240 Union Restaurant

240 Union Blvd. Lakewood, CO 80228 | West Denver Suburbs | 303-989-3562

Location Description:

Longevity is an important word in any restaurateur's lexicon. Every house wants to see its ten-year anniversary in the rearview; most never get there. But 240 Union -- the New American outpost founded in 1989 by Michael Coughlin, Noel Cunningham and chef Matt Franklin -- is still going strong, because this restaurant has never just settled. Food this good doesn't come from coasting; it results when the crew comes to the grills fresh every night, stepping up to each shift as though it were the first one.
