture Meet & Cheese, Curio, Green Seed, High Point Creamery, Izzio Artisan Bakery, Silva's Fish Market, SK Provisions, Temper Chocolates, Vero Italian, and the Local Butcher. 

The Goods

Whether you're a vegetarian or a full-fledged carnivore, the Goods has something for you. The wood-fired fare includes everything from burgers to vegetarian lasagna to braised short ribs. 

Adrift Tiki Bar

The team behind Little Man Ice Cream has given Broadway's tiki bar a makeover. You'll find the same beach-ready rum drinks and kitschy setting, but with upgraded food (try and fresh poke). For dessert, opt for the pineapple upside cake with rum raisin ice cream.

City & Country Deli & Sausage Co.

This quaint shop (the sister restaurant to Roaming Buffalo BBQ) offers smartly crafted artisan sandwiches, from roast turkey on rosemary bread to molasses-glazed ham on seven-grain. We recommend the Assembly Worker: slow-cooked corned beef on rye with a housemade Thousand Island dressing and smoked cabbage. 

Rackhouse

Sharing the Bindery on Blake space with Bierstadt Lagerhaus and C-Squared Ciders, the Rackhouse's menu focuses on foods that pair well with beer and cider. Try the indulgent mac and cheese, which combines six creamy cheeses and is finished with a topping of pork "dust."

The Pig & the Sprout

Tucked behind Union Station, this dichotomous eatery offers something for everyone. Order the sliced brisket with grilled scallions from the Pig side of the menu, or opt for lighter fare, such as a fresh crudité platter, from the Sprout side.

Desmond Bar and Grill

Chef Sean Kelly brings his creative, Mediterranean-influenced small plates to this comfortable Park Hill spot. Try the potted salmon with radishes and grilled bread.

Spatola Italian Restaurant

The owner of Dolce Sicilia brings his authentic Italian cuisine to Highland. Start with the crispy arancini (fried risotto balls stuffed with cheese) and don't miss the pasta carbonara.

Ste. Ellie

Head to this chic subterranean bar beneath Colt & Gray for expertly crafted cocktails and inventive bar snacks. 

Eureka!

You'll find an thoroguhly American menu with a modern twist at this casual eatery. Grab a burger and a craft beer, or opt for the lobster tacos.
