Distillery
Highlands
About the restaurant
The Family Jones Spirit House is a distillery and tasting room featuring crafted spirits and bites. It emphasizes the relationship between distiller, chef, bartender and guest, with a focus on hospitality that makes it a gathering place where all feel at home. Nestled in the space at 3245 Osage St., The Family Jones Distillery occupies the former Mancinellis Market building two doors from Root Down. Designed and built by tres birds workshop, the space pairs industrial elements with rich wood details. The roof was lifted to add a second-floor mezzanine where distillery operations are now perched above a sunken, curvilinear, concrete bar. Guests enter the space through a large, square, wooden door made from reclaimed, on-site materials. Inside, they are met with low-slung seating, deep blue booths and soft lighting. Two-story wooden louvers flank the Osage Street glass facade, offering passive temperature and lighting control, while drawing attention to the well-lit copper still.

About the restaurant
Like the Highland neighborhood we call home, Sushi Hai is refined, with a funky bite to its elegance. Modern with a Japanese flair, and filled with exceptional art created in the neighborhood, this restaurant has a unique style and provides three floors of seating - and every table feels special. We also offer three private Tatami Rooms, which accommodate 8 to 10 diners in traditional Japanese floor-seating.


We at Sushi Hai welcome you to come indulge your senses.

Surf and turf roll and hamachi were very good but main dishes were a little disappointing. The teriyaki chicken was overdone and the mahi mahi was a little bland.

We have been coming here for the last ten years, and have always had a very well cooked meal. The four courses with the wine pairings is highly recommended!

Highlands
About the restaurant
Our dream is to bring a traditional Southern Mexican restaurant to Denver....One in which we welcome guests as much as we do in our own home. We have brought our parents' recipes to Denver. Our wish is that the way you eat here is exactly how we eat at our house in Puebla, Mexico. Just as in Mexico, we want you to feel as though our house is your house.
Our cuisine is distincly Southern Mexican, which offers our guests many unique choices that have scarcely been offered in Colorado. We encourage our guests to try something new! It is our guarantee that whatever you do not like, we will take back and make something else, no questions asked. Our food is not fusion, it is not modern, it is not tex-mex. It is simply traditional, flavorful Pueblan cuisine that has been passed down through many generations of our family. Although we do not have burritos nor green chili in Puebla, we have added those items to the menu for those guests desiring something a little more Mexican-American.

About the restaurant
Our menu is inspired by the Mexican regions of Yucatán, Oaxaca, and Veracruz. We strive to respect the influences and traditions of these diverse cultures to bring you food that is uniquely El Jefe.

We believe in doing things the right way. Not because it’s trendy or cool, but because it’s right. We change our menu with the grow season, supporting our neighbors and the terroir of Colorado. We are not your average Mexican joint, rather a reflection of our environment and beliefs.

We hand make our tortillas every day. All of our pork comes from one whole hog. Our chefs breakdown the whole animal, for chorizo, appetizers, stocks, soups, and entrees. Nothing is wasted. We do this out of respect for the animal and for the people who raised them for us. Anything we can produce in our kitchen is done by us, with love. No frills, just good food.

We do an amazing brunch on the weekends, and by default or menu is nearly 100% gluten free.
