Jezebel's

3301 Tejon St. Denver, CO 80211 | Northwest Denver | 303-433-3060

Location Description:

Need some Southern comfort? In late 2012, husband-and-wife team Scott Durrah and Wanda James -- the people behind the Caribbean-flavored 8 Rivers -- along with general manager Robert Perry and chef Leo Harvey opened Jezebel's in a hot part of Highland. The restaurant occupies the former home of Squeaky Bean, which started as a drug store at the turn of the last century, and that history shows in the old tiled floor and big windows. But the space has gotten an update with a big bar, stools upholstered with faux purple alligator (which are often occupied by Nuggets) and, most important, an actual kitchen. And that kitchen stays busy day and night, cranking out out what James calls “crafted comfort food” -- authentic Southern fare fueled by their collective time in Texas, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi, including great fried chicken (gluten-free!), shrimp and grits, fried okra and a perfect sweet-potato pie.
