PART 01:

DINING Among many other things, 2020 taught us just how much we love restaurants. Dining is about so much more than food. It’s a convivial experience that brings people and communities together. And if that’s not enough, Cherry Creek’s lineup of top notch eateries is undeniably one of the most impressive in the state. From mom-and-pop bistros in tucked away corners to names that have gained nationally notoriety, our

n es

neighborhood has it all.

Samuel L. Jackson said it best in Pulp Fiction. “This IS a tasty burger.” Every possible topping including different types of bacon, pulled pork and an attention grabber for us with pastrami. There are all sorts of glorious concoctions including a gluten-free menu. We can’t ignore what this destination of delicious brings to Cherry Creek. Never has a bad burger been so darn good.

Chef Josh Sutcliff knows his brunch. Whether your game is sweet or savory - from avocado toast, blueberry pancakes and stuffed French Toast to Steak Frites, House Smoked Salmon or the Ham Cubano – you’re going to be winning.

Hapa Sushi

There’s a reason Hapa has more than one location in Colorado, and why they moved down the street to a larger space. We’ve spoken with Hawaiian native and Chef Scott Nakasone, and the man is a seafood aficionado. Our readers agree. Enjoying an epic meal on that patio or the architectural treat that is their dining room is tough to beat. 3030 E. 2nd Avenue Suite 105 hapasushi.com / @hapasushi

What a way to start the day. Who does beignets in Denver? This is why our readers voted Syrup tops in their class. Crack bacon with brown sugar and black pepper. Waffle sliders! Benedicts of all of kinds. There’s nothing they don’t do, and there’s nothing they don’t do well. They’re as sweet as their namesake. 300 Josephine Street #20 syruprestaurant.com / @syrup_restaurant
