Fort Greene

321 E. 45th Ave.
Denver, CO 80216
While living in the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn, Bretton Scott rented out his apartment for a week via Airbnb to a French woman who designed restaurants. She told him he should design a restaurant like his living room -- and that's essentially what did with his new restaurant and bar, Fort Greene, which opened in ­April 2015 at 321 East 45th Avenue in Globeville, a space that was most recently home to Crash 45. Bretton's brother, Aaron Scott, has owned the building since 2008, when the Portulaca Cafe, a decade s­old Slavic speakeasy, moved out and the White Owl moved in; Crash 45 took over in 2011. In addition to Wisconsin bar food, such as beer-­batter-fried cheese curds and a Sheboygan-­style hamburger, Fort Greene serves seasonal dishes, vegetarian options and vegetable sides.
