Carm & Gia Metropolitan
This mid-mod joint opened in February 2020 in a refurbished beauty parlor, where it offers an expansive menu that includes juicy burgers, hot dogs, breakfast burritos and much more. The eatery pays homage to the things that owner Razz Cortes-Maceda cherishes, including Chicago, her hometown, and Denver, her adopted hometown for over 25 years. Its first two years were fraught, though, as it weathered the height of the COVID pandemic only to fall victim to a fire in June 2021 that resulted in a seven-month closure. Carm & Gia reopened in March 2022 with the same high-quality food and friendly service we fell for at first bite.
