Everywhere You Need to Eat in Denver Right Now
The gist: Opened initially in 2017 then gradually reopening as Covid-19 restrictions allowed, the popular Union Station restaurant within the Kimpton Hotel Born remains a favorite downtown spot for upscale, farm-fresh fare in the heart of the city.
The food: Produce-forward takes on menu staples, like the new Vegetable Charcuterie and Sourdough Bread Salad with summer squash and house-made ricotta, combine the freshness of summer with chef Christian Grave’s ever-present creativity. Coal simmered mussels and the Citizen Rail 50/50 burger remain on the menu for those who love a lasting fan-favorite, but new additions to the dinner menu include a bone-in pork chop and miso-glazed, dry-aged duck breast. Pair with any number of CR’s classic or seasonal cocktails, wine, or drink of choice for a meal that checks all the boxes.
The cost: Anywhere from $13 - $65 for small plates or entrees. But if you’re feeling fancy, opt for the 48-ounce dry-aged Tomahawk (for two), which also comes with two sides for $140.
