Tammen's Fish Market

Walking through the front doors of the Denver Central Market, the first thing you'll see is Tammen's seafood counter holding clear-eyed fish like salmon, tuna and halibut, as well as clams, mussels and lobster nestled into the ice along with the occasional octopus or crab. Tammen's supplies fish to Jeff Osaka's Sushi-Rama restaurants, so the goods are guaranteed to be fresh and flavorful. But if you're a bit squeamish about taking home something with its head still on (though you shouldn't be; the staff is knowledgeable and eager to provide guidance on how to cook the whole critter), have a seat at the chef's counter and indulge in one of the daily specials, which range from raw-food preparations like poke and ceviche to monkfish and chips and even a sea urchin soup.
