City, O' City

206 E. 13th Ave. Denver, CO 80203 | Central Denver | 303-831-6443

Location Description:

In attempting to redefine Denver's sense of what a vegetarian restaurant should be, City, O' City has redefined what a vegetarian restaurant can be. It's part this, part that, a fusion of French, Mediterranean, Italian and goofy American herbivore tastes, like the result of a collision between a fast-moving coffeehouse and an airborne bistro that tangle midair, then drop through the roof of a hippie pizza joint and tofu warehouse and land on top of a wine salesman. It's also justifiably popular, a hippie-friendly hipster bistro that happens to serve some very good vegetarian food.
