Comfort Food that leaves you
“All Shook Up”
Everyone has their favorite comfort food that brings them a sense of ease after a busy work week. This might be the food you grew up on or were served at Grandma’s house. Now that you are older, you can find your comfort food outside of the house at restaurants such as Cherry Creek’s Second Home Kitchen & Bar.
In a setting at once chic and sophisticated and yet relaxed and warm, you can feast upon classic American dishes such as fried chicken or an indulgent full stack of fluffy buttermilk pancakes. On Sundays, Second Home Kitchen & Bar turns into an ongoing celebration of comfort food beginning with “Sunday Pajama Brunch” followed by “All You Can Eat Fried Chicken” on Sunday evenings from 5 to 10 p.m. This means you can potentially begin your Sunday with pancakes in the form of Elvis’ favorite “Graceland Pancakes” made with bananas and topped with peanut butter whipped cream, a side of bacon, and drizzled with enough maple syrup to make the mouth of the “King of Rock and Roll” water. It is a dish sure to leave you “all shook up.”
If later on on Sunday night, you find yourself listening to Elvis’ “Are Your Lonesome Tonight?” as you sit cooped up in the “Heartbreak Hotel,” make yourself back out to Second Home for some more dressed up comfort. Though it’s always crowded, you are sure to find some room to cozy up to a table to enjoy all the fried chicken and fixings your heart can bear. Hot chicken blanketed in a layer of crispy, breaded pleasure comes served aside classic garlic mashed potatoes whipped to a heavenly creaminess. Fresh green beans, house made coleslaw, and buttery, flaky biscuits come with a side of Stranahan’s maple syrup to tie it all together with just a little extra sweetness. To wash it all down, enjoy bottled beers half off with the purchase of a fried chicken dinner.
One Sunday at Second Home Kitchen & Bar and you will be blanketed with the ease delivered by the pleasures of American comfort food so good it could have come right out of your own home kitchen, albeit with a lot less work. Without having to even enter into a kitchen, you can enjoy home cooking that is served with unexpected twists that even Elvis would approve of. In the end, it is sure to take you away to a place far from “Heartbreak Hotel,” leaving you “all shook up” and ready for more Second Home comfort.
Second Home Kitchen & Bar is located in Denver’s Cherry Creek neighborhood at 150 Clayton Lane Denver CO 80206, Tel: 303-253-3000.
