Sushi Sasa
Sushi Sasa
(2396)
$$$$
Japanese | Downtown / LoDo, Denver

Sushi Sasa has the best sushi I've had since coming to Colorado eight years ago from the San Francisco Bay Area. The hamachi was delicious, as was the ahi toro. The rolls were creative and tasty. I enjoyed having many sakes to choose from. The service was excellent. The only reason I won't go there each time I get a chance to dine in Denver is the prices. We spent over $200 for a meal for two that would have easily been half that in the expensive Bay Area. More

We had 8 people for a business dinner, several from DC. Everyone was impressed. The food was fabulous and we tested a lot of it ordering enough for 16 people. Would highly recommend it. It’s a little loud, but service and food and location are terrific. More

$$$$
Wine Bar | River North (Denver), Denver

I was so pleasantly surprised by my night at Noble Riot. Even though I am not well versed in talking about wine, I had previously ruled out roses because of having too many that were too sweet. The waiter was really receptive to this, and brought me a much more dry rose, and it was delicious! I appreciated the waiter's encouragement to try something new. Additionally, their cheese and meat board was outstanding. We did the 7 for $25, which offered a good variety and also was a good amount of food for the price. I will definitely be back! More

$$$$
Contemporary American | Vail, Mountains

The amazing views from the Game Creek restaurant are only matched by the exquisite setting and superb food. We were attending the Fathers Day brunch, and every morsel was excellent. From the fresh fruit, lox spread, carved prime rib, omelet station, and all the requisite sides to go with them - this brunch was one of the best we ever had. Our only regret is that we could not sample all of the dishes. Will have to come back and do it again! More

Discover Denver

Located just an hour’s drive from the trifecta of ski resorts—Aspen, Vail and Breckenridge—and nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains; Denver is scaling the ranks of the country’s most desirable places to live. And while Colorado’s capital city is a world class hub of winter recreations, a booming restaurant scene is on the rise, too. Brunch waits now rival those of its coastal counterparts. Sounds a little weird given Denver’s land-locked nature, but sushi is also popular here. Downtown, you’ll find Italian Trattorias, sprawling beer gardens, and a slew of coffee shops that range from pour over bars to laid-back, locals-only spots. Larimer Square forms the heart of downtown’s historic district and houses upscale restaurants fit for special occasions. On the outskirts of town, Red Rocks Amphitheater draws festival crowds for its outdoor acoustics and epic views.
