DENReview

Five floors up in the Lower Highlands, El Five’s patio has a beautiful panorama view of the downtown skyline and a tapas and cocktail menu that’s just as good as the sights. The Mediterranean food is a bit pricey, but it’s definitely worth the splurge for a nice night out. Make sure to get the shawarma spiced lamb ribs, and if the patio tables are full, a seat at the bar has the same views and faster drinks service.

Brider

Brider is fast casual, but the food is sit-down restaurant quality. Make it you go-to lunch spot in LoDo.
