Bear gives this place more than one paw! Check out one of Denver's newest restaurants in the BallPark District, close by Coors Field.   An upbeat, downtown restaurant that features cuisine rooted in the American and Scandinavian culinary tradition.  

We were in the mood for a new spot and selected this for a special occasion - our 12th wedding anniversary.  The staff  rocked - great work Josh.  

Chef/Owner Ryan Leinonen kicks it with great dishes - I'll  attempt to recreate his Pan Roasted RedBird Farm Chicken Breast with a Bacon Mustard Vinigrette.  KILLER GOOD!    
If you're in the mood for a starter or two - Aquavit Cured Salmon & Truffle Tater Tots hit the spot.  Enjoy! 
Every so often we take a day off from cooking too enjoy the great food scene here in Colorado (Okay, a more often that not!!)  Colorado is busting out all over; amazing restaurants, bistros, pubs, and diners covering every dining experience imaginable; all the worldwide cuisines you crave!  Colorado's home to award winning chef's, growers, and food artisans.  We have family farms, amazing lineup of Farmers Market's around the state, and our very own Wine Country!

So where do we start?  How 'bout a few favorite watering holes today.  We'll add our favorite stomping grounds, regions, artisans, and Chefs in the next few months - you gotta have a reason to return!  The restaurant list below is just a start - select the restaurant name and we'll take you straight to Open Table - Make a reservation tonight & Eat Well!
