Dave W:

  • Tag Restaurant- “Amazing caramelized butterfish, taco sushi and miso black cod. This will be a true eating experience!”
  • Steuben’s- “Burgers, fries, pot pies, shakes and cocktails. American Regional classics recreated with a spin, but not overdone and ruined by over-thinking it all.”
  • Sushi Den- “This place is in a great area of Denver with a late night café right across the street. Their sake menu is pretty deep as well with lots of unique things to try outside of the traditional house sake.”


  • Steuben’s – “I love the environment! Great old school “diner feel” with a new upscale twist. Late night Happy Hour is 10pm-Close.”
  • Pour House Pub- “Great roof top bar (even in the winter!) If you’re a Boston Sport’s fan like me, you’ll feel right at home.”
  • Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant “Try the grilled shrimp fajita or chicken quesadillas. Seriously strong margaritas- there is a 3-marg limit for a reason!”


  • Elways- “With no exaggeration, I can say it’s the best burger I’ve ever had. Everything else there is great too.”
