It's refreshing to see a whole new way to sell on a menu. Being able to choose the portion sizes allows someone to really sample many items and of course eat and pay for what you really want. We will be back. Many friends have started to go there and everyone loves it.

Was looking for a new place to have dinner and meet some friends. The reviews of work and class sounded interesting. It is located in an up and coming neighborhood in area called River North or RiNo. This area was basically warehouses and run down buildings until a few years ago. The restaurant is in a building that looks like a couple of high end shipping containers but is really pleasant inside. The menu is fairly simple but interesting. If you are there as a group you can order several different types of meats that come by the weight. Pork, short ribs, chicken, cat fish and even goat. We had the pork, short ribs and chicken. These are meant to be shared. The sides are also diverse and tasty. There are several other appetizing entries and appetizers. The bar is well stocked and comfortable. I really enjoyed the evening. The other great thing about the restaurant is the value. Plenty to eat for 3 and a couple of drinks for about 90 bucks. Not bad. The only draw back is something that plagues many of the new so called hip restaurants in Denver. That is the cement floors. With the large crowd that was present and the moving of chairs, the room was in a constant din. this seems to be a sought after atmosphere. While the dining was great, it was hard to have any sort of conversation. I guess i am just getting old But overall a really fun and tasty place to eat.

I could not hear what anyone else in my party was saying, because the dining room is small, cramped and very noisy on a Saturday night. Truly -- if you have hearing issues or just want to actually have a conversation, find another restaurant, get carryout (they have it), or ask for a patio seat. However, after sipping a pink gin, sharing the empanada appetizer and a salad, and tucking into the fried catfish with polenta and braised greens sides, I didn't much care. After the desserts and some more gin, cared even less; decided that if I were to go deaf, I would at least have had a fantastic meal. I plan to go back -- but on a weekday, when the weather is good and I can sit outside.

This place has a great location near Coors Field. The bar makes very good cocktails and has some good brews on tap. There is a patio space which is nice, since the inside is very noisy.
Food however needs some improvement. Dishes are ordered in size portions...small medium large...so it makes it fun for sharing. We had a medium salad to share, empanadas, fried plantains, and for entrees the goat and lamb. The salad dressing was a lemon vinaigrette which was tasty but a little salty for our taste. The plantains were rolled in salt like a pretzel and some bites were overpoweringly salty. The jus for the goat was also oversalted. The goat meat was prepared like pulled pork, well seasoned, and was very good without the jus. The lamb was perfectly prepared and was the standout of the meal. Blue corn empanadas were tasty. Dessert of blueberry pie was outstanding.
The restaurant itself is on the small side with low ceilings. Noise level was very high since the ceiling is not baffled. We had to practically shout at each other to have a conversation....which of course contributed to the noise level.
This restaurant would be a good choice for a drink before or after a ball game.

It is a nice casual and modern space, but it is very small and there is no much space within your chair and the next table. This place was a little too loud for my taste. The food is good, and I liked the presentation. Cocktails were very good.
