"Root down" is a jazz term, and at his new restaurant, chef/owner Justin Cucci riffs on all things green. He even recycled an old gas station as part of the ambitious project, which resulted in one of the coolest spaces in town, filled with retro chic inside -- and with a stunning view of the Denver skyline outside. The kitchen emphasizes locally sourced ingredients, and Cucci's even growing some of his own in Root Down's two gardens. While the food is uneven, the bar is unbeatable.
