Linger, the second concept behind Root Down's Chef/Owner Justin Cucci is located in Denver's Lower Highlands neighborhood. Linger’s vibrant menu reflects a broad farm-to-street sensibility with a spin on traditional ethnic eats. Design elements can be described as a purposeful contradiction featuring reclaimed boxcar floors, a brick ellipse, a Lite Brite bar top and infinity windows with incredible views into downtown Denver. The food, the service, the story combine to extract a feeling. Linger is like a mixtape, and we hope it connects. We’re not trying to reinvent food -- it’s simpler than that. We hope to elicit a feeling – like you get when you hear your favorite song.
Linger now offers lunch!!!! Tuesday - Friday 11:30 am till 2:30 pm.

Good vibes and great food. There were four of us there for a girls brunch. We started with the donuts with chocolate sauce which were to die for. We also ordered the breakfast dosa, which was so so, but the adobo pork benedict was AMAZING. The area around the restaurant is super fun and worth exploring if you're new/visiting

The food takes REALLY long to come out. It’s good but I’m not sure worth such a long wait. More than a half hour on a Saturday morning, for what that’s worth. The server was nice to us, but my wife ordered toast after our original order (our bad, granted) and that took a good 15-20 minutes.

Cool restaurant in a very hip area. We were seated almost immediately and our waiter Gish was great. He was very helpful in helping us pick which dishes would be good for us. We were not disappointed with his recommendations. We loved the family style sharing and we ordered about 9 dishes for the 4 of us and that was a perfect amount. The devils on horseback melted in your mouth and I look forward to going back to order those again. I highly recommend Linger and ask for Gish.

I have eaten here before and like it, but it was way too expensive a Valentine's dinner for the food quality. Overly eager to be creative and under skilled at temping meats, making sure the salad wasn't soggy, and the basics of solid food service. I wouldn't go again for a special dinner.

Mark was our server, and he was attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the menu and preparation methods. The food itself is complex and challenging without being pretentious or inaccessible. Great place for a foodie or anyone who just likes good food.

It was my wife’s birthday and we had been talking about going to Linger for a while but something always came up so I decided to book a reservation for my wife’s birthday. We originally found the restaurant by searching for places that could accommodate my wife’s gluten and dairy allergies. I booked on Open Table and included all the notes about her allergies and that it was her birthday. Our server was Joe and from the start he had all the notes and made fantastic suggestions and we tried a little bit of almost everything until we were stuffed. The service was spot-on throughout the night. The best part about it all was that wife wife felt great the next days afterwards too!! So now we know we can come back again.
