In part due to the pandemic and its attendant labor and supply shortages, Denver’s seen its share of closures since this map last ran: The loss of institutions like Vesta, Racines, and The Breakfast King hit diners hard at a time when the need for places that feel like a home away from home is stronger than ever.
Luckily for them, though, many old doors remain open: Upscale or down, these 20 restaurants deliver on the same promises of comfort and contentment they made to their patrons when they opened more — in some cases way more — than 20 years ago. (Further outside of city limits, The Fort and Flagstaff House are still doing their thing with verve.)

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission.
