Located in the Source, an artisan food market remodeled from an 1880s brick foundry, the casual but upscale Acorn consistently delivers on a changing, shareable menu of oak-fired meats, some of Denver's best meatballs, and a seasonal selection of on-point salads (the kale and apple is a mainstay). Make a reservation to skip the wait and don't be afraid to try larger plates like a 32-ounce oak grilled prime ribeye that feeds three. If you can't snag a reservation or just want to grab appetizers and a drink, arrive early and sit at the bar; you'll get to watch experienced bartenders whip up creative concoctions like the "Nectar of the Night," made with añejo tequila, noilly prat ambre, nardini amaro, agave, and orange flower water.
