Googling “Open Sandwich Denver” will inevitably take you to a list of every available sandwich place that is not currently closed. And even offline, Open can also be hard to find in real life. It serves its sandwiches from the back of American Bonded, a dimly-lit cocktail bar known for its great and affordable drinks. The only real indication that Open is there is a small podium bearing its name. But find it you should, as the spot came up with the rather novel concept of reaching out to some of the city’s best chefs and having each one contribute a different sandwich to the menu. Everything is good, but The Lee - a Sichuan French Dip with a ruby-red, tongue-numbing dipping sauce from Hop Alley’s own Tommy Lee - is the one you should make a priority.
