After a five-year stint cooking in San Sebastian and Barcelona, Curt and Deicy Steinbecker moved back to Denver and decided to start a restaurant. They picked up the subterranean space in Cherry Creek North that had been French 250, gave the perpetually dark spot a shot of warmth with golds and reds, and opened Ondo's in the fall of 2009. From the start, they wanted to give diners a true Spanish experience, complete with sherry cocktails, an all-Spanish (and decidedly geeky) wine list, and treats imported from the Iberian peninsula, including conservas, chorizo and some of the best croquetas you'll find outside of Spain. If you're looking for tapas, the Steinbeckers have the top spot in town, offering a true taste of the Mediterranean in the Mile High City.
