Bonnie Brae Tavern

Run by the Dire family since 1934, Bonnie Brae Tavern is far more than just a restaurant. Regulars and neighbors from every walk of life come in to enjoy a solid meal, a familiar face and the slow pace of change. Favorites like the green chile, wonton-wrapped rellenos, hefty burgers and home-style pizzas (new to Denver when the tavern introduced them shortly after World War II) show the range of Italian, Mexican and American influences that have shaped Denver’s eating habits for decades. The Bonnie Brae isn’t a relic stuck in the past; it’s a living tribute to this city’s history and an ongoing reminder of where we’ve been and where we’re going.
