True Food Kitchen

2800 E. 2nd Ave. Denver, CO 80206 | Central Denver | 720-509-7661

Location Description:

True Food Kitchen, a branch of the brand operated by Phoenix-based Fox Restaurant Concepts, features healthy food based on the anti-inflammatory-food pyramid behind Dr. Andrew Weil's prescription for a healthy life. But if you didn't know that -- if you stopped in simply because you noticed people camped in Cherry Creek and wanted to see what was worth waiting for in the cold, or because you peeked in the windows and liked the looks of the place (it feels rather spa-ish, with skinny trees lining a wall, apple-green banquettes and lemon-yellow chairs) -- what would you think of the food? For the most part, you'd think it was very good, with flavors pulled from across the globe and enough choices to suit everyone in your group, from dressing-on-the-side types to meat-and-potato eaters ― though here the meat is bison and the potatoes are skin-on and sweet.
