Though temperatures have fallen, Denver’s restaurants and breweries have been on the rise. Barbecue, breweries, and tacos are now on the radar this week. Here, the latest on what’s popping up around the Mile High City.
The Source Re-Opens
Where: 3350 Brighton Blvd.
The Lowdown: A crane working on the Source’s new hotel collapsed, falling on the roof of its predecessor. The collective space closed on Thursday while a structural inspector assessed the damage. One construction worker was injured, but later released from the hospital. Regular hours for business at all restaurants and vendors resumed today.
Globe Hall Serving in Globeville
Where: 4438 Logan St.
The Lowdown: Globeville’s newest restaurant, Globe Hall, brings barbecue, music, and dancing to the neighborhood. The 200-seat venue from Texas native Jeff Cornelius features a rotisserie smoker named Betty, which can hold 1,800 pounds of meat. Count on smoked meats and local live music when Globe Hall opens with concerts on November 5 and 6.
Los Chingones Coming to Denver Tech Center
Where: 4945 South Newport St.
Neighborhood: Denver Tech Center
The Lowdown: Troy Guard’s taco joint is set to open a second location at Denver Tech Center. The new “badass” place for tacos will serve favorites from its original RiNo location, in addition to a raw bar featuring oysters, shrimp, and ceviche. Dinner service begins on November 9, with lunch planned to start on December 1. Drop by for happy hour cocktails from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on weekdays.
Little Machine Beer Now Open
Where: 2924 W. 20th Ave.
Neighborhood: Jefferson Park
The Lowdown: Denver grew one brewery stronger this week when Little Machine Beer opened in the Jefferson Park neighborhood. Look for a concise menu of craft beer from a 10-barrel system full of IPAs, ales, and seasonal drafts. Nab a bite from food trucks, or bring in a bite to eat to enjoy with the suds.
Denver Gets its Own Sushi-ritto Joint
Words by Brittany Werges
Where: 1512 Larimer St., Denver
The Lowdown: After months of fundraising on Kickstarter, Denver will welcome its own “Sushi-ritto” joint in the form of Komotodo Sushi Burrito. Officially opening tomorrow, October 31, the centrally located fusion concept will offer oversized sushi rolls that mimic the proportions found at popular burrito chains like Chipotle. But don’t expect to find tortillas at Komotodo because the menu items will be wrapped with seaweed and stuffed with traditional sushi fillings, as well as, fusion selections like the Texas Cowboy with steak. The grand opening kicks off at 11 a.m. tomorrow. The first 125 attendees will receive gift cards, 25 of which will get free sushi burritos for a whole year.
