Onefold Hits a Breakfast Home Run; Mercantile is a Denver Gem

Two Denver dining newcomers garnered much praise in this week's reviews.

Westword's food critic, Gretchen Kurtz, reviewed Onefold this week and was clearly impressed with the quaint Uptown breakfast spot. Kurtz praises the eatery's unique quirkiness and ability to stand out among the throngs of new Denver restaurants. It would seem that Onefold's location in a former Quizno's on 18th Avenue and the fact that it only serves until 2 p.m. may be deterrents to its success, but that is certainly not the case. Patrons, like Kurtz, find themselves at Onefold time after time for its small but thoughtful menu that utilizes animal fat in the best possible way.

Scott Mowbray of 5280 reviewed Mercantile Dining & Provisions this week, awarding the Union Station restaurant three-and-a-half out of four stars. Mowbray highlights Mercantile's distinct ability to be at once precise and upscale with a decidedly "chill" vibe. The Union Station eatery is a shapeshifter throughout the day, and not all meals are created equal here. Mowbray found the breakfast and lunch procedure to be off-putting, saying he would prefer the full service routine that is customary for dinner. When it came to the food itself, the critic praises all of his savory choices but the sweet side of things was lacking for him. Ultimately he gave Mercantile a very good review, dubbing it as a high point on Denver's growing map of restaurants.
