Location Description:

Those of us who lamented the closing of restaurant mogul Robert Thompson's gastropub of the same name in Cherry Creek will breathe a sigh of relief that the new incarnation, no longer sporting the ungainly designation, still features hip versions of English pub classics, like that killer Scotch egg with the miraculously unctuous yolk. Also returning are house-made charcuterie like a humble but pork-heavy country pate and a sleeker, smoother duck liver mousse. Fans of London pub grub will appreciate the Indian influence in the tamarind chicken curry and in savory-leaning desserts, like a chocolate mousse touched with masala and tempered by salted almonds. John Broening, late of the now defunct Le Grande Bistro, adds his experience and wisdom to a large but tight menu. Done up in an eclectic Scottish and English theme accented by reclaimed and repurposed odds and ends, the only recognizable feature from the old Las Margaritas is the sun-drenched glass atrium fronting 17th Avenue.
