Denver’s Acorn restaurant off Brighton and part of the Source building in the RiNo (River North) area is get a well-deserved reputation for really odd and wonderful food options.
We started with the chicken liver pate proving once again that less can be more. I simple presentation with a marvelous sour cherry and pepper compote and perfectly grilled bread was just beautifully balanced.
The simple slate tray added to the overall elegance of the offering.
We continued to gorge ourselves partaking of nearly every food entry: gnocchi, squid ink pasta, mushroom risotto, asparagus salad and the 38 ounce bone-in rib eye.
We gleefully drank the house tap Cabernet Savignon from Cultivar and left needing a long night’s rest and recovery.
