This restaurant is one of the more popular places to go for sushi in Denver. Its menu also offers tempura, teriyaki, and a variety of traditional Japanese soups like Udon, but the sushi is the best bet. The atmosphere is often lively with patrons crowding just inside the door, friendly hostesses, waiters and waitresses buzzing around, and plenty of noise coming from the dining room. The Sushi Den is known for bringing out the local trendsetters and is the place to be seen. Lunchtime, however, is more relaxed and quiet.

Ozo Coffee is the perfect place to unwind with a cup while visiting the busy Pearl Street Mall. There are three other Ozo locations in the city in addition to its 'Roastery' where you can also visit for wholesale purchases.

Nonetheless, to say they take their coffee seriously is an understatement, with glass beakers, sieves and other mad-scientist tools used to extract the perfect cup, Ozo definitely knows coffee.
