Set at the border of the Highland and Berkeley neighborhoods, Brazen, the upcoming eatery owned by industry veteran Chris Sargent, will open its doors in just weeks. Sargent, who worked at Rioja and Acorn since moving to Denver, enlisted chef Lance Barto to create an approachable yet elevated menu for the eatery soon-to-launch at 4500 West 38th Avenue.
In the rustic and comfortable 1,500 square foot space, complete with a delightful patio centered around a fire pit, Barto and Sargent will offer a variety of seasonal and creative menu items suitable for social dining. There are crostini appetizers topped with charred zucchini or wild mushrooms, salads featuring snap peas and lemon marmalade, small pasta plates, and large meat dishes. Here's a peek at the menu.
When it opens, the restaurant will start service at 4 p.m. daily and close at 2 a.m. and food will be served late. Brunch will be offered on weekends starting at 11 a.m.
