Shazz Cafe - Closed

4262 Lowell Blvd. Denver, CO 80211 | Northwest Denver | 303-477-1407

Location Description:

If you can get past the name, the offbeat location and the goofy philosophy espoused on the website -- "Shazz is that rare harmony between what is and what is desired, or that equally elusive state of finding ourselves exactly where we want to be" -- you'll discover that Shazz is an excellent restaurant. The service is friendly, the room nicely eclectic -- and the food amazing. The kitchen crew not only knocks out chef/owner Benny Kaplan's borderless and globe-trotting menu, but does so with remarkable talent and restraint.
