Located in LoDo, Denver’s lower Downtown, right in Larimer Square, lies Euclid Hall. First built as a house, once known as a brothel and Soapy Smith’s Eagle Bar, Euclid Hall now serves up innovative, sophisticated pub food from around the globe. With a plethora of craft beers, cocktail concoctions, and clever lunch and dinner choices, Euclid Hall became one of my top spots. See how they ranked.

Avery White Rascal: Citrus and spice. Nice!
Chicken Schnitzel Sandwich: Grilled jalapeño cheddar bread, aioli, apple cabbage caraway slaw. Holy Hell! This sandwich was insane. The schnitzel was perfectly crispy on the outside, but juicy and tender on the inside. The apple cabbage slaw provided the perfect sweet crunch. The bread was toasted and didn’t get soggy against the creamy aioli. This sandwich was the shit!
Carnitas Papas Fritas (pork French fries): Tomatillo green chile, cheddar curds and goat cheese, cilantro, chile lime fries. Just when I thought it couldn’t get better, the poutine came out. I am huge fan of tangy goat cheese and this went great with the salty fries and shredded pork. The tomatillo green chile added just enough spice. Now, I am not one of those people that get a soapy aftertaste when eating cilantro, but I do think it can be overpowering and ruin a dish. In this case, it was fresh and subtle and cut thr0ugh the heavy, greasy (in a good way) fries.
Service was good and the dining room was spread out with seating both upstairs and downstairs. Euclid Hall has an industrial feel to it while still being an upscale eatery. Quality is the focus and it shows down to the very last detail. The menu has everything from Pad Thai Pig Ears to Beef Marrow Bones and Foie Gras. They make their own sausages as well as their own hand ground, house cured mustards. If you get a chance, swing by and check out Euclid Hall.
