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.

Our brunch was sensational! Very cool place—eclectic menu. The Breakfast Dosa was absolutely delicious and savory. Despite the size and potatoes, it was not “over” filling, but just right! The Chorizo Tacos and the Adobo Pork Benedict were both delicious, creatively prepared and fresh.
Next time we’re in Denver, we’ll definitely return! (Breakfast Dosa pictured below)

Great experience from beginning to end and really unique space. Get the coconut fizz cocktail at brunch, you won't be disappointed.

One of the best meals we’ve had in Denver. Started with happy hour - great cocktails, and generously sized $5 food options, all of them delicious. When the restaurant opened, our server brought the full dinner menu for a seamless transition to the meal, which was also creative and delicious. Our service wasn’t a perfect 10 (a bit distracted and sporadic), but I observed outstanding service at the tables around us, so I conclude our experience isn’t the norm.
We’ll certainly be back!

Great food and fun atmosphere. Service was perfect--attentive but not too much. We ordered from each section of the menu and every dish was delicious.

My friends and I visited Denver last weekend and received MULTIPLE recommendations to visit Linger. It did not disappoint. That was due in large part to our WONDERFUL server Gish. He was helpful, funny, endearing, and attentive. And his recommendations were perfection.

The food was delicious, the ambiance was great for us to catch up and the space is gorgeous. I would recommend Linger to 10/10 friends. There is enough variety on the menu that anyone could find something wonderful to try.

Food was actually cold. And it took forever to get to our table. Hey, maybe that's why it was cold?!

I called a head to inform them it was a special occasion of birthday/engagement. No acknowledgement whatsoever. Very disappointed.

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.

We had a great Valentine's Day dinner at Linger - the food was well presented and delicious. Our server was prompt and professional and the food came out in appropriate amount of time. They featured a set menu for $85 per person for Valentine's day - the first course empanadas and smoked salmon were incredible. We'd highly recommend Linger and hope to visit again soon!

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.
