Explore Denver’s Farm-Fresh Cuisine Like a Local

Denver has seen explosive growth in dining options, with new collaborative food halls, chef-driven restaurants, breweries and hyper-local fine dining springing up in a series of neighborhoods. The Mile High City has long been at the forefront of the U.S. culinary scene – and in the past decade, it has become an award-winning culinary destination with nationally renowned hotspots, and unique and innovative concepts. Denver is now home to three James Beard Award winners, one of the most prestigious culinary honors in the U.S., and many more nominees. Additionally, Michelin recognized 26 Denver restaurants in their inaugural and highly anticipated Colorado-based Guide.

The most important part of Denver’s culinary identity is its deep roots in hyper-local cuisine. For years, Mile High City chefs have been working directly with local farms, utilizing Colorado’s bountiful harvest of fresh produce, artisanal cheeses and organically raised meats to create dishes that are eco-friendly, innovative and – most importantly – delicious. In Denver, local has always been better. Explore Denver’s dining scene.
