Ste. Ellie

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

Acero

Customize your own fajita experience at this eatery, where there are more than 30 vegetable and 15 protein options available.

Latigo

Inspired by chef Ignacio Leon's rich heritage, this restaurant mixes traditional Mexican fare with modern touches. Try the molcajetes, pescado a la Veracruzana, or camarones poblanos. 

Mister Tuna

Troy Guard's chic new RiNo spot offers modern, eclectic cooking inspired by his Hawaiian upbringing. Go for rotisserie-roasted meats and smart small plates, like the carrot agnolotti with Thai herb salad or the oak-grilled shiitake mushrooms.

Bamboo Sushi

You'll find this Portland-born sushi spot (the world's first certified sustainable sushi restaurant) located inside Avanti. Feel good about each bite of nigiri, sashimi, or roll you take. To start, we recommend the Japanese blanched spinach salad with sesame-soy dressing.

Homegrown Tap & Dough (Arvada)

Head here for Italian food with some Colorado charm. Pick from salad, pasta, and—of course—pizza options. Try the burgers, which feature Harris Ranch beef on Grateful Bread buns. Also try the Washington Park location. 

Cowboys Saloon American Bar & Grill

You'll find live country music, a mechanical bull, and specialty cocktails at this spot. There's also a full menu loaded with burgers and fried goodness. Be sure to try the made-to-order skillet cornbread.

Lucky Cat

Restaurateur Troy Guard has transformed the former Bubu space into Chinese-inspired Lucky Cat. Sit back, sip a sake cocktail, and choose between the spring onion pancakes with roasted duck, the steamed fish, or the dan dan noodles. Or just order it all.

Sera's Ramen Enclave

Owner Sera Nguyen takes diners on tour of Asian flavors with her unique ramen bowls. We recommend the chilled ramen (served with Korean chile paste) and the fresh-squeezed sugarcane juice to drink.
