Bistro Barbes

5021 East 28th Avenue Denver, CO 80207 | East Denver | 720-398-8085

Location Description:

If Denver were a different city, or if dining trends had gone in a different direction, Bistro Barbès might have ended up a higher-end restaurant. Chef/owner Jon Robbins’s original vision was to create a brick-and-mortar, prix-fixe-only version of Gypsy Kitchen, a pop-up supper club that he’d hosted around town. “But no one’s eating Michelin-star food,” he says. “It might be going out of fashion.” But good food never goes out of fashion, and so Robbins turned the former Park Hill home of Pary’s on 28th into Bistro Barbès, a tiny eatery filled with big, big flavors. Robbins’s experience with classic technique shows in his elegant sauces (his nickname is Beurre Blanc), and his time in Paris is reflected at this restaurant, which feels like an intersection of French and North African cultures with a little Denver thrown in for good measure.
