Heck, even our airport food is good! DIA was recently named the airport with the best dining in the nation in no small part thanks to local favorite Root Down. (You’ll find the husband and me arriving early before every flight just to spend time with one of their Bloody Marys and the world’s best breakfast sandwich.)
Need a little more scoop on Denver’s ever-evolving dining scene? Here’s an in-depth look at the opening of Morning Collective, the former Snooze executive chef’s breakfast eatery that’s coming to SoBro. Also, a peek into The Kitchen’s more casual sister restaurant, Hedge Row, opening this summer. This James Beard winner will be opening a modern Japanese eatery in Curtis Park. Zuni Street Brewing Company opened last week. RiNo’s Black Shirt Brewing will soon be serving food. And, the opening I’ve been long awaiting…Low Country in LoHi.
