In that cute stretch of 32nd Avenue next door to Mondo Vino is Venue. Open for lunch, dinner and brunch on the weekends, Venue is Holly Hartnett’s (formerly of Table 6) baby.
I wondered into Venue yesterday to get some work done and have a quiet lunch. “What should I have?” I asked Holly. “The burger, I think it’s one of the best in town.” Now, that’s a bold statement. I love burgers and have tried them all over Denver. My favorite in the entire world is at the Spotted Pig in New York City – but I digress. The burger at Venue truly is one of the best in Denver. It’s simple, well seasoned and delicious.
That was just lunch, Venue also has a fun and affordable happy hour. Beer, wine and cocktails are ½ off and snacks range from $3.50 – $12.00. Try the individual shrimp with grits.
Tonight check out Venue’s “Tour of Italy” wine dinner. Holly is offering five courses with wine pairings for just $60 per person.
