Tacos, Tequila, and Whiskey (a.k.a Pinche Tacos) - Street tacos that you'll probably be left dreaming about. The Pollo Agave is my favorite! Go between 3-6pm to hit up happy hour and you can snag some nachos and Pinche Soda for $5 each.
Kaos Pizza - Amazing woodfire pizzas on the cutest patio!
Avanti - a food court style restaurant that has everything from pizza to sushi.
Cherry Cricket - Seriously the best burger I think I've ever had! Go with any of them and you are set.
Modern Market - A fresh, Panera-esque fast casual place that Josiah and I frequented often. We lived less than a block from one and always used it as our oops-I-forgot-to-make-dinner alternative. Their pizzas are fantastic and their salads are to-die-for!
North - Some of the best Italian I have ever had! It's the perfect place for a date night. Fancy, but not TOO fancy.
City O' City - An innovative vegetarian restaurant that serves up some amazing waffles, salads, pastas, and cocktails. So a little bit of everything, but trust me, it's good.
Denver Biscuit Company - If you're a biscuit fan, like seriously who isn't, this is a must. The Dahlia is my favorite! But be warned, the wait on the weekends is generally an hour and a half plus.
Snooze - The place to go for brunch. Know you'll likely have to wait at least an hour for a table unless you get there before 8AM. But I promise, it's totally worth it! If you can swing a weekday we've always had good luck going around 1pm. I highly recommend the huevos rancheros, breakfast tacos, and any and every pancake!
Voodoo - Located on Colfax, it's more than doughnuts, it's an experience. As hipster-grunge as it gets when it comes to donuts! They have one doughnut that is topped with Oreos that is amaaaaazing and another one that has a maple glaze that I still dream about.
Sweet Cow - The best chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, EVER! Get it in a pretzel cone and your life will be complete.
Stowaway Coffee + Kitchen - If you like light fares that are innovative, fresh, and delicious -- this is your place. It's such a bright space and everything I've eaten here is delicious! It's the perfect brunch, light lunch, or coffee meet-up location. Ashlae introduced me to it and I fell head over heels immediately.
