I stopped in here only for a couple of drinks and to catch a glimpse (not for myself) of whatever football game was on that evening. I had a chance to chat with the bartenders some, and this seems like a genuinely awesome place. The cocktails I had were great, and I love that they grow some of their own vegetables in their front garden. For being hidden away in such a residential area, they stay open and serving quite late, which is always a plus in my book!Recommended for:

For a while, you could say that I was a Root Down addict. I think many Denver locals go through this stage, running straight into Root Down's open patio arms as soon as they finish work to order a blood orange Caipirinha and the Colorado Lamb Sliders. "God, how this combination seems to fall straight from heaven," I would say to fellow co-workers and friends who had not yet seen the light.
There are a few downsides - the biggest being the fact that the bar fills up by 5:15 for happy hour (and you really want to be there during happy hour to get $5-8 plates of delicious food - normally $10-18 on the regular dinner menu). Sometimes the service is slow because of the sheer volume of consumers. But if you're lucky enough to score a table -- and you don't mind crowds -- then I highly recommend eating here.Recommended for:

This is one of our most favorite restaurants located in the Highlands! It serves up organic deliciousness and an ambience that is casual yet fun. The building itself used to be an old garage that was up-cycled into a new hip restaurant that has colorful old telephones as art and old 1950's photos decoupaged on the walls. Try this place for brunch and be sure to get the bottomless blood orange mimosas with the breakfast burrito. Yum!Recommended for:

An amazing eatery in the LoHi neighborhood, Root Down serves up small plates of gorgeous and tasty food that is local and organic. Reservations are tough to get last minute but the bar area is always available for walk-ins. If you can get a seat in the restaurant area, ask for one facing downtown (or if it's warm enough, on the deck)--the views will make you linger.Recommended for:

Located in LoHi, this is a local's favorite. The majority of the food is served tapas style and comes from farms around the area - nothing on the menu will disappoint. If you’re just looking for a drink, the drink menu rivals a book and you can’t go wrong with any cocktail

Amazing!! Wow, I wanna go back already. Such tasty food. We had brunch there and I had steak and eggs. The eggs had cheese cooked into it and the steak was perfect. Bloody Mary to wash it down and I was a happy camper. The wait was long, so make a reservation. Nice friendly staff and cool converted building that looks like it was an old auto shop. Definitely a must try.

This is one of the best restaurants in Denver. I keep going back (and send my friends) and am continously amazed at the food and the service. You are treated like family in a way cool environment (a converted gas station). The owner, Justin Cucci has hit the jackpot with this and its sister restauant, Linger. Both are incredible.

One of my favorite spots in town. The food and atmosphere are excellent. The view off the deck doesn't suck either! As a vegetarian, this is an ideal restaurant for me!Recommended for:

"Root Down aims to connect the neighborhood to a dining experience in the same way ingredients are connected to food. There should be a seamless bond between the elements and experience, which stimulates the senses and draws people in." Some of the most amazing food, service and atmosphere I've experienced in Denver.
