Coleman's Taste of Detroit Soul Food - Closed

2622 Welton St. Denver, CO 80205 | Downtown Denver | 303-296-3389

Location Description:

Henry Coleman knows from Detroit soul food, Detroit comfort food, Detroit's streetside, slapdash, eat-while-walking cuisine. From behind the rail of his kitchen at Coleman's (in the former home of Ethel's House of Soul), he knocks up specials (roasted barbecued chicken breast with greens and rice and gravy, if you're lucky), bakes the cornbread, slow-cooks his brisket and hot links, and fries up an incredibly good fried chicken.
