Steamboat Springs-born LOW Country Kitchen has opened the doors to its Denver outpost last night at 1575 A Boulder Street, in a space that Vita Restaurant called home for the past decade. The southern cuisine restaurant owned by husband and wife team Brian and Katie Vaughn seats 97-seat guests in a space that includes a dining room, bar, and private room seating. The capacity will double once the porch and roof top will open.
The interior, designed by Raw Creative and Katy Vaughn is light and airy, fusing modern lines with warm touches such as plantation shutter wallpaper, wicker chair community seating, and copper pendant lighting.
Like any self respecting southern eatery, LOW serves great fried chicken, jambalaya, and shrimp and grits, plus dishes like clams with house andouille sausage, a green tomato BLT, and a beet salad.
The bar is led by Quinton Bennett, formerly of Mercantile Dining & Provision, whose menu stretches from classics like Mint Juleps and Sazeracs and unique creations like the Pistachio Fizz and Charred Strawberry & Rhubarb Smash.
An industry food and beverage program will be introduced in mid-March to bring in those who work in Denver’s many restaurants. Also, keep LOW mind for Derby day this year - a cool bash is in the works.
The restaurant is open seven days a week for happy hour, dinner, and weekend brunch.
