Owner Chris Sargent set out to create a neighborhood restaurant for northwest Denver, but Brazen quickly turned into a destination for the entire city. Whether you sit by the fire pit on the park-side patio or inside the loud and lively dining room, you'll appreciate Brazen's unpretentious, seasonally inspired small plates. If you can, come early to nab a seat at the chef's counter, where you'll find yourself treated like a VIP.
