Look below street level for this Larimer Square treasure, which serves the town's best margaritas in an equally praiseworthy bar. Once you've descended the stairs to this below-ground restaurant/club, the flavor remains tangy and festive through inspired partitioning, a twist of Mexican inspiration, a youthful crowd and a fresh DJ lineup. Lime's food also commands attention: This is reasonably priced but inventive Mexican-American cuisine, from deep-fried flour tortillas that start each meal to excellent desserts. And be sure to say yes to the complimentary shot of tequila that comes in a lime.
