All restaurants, breweries, distilleries, and wineries that serve food and that meet Colorado’s new safety and health requirements can reopen for dine-in service beginning on May 27, thanks to Governor Jared Polis’ updated safer-at-home order. Here are the establishments welcoming patrons on-site. It’s a living list, so please check back for updates. 

Keep in mind: Reservations are strongly recommended; face coverings are required when you’re not eating or drinking; and no more than eight people can be seated together.
