Platt Park

Pita Fresh

A fast-casual mediterranean place serving favorites like chicken or beef shawarma, falafel and hummus. Also try an innovative pita-crust pizza. Wash it all down with fresh-squeezed juice. Open late, it caters to the University of Denver crowd.

Maria Empanada

Go straight for the empanadas. The 15-plus flavors range from the beef classico to vegan veggie to tango. Buy them in singles or share a dozen, but save room for the alfajores.  New expanded menu includes tartas, breakfast medialunas, and espresso.

The Village Cork

Dark wood and exposed brick give this wine-and-dine bistro a charming feel. Patrons are beguiled by worldly wine selections, artisanal cheese and antipasto plates. Try the warm brie and roasted garlic.

Kaos Pizzeria

A wood-fired oven, gourmet ingredients, and wine to-go make a perfect pizzeria for dine-in or delivery. If the weather's nice, eat outside in the spacious garden area.

Park Burger (Platt Park)

This neighborhood eatery serves up top-notch burgers, such as the Croque, topped with Swiss, a fried egg, and a slice of ham. Add a milkshake or root beer float. Multiple locations. 

Fontana Sushi

Friendly sushi joint serving rolls, noodle bowls, tempura, and curry.

Pajama Baking Company

Stop into this cute cafe for house-made treats like ice cream, cinnamon rolls, or crumbly peach scones.

Izakaya Den

It's been dubbed Sushi Den II, but Izakaya Den is more than a replica of its popular cousin. You can still order ultrafresh sushi and sashimi, but the most exciting dishes come in the form of small plates.

Gaia Bistro

An earth-friendly restaurant in a garden setting, this cafe specializes in growing its own produce to tuck inside crepes, soup, salads, and sandwiches.
