Denver Deep Dish Opens New LoHi Location Tomorrow With Chicago-Style Pies

Jason McGovern has been serving up deep-dish pizza out of a window at the back of the Bar Car for a couple of years, but he's finally getting his own place. His stand-alone Denver Deep Dish opens tomorrow in Lower Highland on a stretch of West 38th Avenue that's seeing a mini-restaurant revival to help residents overcome the loss of many of the old-school Italian joints that were part of the neighborhood for decades. And McGovern recognizes that Northside history; in addition to Chicago-style pizza, wings and other bar bites, he's created a couple of sandwiches that pay tribute to Carbone's, the beloved Italian sandwich shop that closed nearly two years ago.

Pizza is still the main attraction at Denver Deep Dish, with signature combos like sausage and onion with mild peppers and pepperoni, pineapple and jalapeño. There's even a green chile version that combines the best of the Windy City with the flavors of the Southwest. All of the pies can be ordered in thin crust, too, cut into squares, which McGovern says is the tradition in Chicago taverns.

Smoked wings come doused in three different house-made sauces: barbecue, buffalo or spicy buffalo. A list of sandwiches includes the Nick and the Rose, both named for the owners of Carbone's.

The bar features two beers on tap from Diebolt Brewing (located just a few blocks away), as well as several Chicago beers from Goose Island Beer Company. McGovern says he'll have at least one rotating tap devoted to neighborhood breweries like Hogshead, Diebolt, Crooked Stave and the soon-to-open Factotum Brewhouse. A short cocktail list also honors the neighborhood, with names like Northside Manhattan and LoHi Martini.

Denver Deep Dish opens Saturday, December 27 at 11 a.m. and will be giving away prizes -- T-shirts, gift cards and koozies -- all day.
