Sushi SasaSushi Sasa

Japanese | Downtown / LoDo, Denver

Sushi Sasa is a wonderful restaurant if your looking for a nice sushi place with quality, fresh fish. They also have awesome other options as well. My only wish is that they had a kids menu and crayons/coloring sheets for kiddos. Other than that we love this place and it’s definitely one of our “go to,” sushi places in our neighborhood. More

I had the fried chicken bowl but was told I could substitute shrimp or chicken so I did. I typically don’t like fried chicken but this restaurant offered many substitutions to accommodate vegetarians. The charred grape and sauce elevated this this dish to James Beard award level. I felt like I was eating in San Francisco the dish was so delicious and unique. My husband had the pork chop with bourbon sauce and at least a half dozen huge onion rings on top for both taste and presentation! I had the best full leaf tea I have EVER HAD! A true find! More

Range is a hidden gem. I work close by and though I’ve passed by a million times, this was my first time in. Absolutely loved the lunch menu. So much to choose from and it wasn’t like so many restaurants that are just trying too hard with their menu. The meatballs were delish. Others in my group had the truffle Mac and tuna salad and loved them both. Also get the parm fries! More

Southern | Downtown / LoDo, Denver

The service the Friday we were there was very slow. However, the hostess recognized this and assisted by giving tables water and then asking the kitchen for free biscuit appetizer plates for the tables having to wait for their server, which was good customer service and made up for the wait. Other than that, the food was delicious and the service was good once the wait staff arrived to take our order. More

Continental | Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs

We've only been twice, but Carlos is like an old friend with superior culinary skills. Both times (once in a snowstorm!) he was out in the parking lot and greeted us as we drove in. The owner! The craft cocktail menu is expansive and by the time the waiter takes your order you're nice and relaxed and happy. The food is always, ALWAYS great. There's nothing like it in Colorado Springs (unless I haven't found it yet). Very inventive dishes, the ingredients are fresh. If he suggests a dish (and he will) go with it. You will not be disappointed. Had lamb shanks (special) - to die for, and the lomo saltado - also to die for. I can't say enough good things about the place, from the food to the staff. Small downside is the expense, but so worth the change. More

Amazing to be at the Ski Tip for the last seating of the season. The food as always is superb and the service is second to none. Kurtis and Megan the sommeliers are a delight to work with and really make the meal special with a wine paring. This is my favorite restaurant in Colorado. More

Discover Denver

Located just an hour’s drive from the trifecta of ski resorts—Aspen, Vail and Breckenridge—and nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains; Denver is scaling the ranks of the country’s most desirable places to live. And while Colorado’s capital city is a world class hub of winter recreations, a booming restaurant scene is on the rise, too. Brunch waits now rival those of its coastal counterparts. Sounds a little weird given Denver’s land-locked nature, but sushi is also popular here. Downtown, you’ll find Italian Trattorias, sprawling beer gardens, and a slew of coffee shops that range from pour over bars to laid-back, locals-only spots. Larimer Square forms the heart of downtown’s historic district and houses upscale restaurants fit for special occasions. On the outskirts of town, Red Rocks Amphitheater draws festival crowds for its outdoor acoustics and epic views.
