What used to be a hard to catch, very occasional dish at this award-winning eatery from equally award-winning chef Caroline Glover is now a staple of their dine-in and takeout offerings. The Annette burger features 7x Wagyu beef served up on a house-made English muffin with chow chow, sour pickles, and cheddar. It’s a perfectly crafted burger, but more than that, it’s a very real (and very delicious) symbol of Glover’s range as a chef.
“Special” is the word that comes to mind when thinking about James Beard Award nominee Caroline Glover’s restaurant, Annette. Simple, farm-to-table ingredients and carefully crafted dishes never cease to delight any customer lucky enough to be seated within its refined walls. The Annette burger and fries is always a safe bet (but you better believe that burger will be memorable) and the roasted half chicken is a classic. Pair with a house cocktail and dare to dine in one of the outdoor greenhouses or yurt for an extra-special experience.
Since opening in late 2016, the Stanley Marketplace has become a bustling community centerpiece filled with dining, shopping, services, and events. But even with so many businesses calling the development home, Caroline Glover’s first solo restaurant Annette is a major standout and one of Denver’s top dining destinations. Not only has Glover developed an eatery that manages to serve fine dining level food with an atmosphere that feels as comfortable as a close friend’s house, she’s also become a voice for the challenges COVID brought to Denver restaurants. On social media, she’s provided an honest look at the journey she and her team have taken, though closures, menu changes, the addition of outdoor dining (built with the help of community members), and the long hours and emotional toll of a year of nonstop change. But one thing remains steady: Annette is a culinary gem and we’re lucky to have it.
