Why Denver is a Foodie’s Dream Destination: A Guide to the City’s Most Delicious Neighborhoods

Get ready for an epic culinary adventure in Denver! Whether you’re in the mood for pillow-soft pita and hummus, out-of-this-world pizza, or decadent ice cream that’s worth the wait, then we’ve got you covered. So, tie on a bib and get ready to discover Denver’s top food stops! 

Safta Restaurant

First and foremost, we’ve got Safta Restaurant in RiNo. This eatery will serve up a menu of heavenly dishes, but the real show stopper is their pita and hummus. These wood-fired pitas are so fluffy they melt in your mouth. And the hummus? Let’s say there won’t be a single drop left behind. Whether you’re in the mood for a savory lamb ragu with crispy chickpeas, the buttery mushroom topped with chives, or the classic tahini sprinkled with Aleppo pepper, Safta is guaranteed to blow you away! 

Redeemer Pizza

If it’s pizza you’re craving, Redeemer Pizza in RiNo is a must-go. This pizzeria has brought the classic pie to new heights with the slow-fermented sourdough crust and top-notch ingredients, including local Elevation Charcuterie soppressata and pickled Pioppino mushrooms. But everyone knows that the best pizza always boils down to the sauce; in this case, Redeemer Pizza, in collaboration with Diebolt Brewing Company, brings you an I.P.A. that’s a perfect pairing with every slice. 

Right Cream

For dessert, make sure to head to Right Cream in Rosedale. This ice cream parlor started as a pandemic-era delivery service but has quickly become Denver’s must-visit sweet treat. You’ll find a new favorite with imaginative flavors like the Cookies & C.R.E.A.M., and horchata spiced shortbread crumble. Their shop is adjacent to Denver Beer Co.’s South Downing location, giving you even more indulging opportunities. 

Rosenberg’s 

Rosenberg’s in Five Point & Aurora has you covered for bagel lovers. With a system that replicates N.Y. water, they’re serving up authenticity. Whether you choose a classic or divulge in the house-cured lox, Rosenberg’s always delivers. 

Star Kitchen Chinese Seafood Restaurant

If you’re searching for a bite of Chinese cuisine, head over to Star Kitchen Chinese Seafood Restaurant in Athmar Park for dim sum. Their roving carts are ready to serve up plate after plate of deliciousness, from fried shrimp dumplings with mayo to pork and shrimp shu mai. But, if you’re in a hurry, their entire dim sum menu is also available to go.

My Brother’s Bar

If a mouthwatering burger is what you’re looking for, the J.C.B. at My Brother’s Bar in Highland is your destination. This classic bar has been serving their local-favorite whiskey and J.C.B. burger, which oozes with jalapeno cream cheese, for decades. 

La Fogata Mexican Restaurant

Last but not least, La Fogata Mexican Restaurant in Goldsmith and Hampden South serves a Denver classic: the Mexican Hamburger. This comfort food blend of beef burgers served inside a flour tortilla with refried beans smothered in green chile and topped with melty cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes is a staple of Den-Mex culinary art. 

Denver is in no short supply of culinary delight to tantalize your taste buds and leave you in a food coma. From the fluffy pita and hummus at Safta Restaurant, the mouthwatering bagels and lox at Rosenberg’s, to the satisfying Mexican hamburgers at La Fogata Mexican Restaurant, you’ll never be left in want for something delicious to bite into.
