Once upon a time, there was a restaurant in Denver. Started by an entrepreneur in the 1920s, it was called Coney Island, third in a chain of five, and it served good old comfort food. Over 70 years later, the restaurant reopened a few doors down under the management of the original restaurateur's grandsons. Sam's No. 3 still serves the same comforting food “with an attitude.” Plunge into the Kitchen Sink Skillet for breakfast, while enjoying the simple, nostalgia-inducing interior. American, Greek, and Mexican fare await you at servings that exceed the prices nicely.
Tamayo is a snappy restaurant which has done an outstanding job of carving a look-at-me type niche by offering highbrow Mexican fare in a highbrow setting. It might possibly be the only Mexican restaurant that does not boast of award-winning margaritas. It instead offers an outstanding wine list. The massive tile mural behind the bar immediately indicates that this place is special. The menu adds to this feel by offering dishes such as Halibut with Spicy Chipolte and Filet Mignon with Guacamole. This rates high as a good place to impress. The Rooftop Lounge and the Bar & Lounge are open all days of the week from 5p onwards.
Specializing in Coastal Mexican fare, Lola offers an array of traditionally prepared dishes - from Ceviches and Smoked Duck Gorditas, to Whole Grilled Fish and Carne Asada smothered in dark molé.

Café Brazil, located in the Highland neighborhood in a bright pink brick building, specializes in flavors of old Brazil. So if you are headed here, prepare your mouth for some of the best black bean soup in the West. The décor is nothing special and the place is tiny, but this makes for a cozy setting perfect for a romantic escapade. The Peixe de Angola, a mixture of shrimp and bacalau in a coconut cream sauce, sprinkled with cashews and herbs, is definitely a flavorful menu highlight. A nice, sometimes exotic variety of South American wines are available.
