6. Work & Class

Last year 20

Delores Tronco, Tony Maciag, and Dana Rodriguez’s Work & Class is a brilliant mashup. This no-reservations RiNo spot hums with diners—often a line forms as early as 3:45 p.m.—and it’s totally low-key and cacophonously loud. It’s easy to get caught up in the happy energy of the place. Figure out what you want in your cocktail (mix and match spirits and house-made mixers), and then prepare for the main event. Chef and partner Rodriguez’s American and Latin dishes—comforting eats such as roasted goat, blue corn empanadas, and posole—have a pedigree and depth that belies Work & Class’ casual vibe. 2500 Larimer St., Suite 101, 303-292-0700, workandclassdenver.com
