Pete's Kitchen

Danielle Lirette
Unassuming, comfortable, reliable. Though hardly the most sophisticated table in town, Pete’s Kitchen has been sobering up late-night revelers for decades. The crown jewel of the late Pete Contos’s restaurant empire — which includes the Satire Lounge next door — Pete’s Kitchen serves up breakfast staples that can soak up turpentine, as well as solid diner fare, much of which pays homage to Contos’s home country of Greece. It’s only open 24 hours on weekends these days (closing at 9 p.m. the rest of the week), but remains an old Denver classic.
