Argyll - Closed

2700 E. 3rd Ave. Denver, CO 80206 | Central Denver | 720-382-1117

Location Description:

Despite the "gastropub" label, Argyll is a nice, comfortable basement restaurant that also happens to pour a nice glass of whiskey and pull a fine pint of Murphy's. But alcoholic amusements aside, the real draw at Robert Thompson's place is the food, thanks to the kitchen being run by chef Sergio Romero. These guys are masters of the subtle twist -- turning fairly standard, pub-ish comfort foods (Scotch eggs and chips and the like) into true masterworks, then bringing that same skill to bear on more upscale plates as well. Don't miss anything that has a sauce as an integral component, and be sure to save enough digestive real estate for at least two baskets of the pub chips with malt vinegar gastrique. They may just be the best potato chips you've ever had.
