The restaurant is beautiful inside with its gorgeous wood feature wall, indoor/outdoor fireplace, contemporary and natural décor, and outdoor patio.

This fall, you can try Fried Brussel Sprouts with with a garlic, bacon, lemon and balsamic reduction as well as an Ahi Tuna Carpaccio in a ginger soy reduction sauce with edamame and wonton chips.

The restaurant was founded five years ago by Jimmy Lambatos, a 40-year veteran of the Denver Restaurant scene. In the 1970s Jimmy arrived in Colorado from New York to attend school at the University of Colorado. He started working at the (infamous) Colorado Mining Company Restaurant in Glendale where he ultimately became the executive chef. In the early 1980s he partnered to open the iconic Footers Restaurant and Catering Company in Capitol Hill. (Jimmy’s son now runs the award winning catering company!) He then partnered to open a small, fast, casual sandwich company you may have heard of---Quiznos. With its 2003 Superbowl ad, Jimmy (or Chef Jimmy), became the face of Quiznos and spent the following year promoting Quiznos nationally, getting to meet many famous people, such as Cameron Diaz, and even appearing on Jay Leno. In addition, from 2008-2011, Jimmy opened and operated Baur’s Ristorante near the Denver Performing Arts Center in Downtown Denver. Chef Jimmy certainly has the experience to guarantee you great food and impeccable service. He looks forward to welcoming you to his latest restaurant endeavor.
"Please let me know when you're coming over so I can
welcome you to my house. I am always looking forward to meeting and serving new friends and family." –Jimmy Lambatos
