Que Bueno Suerte

Palenque Mezcaleria

Tucked behind Adelitas Cocina y Cantina rests Colorado's first mezcaleria. Learn more about mezcal (and sip on more than 75 varieties of the libation) and snack on small plates like the Oaxacan cheese queso and shrimp and mango ceviche.

The Rosedale

Formerly Boone's Tavern, the Rosedale is a family-friendly neighborhood spot and a solid hangout for the big game. Chef Jacob Conover whips up high-end pub food, including a seared Colorado bass dish and fried chicken paired with smashed potatoes and collard greens.

Lucile's Creole Café (Platt Park)

What was once a neighborhood post office is now home to Creole-style breakfasts. Dig into a gravy-smothered buttermilk biscuit, nibble on some sweet beignets, or sip on a Bloody Mary. The ample outdoor seating is ideal for the Denver sunshine.

Ototo

Sushi Den's Toshi Kizaki has relaunched his Japanese robata-style tapas spot in a remodeled dining space. Market-driven dishes like a catch-of-the-day raw bar and whole grilled fish complement a selection of sashimi, ramen bowls, and yakitori.
