Sushi Restaurant
“Hands down best sushi restaurant in town. I’ve been going to sushi Den since I move to Denver in 2002. Amazing ambiance and great service. A little far from downtown but so worth the trip. ”

Cajun / Creole Restaurant
“Great brunch! Can be pretty busy on the weekends so you will want to get there early or just know you may have to hang and wait a little while with a mimosa, bloody mary or coffee.”

Neighbourhood
“You'll come for the classic burger joint that is the Cherry Cricket, but you may find yourself staying in the divorcée haven of Cherry Creek for a few other food spots, like American eatery Second Home Kitchen + Bar, raw fish bar Sushi Tazu, French bistro Le Merise, and breakfast mainstay Syrup. And you'd be a fool to miss Harman's Eat & Drink for... eating and drinking!”

American Restaurant
“A Denver institution featuring homemade blueberry pop tarts and french press coffee.”

Burger Restaurant
“Cherry Cricket about 2 and half miles away is considered one of the best burger places in Denver. It’s also in the Cherry Creek area which has a mall, shops, and restaurants. The restaurant is low key and great food bar like atmosphere but the surrounding area is bougie. I like to go there if I’m craving a really good burger.”

Bar
“Looking for a dive bar with great food? This is the spot. Sputnik has many vegan options (I highly recommend their weekend brunch), as well as food for omnivorous diets. Located on South Broadway, there’s a lot to see in the area, and it’s a great place to start a weekend day in the city.”
