12 at Madison

With a menu offering 18 small plates meant for sharing (plus one large format plate meant to feed two to four people), Jeff Osaka's new iteration of his celebrated restaurant is ideal for dining with a group. Don't miss the crisp salads, such as the radicchio with anchovy dressing, or the veal sweetbreads with crunchy toast.

Post Oak Hall

Take a quick trip to Houston, Texas with these authentic po' boy sandwiches, which come topped with Southern chow-chow, cheese, and pickles. This shop doubles as Helliemae's retail outlet, so make sure to pick up some salt caramels while you're there.

Clyde

Bring a group and sample shared plates and tapas, including smoked hummus served with taro chips and tomato salad, lamb and port meatballs with sundried tomato butter, and red trout rillettes. Charcuterie options include both housemade and imported cheeses and meats. 

Mile High Hamburger Mary's

Whether you're hanging out for a Bronco's game or enjoying a night out with the family, this perfectly quirky spot is ideal. Don't miss the Power Hour salad with quinoa, arugula, and a lemon preserve vinaigrette or the Hula Girl burger with house-made pineapple chutney. 

Public School 303 Restaurant & Bar

Offering traditional American fare, this restaurant brings the school-house theme into every aspect of the experience. Head over during recess (happy hour) to enjoy reduced prices on brews and tipples, as well as small bites including chorizo mac and cheese, crispy buffalo cauliflower, and PB&J burger bites. 

Sloan's Lake Tap and Burger

Head to the second location of this Colorado-born eatery for gourmet burgers and local craft beer. Pick your patty, bun, and an assortment of toppings for your perfect customizable burger, or opt for the Colorado barbecue. 

Chow Urban Grill

Specializing in putting creative twists on American classics, this restaurant offers everything from flatbreads to chargrilled East Coast oysters. We recommend the braised pork belly bahn mi with Sambal aïoli or the Colorado lamb burger served on a brioche bun. 

Avelina

John Broening and Yasmin Lozada-Hissom have teamed up once again at this upscale LoDo restaurant. Broening's cooking skews Italian, and the menu offers beautifully composed dishes like wood-oven roasted eggplant and smoked trout bruschetta. Lozada-Hissom's stunning desserts are worth a trip in their own right. 

Rackhouse

Sharing the Bindery on Blake space with Bierstadt Lagerhaus and C-Squared Ciders, the Rackhouse's menu focuses on foods that pair well with beer and cider. Try the indulgent mac and cheese, which combines six creamy cheeses and is finished with a topping of pork "dust."
