The gist: While hearts across Denver were saddened by the closure of North Cap Hill’s Beast + Bottle, Paul and Aileen Reilly certainly weren’t done making restaurant magic. They opened this conceptin a sprawling space in the Hyatt Centric Downtown Denver in 2021.
The food: All the facets you loved about Beast + Bottle plus a ton of wonderful new dishes in the form of seasonal American fare that relies almost entirely on home-grown ingredients. Charred and dressed veggies, chestnut ravioli and rigatoni with lamb bolognese, roasted skate wing, and spice rubbed pork tenderloin are just a taste of what you’ll find.
