I have always had the duck breast; medium rare, and have always been thrilled with the tenderness of the meat and the sweetness and complimentary flavor of the sauce. The restaurant is very small, so on a Friday night the noise can be a little more than amplified and the ambiance can be distorted, but it is still quaint and enjoyable. I like dining here and try to whenever I get a chance.
Favorite Dish: The duck breast.
A cute little shorts or jeans casual place with an upscale, eclectic menu. It gets unbelievably crowded but the food is worth it. The majority of menu items are different types of meat, with some sushi selections thrown in for variety. The menu features venison, lamb, duck and beef tenderloin as main courses, which can be served with any of the 50 or so different sauces.
The sauces are the type of combinations you'd expect from Emeril and each menu selection contains about 10 adjectives, making the process pretty complicated, but the end result was very tasty. For example, sweet chili ginger yellow curry and mango poblano salsa. Come to think of it, even Emeril would not go that far, although this sauce was pretty good.
The tuna roll appetizer did not appear to be as fresh as I'd like sushi to be, but it tasted just fine. You can't expect east or west coast sushi here, after all, as it must be flown in from somewhere. The pork tenderloin was excellent, and the chefs recommended sauces were a nice compliment.
Favorite Dish: The pork tenderloin beat out the sushi and the sangria was pretty good.
Trendy downtown restaurant with excellent food!
Favorite Dish: Most dishes are served with several unique sauces to dip your food in. The ambience is also fun.
I also enjoy eating at Campo di Fiori in Cherry creek. Great italian food and great atmosphere. For quick lunch there is a Whole foods market in Cherry creek and there are Wild Oats Markets all over town with great delis and very fresh food. Denver has many fantastic restaurants. You can get restaurant reviews from the websites of the Denver Post and Rocky Mtn. News.
This is one of the best places I have ever eaten. the food is always consistant and they have the best desserts. This is a trendy but casual place.
You won't be dissapointed. This was voted in Denvers top 10 best.
Favorite Dish: I love the tuna and the steak. The sauces they serve with them are perfect. For dessert try the daffy apple or creme brulee.
