Business trip to Denver’s Cherry Creek district. Excellent bar, restaurant with good beer list and menu. I had the Cuban sandwich and it was delicious. Wonderful atmosphere and good place to watch a game.

The food here is much better than I'd anticipated, and I was delighted that they have a gluten free menu. You must try the bacon-wrapped dates!
