Best Restaurants in Denver

Denver became the birthplace of the cheeseburger when restaurant owner Louis Ballast registered the trademark in 1935. Needless to say, this staple of American cuisine is still present in many of the best restaurants in Denver today. Not in the mood for a cheeseburger? The Mile High City’s culinary scene is diverse enough to offer you just about anything you’re craving.

So, if you’re looking for apartments in Denver and want to have a great dining experience, here are some of the best places to grab some food.

Because we’re talking about the home of the cheeseburger, there’s no better way to start this list than with The Cherry Cricket. The oldest burger bar in Denver lets you play with a long list of toppings to create the sloppiest, juiciest hamburger you can think of. Granted, if you’re expecting a fancy menu, this might not be your go-to place. Rather, The Cherry Cricket is stuck in its old ways … in the best possible way. As the neighborhood modernizes around it, this burger joint remains just as quirky and full of character as when it first started out.

Home-cooked meals are served with a dash of pizzazz at Corinne. And, the only thing that outshines the stylish setting is the locally sourced food. Weekend brunches and Monday through Thursday Happy Hour make this restaurant the “it” spot for a get-together with friends. Plus, wine enthusiasts will certainly have an excellent time at Corrine every Wednesday, thanks to enticing wine specials.

Want to take a bite out of the Big Apple right in the middle of Denver? The Greenwich restaurant celebrates the famous New York neighborhood with delicious, New American cuisine and a funky setting. The walls are adorned with works by late street photographer Ricky Powell that give you a glimpse into the Village life. And, the portions are generously sized and made to share, while the cocktails are the main highlight of its Boozy Things menu.

Jax Fish House and Oyster Bar

Jax Fish House and Oyster Bar has been a part of the LoDo district food scene for 25 years. With the exclusive Emersum oysters and sustainably caught fish on the menu, you’re ensured only the freshest seafood — a blessing in a landlocked state. Plus, the selection of raw, fried or grilled oysters will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters — all at excellent prices.

La Loma

La Loma is so much more than a restaurant. It’s an experience. Continuing the tradition of what began as a small, family-owned Mexican joint, La Loma strives to provide simple, yet tasty authentic food in a welcoming environment. With fresh tortillas being made on display right in the dining room, you’ll feel like you’re sitting in abuelita’s home. The salsa also packs a punch and the green chile is a must-try.

Mehak India’s Aroma

Indian food and fine dining are not a common mix. However, they’re the key to success for Mehak India’s Aroma. This restaurant serves up a simple, yet diverse menu of gourmet Indian food, including plenty of vegetarian options. In fact, the savory spices and herbs will take you on a trip around the land of diversity in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere.

Situated on the more high-end side, Barolo Grill will certainly give you a bang for your buck. Yearly trips to Italy keep the staff inspired and able to bring the taste of Northern Italian food straight to your plate. And, this elevated cuisine is only made better by the diverse, award-winning wine list. The bungalows provide a pleasant, COVID-safe dining experience no matter the weather and the desserts will make you say, “mamma mia!”

Speaking of desserts, we must end this list on a (sugar) high note — and D Bar certainly hits the sweet spot with its pastry and signature cakes. Take a seat at the dessert bar to see the magic happen, with pastry chefs creating the tastiest sweets right in front of you. With punny menu item names, like “WAKE ME UP BEFORE YOU COCOA,” you can see why D Bar is “D best.”
