Greek to Me

Owned by two brothers from Greece, this authentic restaurant and steakhouse offers house-made specialties such as spanakopita, grilled octopus, gyros, and baklava.

Lower48 Kitchen

This contemporary American eatery draws inspiration from the various cuisines of the lower 48 states. The daily changing menu focuses on fresh, local ingredients.

Pikkas Peruvian Cuisine

This South American spot offers a wide variety of Peruvian-inspired seafood, meat, and vegetable dishes and pisco cocktails. 

The Plimoth

This new American restaurant draws from classic Italian and French cuisines, but abandons pretentiousness. An emphasis on local farmers and ingredients results in an ever-changing menu of seasonal dishes.

The Social

International flavor and locally sourced ingredients. This gathering place offers thoughtfully procured cuisine in a family-friendly setting. Try the duck ravioli, served with Colorado corn, parmesan brodo, mushrooms, and arugula. 

Humboldt Farm Fish Wine

Relaxed American dining in Uptown. The varied menu offers re-interpreted American classics and an impressive fresh oyster selection. If you're not opting for the sustainable seafood, try the burger. 

 

Session Kitchen

This is a gastropub for the masses. This 290-seat dining room offers an innovative "East-meets-West" vibe. The menu is decorated with fresh, light, and farm-intensive dishes. 

Root Down DIA

Globally inspired cuisine for an international airport. Dine there morning, noon, or night; but if it's breakfast you're after—elect for the fried egg BLT. It's made with local Tender Belly bacon and served with home fries. Pair it with the blood orange mimosa. 

Volta

Executive chef Thomas d' Aquin prepares transcendent cuisine with flavors recalling those of Southern France, Italy, Spain, Greece, and Morocco. The international tastes should be no surprise: "volta" is a Latin term meaning a trip or excursion. We like to reserve a table outside on the terrazza to peruse the carefully procured wine selection.

 

Elway's (DIA)

Dining at DIA? Forget compromise—upscale steakhouse fare awaits. Order from the same menu you'd find at Elway's other locations. Early bird travelers can reap the benefits of a take-out breakfast menu with dishes like beef hash, chicken-fried steak burrito, omelets and even housemade granola.
