1. Tamayo 1400 Larimer St, Denver, CO 80202 (Lodo)

This Larimer Square spot is a culinary canvas on which Chef Richard Sandoval blends earthy flavors of his native Mexico with creative cooking techniques to craft Tamayo’s modern Mexican cuisine. The substantial menu consists of starters, soups and salads, tacos, enchiladas, chef specials like chicken mole poblano and grilled striped bass wrapped in corn husk, and guacamoles, including traditional, bacon, tuna tartare, and spicy crab varieties. Equally extensive is the tequila collection (there are over 100 options); opt for homemade serrano- or prickly pear-infused tequila, or, if you’re like us and can’t choose just one, order a flight like the Casamigos, a trio of blanco, reposado, and añejo.

The eclectic Asian cuisine here -- think Korean BBQ ribs, steamed bao buns, and dim sum -- might be good, but the ping-pong and huge outdoor patio is really what draws crowds. Tables can be rented by the hour, and you're encouraged to try one of the house-made sodas, or local and Asian beers (Asahi, Tiger, Singha) while waiting for your table.
