Chef and restaurateur Troy Guard struck the right cord with Denverites when he opened his newest venue, Mister Tuna, in the RiNo neighborhood. There is seafood, there are contemporary complex dishes meant to be shared, and there is a grill that steals the show in the long, dark, sexy space.
Designed by Boss Architecture, Mister Tuna opened in July in the Industry development at 3033 Brighton Boulevard. A large show kitchen flanks a big chunk of the right side of the long space, with a bar running the rest of the length of the room. Apart from the rotisserie grill, there is a raw bar, a pickle bar, and cocktail bar.
On a break from the line, chef Adam Vero gave a quick glimpse on the kind of delicious re-writing of classic kids stories that happens around the wood-fired grill. Come back later this week for the full low down on what goes on at this popular RiNo spot on a regular Friday night, captured by Eater photographer Ryan Dearth.
