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.

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.

The Way Back

Three Denver restaurant veterans (Chad Michael George, Kade Gianinetti, and Jared Schwartz) offer comfort food, including dishes like snail stroganoff, bass crudo, and roasted chicken. Drinks are simple in ingredients yet complex in flavors. Try the Forager: a concoction of roasted mushroom fernet, an egg-washed angostura bitters, and a lemon-poppy seed syrup shaken with lemon juice and egg white.

Sushi Ronin

Sushi Ronin's casual and comfortable vibe complements the traditional, omakase-style Japanese cuisine. For the full experience, opt for chef Corey Baker's seven-course tasting menu.

TAG Burger Bar (Highland)

An inventive burger bar that lets you choose your protein: classic beef, lamb, bison, turkey, veggie, or salmon. The popular Los Chingones burger comes topped with baja slaw, chicharrones (fried pork rinds), griddled cotija cheese, black bean puree, and Cholula aïoli. Don't miss the adult (read: alcoholic) milkshakes. Try the Congress Park location.
