Great night out at The Plimouth. Buzzy, fun atmosphere (might be a little noisy for some). Lots of great cocktails and wine list is extensive. The menu changes frequently based on what’s available seasonally - very creative! The halibut was done to perfection and save room for dessert - the vanilla crunch gelato and double chocolate cookie was divine.

About the restaurant
Satchel's on 6th.

Named after the owner’s youngest son, Satchel’s on 6th is the place to eat and drink. Our Chef has created a contemporary, eclectic, New American neighborhood menu using seasonal ingredients that results in refined flavors and inspired plates. We've put our heart and soul into this place and it gives us great pleasure to serve you.
Warm wood tones and exposed brick highlight this cozy, 50 seat space that has made its home on East Denver reinvigorated 6th Avenue. Says Casalini, Our goal is to become the best go-to, indispensable restaurant in the neighborhood. Period. End of story.

Chilled English pea and crab soup blew us away - it could not have been more delicious and well suited for the Spring season.

About the restaurant
The D in D Bar stands for Drinks, Dining, and Dessert.

Drinks: We have an excellent wine, beer and D Bar concoctions menu that suits all price ranges and occasions. We even have a wine made just for us called Mr. Cupcake by award winning wine maker, Charles Smith!! Time for some after work fun? Join us for Nibbles and Sips Happy Hour!

Dining: D Bar isn’t based on one particular type of dining. As chefs, we pull from what we personally enjoy eating. Thus, our menu is based on our childhood favorites, inspiration from travels, and simply just things we like to eat!

Dessert: Our passion and background is pastry! We have designed D Bar with a unique dessert bar! It's the best seating in the house as you watch pastry chefs create beautiful plated desserts right before your eyes!

About the restaurant
Located in Denver’s thriving Union Station neighborhood, our menu embodies the dual nature of its name. Featuring both hearty and light items, it provides thoughtful, creative seasonal fare for vegans and meat-eaters alike. Even the bar program gives a nod to this split focus – our quirky, sexy cocktails are paired to both palates. We’re proud to source ingredients locally and make items in-house whenever possible.

We designed the space to make guests feel like they’re at a casual get-together hosted by their most stylish friend. Climbing vines, antique books, garage doors that overlook two patios, sleek couches for lounging and community tables for making new friends come together to welcome guests, whether they’re wearing flip flops or a suit (or both).

Please visit our website www.pigandsprout.com for a link to our online gift card store for all the food lovers on your list.

The service alone and drinks will keep us coming back. Our server Angelina was just top notch. She was super accommodating & when part of the order came out wrong,she was quick to fix it. The drinks were tasty and parts of our order were yummy but I am not sure if it was comparable to the price point of some of the items. Will come again to get a fairer sampling of what the kitchen can do.
