Best Comeback Denver 2007 - Solera



5410 E. Colfax Ave.

Denver, CO 80220


Map & Details>>

Goose Sorensen, owner of Solera, has been through a rough couple of years. Strategic errors, an attempted (and ultimately abortive) expansion into the breakfast market, the dissolution of a bad partnership -- all of these things (combined with Sorensen's forays into the national food scene that kept him away from Denver for days or weeks at a time) were dangerous distractions that put Solera in danger of losing its edge, that fine blade of forward-looking innovation crossed with comforting classicism that was always its greatest strength. Now, though, Sorensen has put all those entanglements behind him and is joyously re-engaged in the day-to-day business of his kitchen -- and it shows in every plate coming out of that kitchen. Welcome back.

The food is excellent! The suggested wine pairings made it even better! It's not cheap. But, as they say, you get what you pay for.

I live about 30 minutes away and I've driven by many "comparable" restaurants more than a couple of times to visit this jewel on Colfax.


Ignore previous is great and atmosphere is even better. Their wine tastings on Wednesday are a lot of fun and if you like calamari, their's is amazing!!
