Recess Beer Garden

Located in the heart of the LoHi neighborhood, this spot offers an oasis to sample the 25 local and international cold brews on tap. Between beers, nibble on the peach and crispy prosciutto salad or tuck into a hearty burger.

Mas Kaos

Mexican meets Italian in this hybrid between two South Pearl favorites, Kaos Pizzeria and Uno Mas Taqueria y Cantina. Sip on a cold brew as you make the decision between a juicy street taco or a melty slice of Napoli wood-grilled pizza—or just get both. 

Denver Diner

This casual, old-school joint on West Colfax is open at all hours and draws in night owls and early birds alike for comforting, home-style entrées. 


This friendly neighborhood bistro and bar is home to contemporary dishes with worldly influences. Order a bowl of ramen with house-made noodles or try the seafood tower, an edible sculpture made up of crab, shrimp, mussels, clams, and several varieties of oysters. For an added bonus, satisfy your sweet tooth by roasting s'mores right at the table. 

Burt's Smokehouse BBQ

Slow-smoked meats and classic barbecue sides are the focus at this family-friendly spot. Try the signature pit master sandwich, which features hot links, brisket, coleslaw, and a pickle. 

First Draft

With tasty eats like brisket grilled cheese sandwiches and an innovative self-serve draft system (featuring 40 taps of craft beer, wine, and cider), First Draft will quickly become your favorite hang out spot.

Souk Shawarma

Chef Jon Robbins of Bistro Barbès puts his twist on the classic shawarma at this Avanti Food & Beverage spot. Customers can choose fillings such as spit-roasted beef or chicken and sauces like carrot harissa and chermoula to build a perfect pita sandwich. 

Farmer Girl

While at Avanti Food & Beverage, try Farmer Girl for farm-to-table food. Accessible and mostly vegetarian, the rotating menu highlights locally grown produce. 


Chef Marco Gonzalez (a veteran of Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe) brings his unique take on tapas-style cuisine to Avanti Food & Beverage. You'll find satisfying platters of paella for lunch and Mexican-influenced small plates (including pork "pibil" with black bean sauce, grilled pineapple, and blue corn angel hair) in the evening. 

Poco Torteria

The sister restaurant to Pinche Tacos, Poco serves Mexican-style tortas stuffed with big, bold flavors. Try the steak-stuffed OG T, and make sure to end your meal with an order of the churros.
