Taco Place
$$
“This isn't your typical Mexican food. A little twist on everything, but so delicious. We call it "Nouveau Mexican". If the weather is nice, opt to sit on the giant patio upstairs. Try the garden guac, or guac with rattlesnake chorizo! Great margs too! Always fun, whether eating or just grabbing some drinks. (A serious tequila lounge opens up downstairs in the evening).”

Chinese Restaurant
$$
“The second act from chef Tommy Lee of Uncle ramen is a major hit in RiNo. The menu focuses classic regional Chinese fare served family-style in a hip-hop fueled dining room. Diners should order the steamed eggplant (pictured here) and be sure to try the excellent cocktails, but don’t ignore the thoughtful wine list.”

New American Restaurant
$$$
“A wood-fired cooking station dominates the open kitchen that anchors this RiNo restaurant’s dining room. Owner Steve Redzikowski (who also runs Oak at Fourteenth and Brider) charms diners with creative new American dishes that combine worldly flavors and classic techniques. At lunch, start with the kale and apple salad. For dinner, order the pork rinds and oak-roasted mussels.”
