Denver has always been a home for foodies. As a city culture, we love to eat out. Denver is well-known as a hotspot for multicultural cuisine and some truly incredible fusion – not to mention our love of homestyle classics. Even families that regularly cook at home also love an outing to our favorite restaurants around town. Of course, since the pandemic, a sit-down dinner in a restaurant hasn’t really been an option. The good news is that our favorite places are still alive and kicking it curbside as some of the best take-out restaurants in Denver.
This year, Denverites are still foodies, but we’re doing it in a whole new way. Delivery and pickup are the new games in town and everyone is joining in. Whether you crave delicious fresh sushi, a classic hamburger with all the fixin’s, or want to try fusion you’ve never tasted before, Denver is still the place to do it. So today, we’re spotlighting five of the best take-out restaurants in Denver to support our local businesses and share some of our favorite eats.
Annette: Homestyle Brunch
Craving a classic brunch that is sure to fill your stomach? You can’t go wrong with Annette. Nestled in the Stanley Marketplace, Caroline Glover and her team are rocking the classics and have a few brunch-originals to die for. Whether you want basket of biscuits, a case of kolaches, crave berry hand-pies, or want a burger on a warm English muffin with a side of fries, Annette has it all. We’re also proud of the Annette team for their COVID activism and dedication to staff-and-customer safety.
Work & Class: Hearty Dinners in American-Latin Hybrid Style
Want a classic Meat-and-Three dinner in the best Denverite hybrid style? Check out Work & Class. They serve classics like roast lamb by the pound and whole rotisserie chickens for the family. Or you can order a variety dinner with some truly amazing sides. Try the Massive Attack (tempura broccoli, asparagus, and avocado in lemon vinaigrette) and end your meal with an unbeatable butterscotch pudding.
Work & Class combines all the best hearty dinner choices from Americana classic meals and Latin family dinners to perfectly suit the Denverite idea of a truly hearty curbside dinner to go.
Sushi Den: Sushi & Japanese Cuisine Classics
Few of us can escape the occasional sushi craving. There is something about fresh fish on fresh rice that fills the tastebuds with delight, and we are no exception. When you absolutely need sushi delivered to your door or picked up curbside, head over to Sushi Den in Platt Park. The preparation is exquisite, the takeout containers are always perfect, and they make a mean 3-day ramen that you won’t forget. If you’re looking for amazing take-out restaurants in Denver, Sushi Den is a great choice.
Spuntino: South Indian and Italian Fusion
The chef pair Cindhura Reddy and Elliot Strathmann who run Spuntino have given it a truly original flare and a taste that we just can’t get over. Of course, what is loved best about this South Indian and Italian fusion menu changes based on who you ask. For some, it’s the samosas and lamb, and for others, it’s the arancini and pappardelle. Yet another group swear by the delicious cocktails that are also on menu and the classic desserts.
Tap & Burger: Burgers and Bar Food
Sometimes, what you really need is an enormous, juicy burger. When that craving comes, turn to Tap & Burger, an amazing three-location restaurant in Highland, Sloan’s Lake, and DTC. You can build your own burger with a wide choice of patties, burger construction style, and fixin’s so that your beef-experience (or mushroom if you’re veggie) is exactly the way you like it. In addition to amazing burgers, they also serve a delicious variety of classic bar foods including chicken tenders, empanadas, and onion rings. And, of course, to-go booze.
