Something for every meal and craving

ALL DAY: The Nickel

Located just inside Hotel Teatro, the Nickel — an American bistro led by chef Russell Stippich — offers seasonal American fare all day long. The menu boasts of fan favorites such as the bottomless white Russian bar and steak and waffles for brunch, the nickel and dime burger for lunch, and the scallops with foie gras, black truffles, and leek for dinner.

FOR DRINKS: Vesta

At this LoDo staple, the drinks are as impressive as the shareable plates (or boards) of seasonal fare by chef Nicholas Kayser. There couldn’t be a more ideal way to end a long day of adventure in and around the city than with a pear rosemary Collins paired with a thoughtfully prepared board of house-made charcuterie and all the accoutrements.

FOR BREAKFAST: The Corner Office

What could possibly be more weekend brunch-worthy than an extended “stay” at the Corner Office? Although the restaurant did away with its ever-impressive bloody bar, the sweet breakfast confections like the challah French toast, red velvet waffles, and of course bottomless mimosas should be all the coaxing that is needed.

FOR A QUICK LUNCH: Masterpiece Delicatessen

Located on the cozy corner of 16th and Central Streets in the LoHi neighborhood, Masterpiece is where the foot traffic always seems to stop for a quick bite inside or on-the-go. The classic deli menu boasts of salads and sandwiches like the arugula salad with blue cheese, Granny Smith apples, and candied walnuts, or the sweet and savory smoked turkey sandwich with brie, pears, and cranberry honey.

FOR DINNER: Beast + Bottle

A Capitol Hill gem, Beast and Bottle recently celebrated its 5-year anniversary. The Reilly siblings run the show at this quaint and rustic American eatery that fully focuses on responsible food sourcing and seasonal fare from local farmers. Diners should come for dinner and usually need a reservation.
