Today on the Bite Tonight: The Kitchen
The next stop on our Denver adventure was to the Kitchen on 16th St, LoDo (Lower Downtown). The Kitchen joined the Denver community in 2012 bringing a strong farm to table presence to the food scene. With a “community through food” philosophy, the Kitchen believes that people come together by sharing meals. See how they ranked.

Michelle, Amanda and I went for Community Hour (daily from 3-6 P.M.). Featuring a shareable menu.
Roasted Nuts: Candied nuts. Delicious!
Garlic Fries: Served with what tasted like a homemade warm ketchup. Light garlic flavor with a nice crispy outside.
Hummus: Served with thick toast which was the perfect tool for scooping. I really liked that the hummus was hearty and had some texture to it. Nice garlic flavor.
Roasted Beets and Chevre: Slightly sweet beet and a creamy, tangy goat cheese.
The Community Hour menu was perfect because we got to try a handful of different bites for only $3-4 each. It was perfect for sharing and creating dialogue. Each of us took turns trying each item and commenting on them. Service was good and our server did a good job of recommending the local liquors the Kitchen offered. The exposed brick gave the dining room an industrial feel, but the atmosphere was warm and inviting. The Kitchen is a nonprofit and is doing great things to support the community. The Community Night dining service donates 20% of sales to help plant gardens in Denver public schools. If the good food doesn’t bring you in, stop by and support the kids!
