Best New Denver Hot Spot - Humboldt Farm Fish Wine

Humboldt Farm, Fish and Wine LogoThank goodness Denver Restaurant Week will be back for a second week in August!  August 23rd to the 29th to be exact.  Why you ask?  Because I will be going back a second time for dinner to Humboldt Farm Fish Wine!

Located at 1700 Humboldt Street, in the old Strings restaurant location, Humboldt Farm Fish Wine is probably one of the best restaurants I’ve eaten at in a long time.  The space is beautiful, in a historic neighborhood of Uptown in Denver, that’s been modernized...

Denver Hot Spot – Acorn at The Source

The Source DenverBeing a self-proclaimed foodie from Chicago, I definitely know a good restaurant when I eat at one.  You know, the ones that are going to make it.  I literally eat at every new restaurant that comes to Denver.  When the two dining 5280 magazines come out during any given year, I use both the “Top 25 Restaurants” and “Best New Restaurants” as my checklists of where to hit next.  Last night, it was Acorn at The Source’s turn.

I was with my husband and one other couple, and the goal was to try as much as we could!  We ate upstairs, where there is a bit of a view of the action down below and a little more privacy.  The menu at Acorn...

The Best New Denver Hot Spot – Old Major

Old Major - LoHiI’ve always felt that eating out in Denver was not only delicious and fun, but being the foodie from Chicago that I am, I always hope for a bit of an adventure too.  To me, a best new restaurant needs to obviously have great food, but it should also have an array of libations, a cool vibe, trendy décor, impeccable service, and leave you wanting to come back again.  Old Major Denver has it all!

Located at 33rd and Tejon in the Highlands neighborhood, Old Major is considered to be “Bistro Style” serving “American” fare.  I’d agree that it’s American, but with some of the most unique takes on dishes that I have ever seen and eaten.  How about a “Nose to Tail Plate”, consisting of confit rib,...

Masterpiece Delicatessen: Eating out in Denver

Masterpiece Deli - Front PatioThis fabulously delicious deli may have opened its doors in 2008, but with the sudden and constant growth and popularity of the LoHi and Riverfront neighborhoods, we feel that this artful sandwich shop deserves a place on the list as one of Denver’s hot new spots.

Blue Sushi in Denver: A Modern Twist on Traditional Cuisine

Blue Sushi DenverIf you are in the mood for sushi and love eating out in Denver, there seems to be an endless amount of options when it comes to Japanese restaurants.
