1365 Osage St. Denver, CO 80204 | Central Denver | 303-595-3666

Location Description:

Specializing not just in Japanese food -- not just sushi or teriyaki or noodles served in Hello Kitty bowls -- but in the country food of rural northern Japan, Domo stands as a unique and stunning vision of a restaurant run by someone (chef and owner Gaku Homma, in this case) who knows exactly what he wants and never strays from his path of offering the best and most authentic dining experience possible. The restaurant itself (including its Zen garden and Japanese cultural center) is beautiful, but so is the food, which comes with seven side dishes that are a meal in themselves.
