Most Delicious Places in Denver

Lauren Mack

I dish on the most memorable meals in the Mile High City.

  • Little Man Ice Cream

    Arguably some of the best ice cream I have ever eaten. Super fresh ice cream is served from a massive ice cream can. Their Peanut Butter Magic is vanilla ice cream with hunks and hunks of homemade peanut butter cups. Mmm...

  • Drunken Bakery

    This boozy bakery is just as cute as its location on the historic Larimer Square block in downtown Denver.

  • El Five

    Atop a nondescript five-story office building in a residential part of town is El Five, which offers enviable views of Denver - make sure to either grab a seat on the balcony or at the chef's counter. All the tapas here are fantastic, but every must order the pork tenderloin.

  • Williams & Graham

    Walk through the bookcase and enter a magical dimly lit library themed bar where bartenders shake and stir exceptional house-made cocktails and classics. There's a great food menu too if you want to make an evening of it.

  • Huckleberry Roasters

    Great spot for a quick breakfast and coffee, of course.

  • The Wolf's Tailor

    The experimental musings from the kitchen make for an interesting four-chapter (aka four-course) tasting menu you won't soon forget. Definitely get the non-alcoholic drink pairing!

  • The Maven Hotel at Dairy Block

    This bar is hopping on weekends. Don't miss the alley out back where you can sip cocktails like PS I Love You (rum, passionfruit, and vanilla) and also sample light bites from other restaurants without leaving your table.

  • Run For The Roses

    Unforgettable cocktail journey in one of the hippest parts of Downtown Denver!

  • Beckon

    This cozy restaurant hosts fewer than two dozen diners, who feast on a seasonally changing tasting menu. The 2.5 hour experience is unforgettable. The staff is so delightful and caring, expertly explaining each course and attending to each diner's desires and queries. You must book the instant seats open up (i.e. more than a month in advance).
