Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The Black Pearl marked its third anniversary last week with a big bash that proved this polished place hasn't lost any of its luster. In fact, the restaurant has come into its own over the past few years, losing some of the self-consciousness that marked its early days and settling into a comfortable, upscale existence on South Pearl Street.

The kitchen continues to turn out the contemporary American cuisine that won Jason Sheehan over early on -- but the patio is also a major draw, with a fire pit that's just the thing to heat up conversations even as these summer nights cool off. Happy hour on the patio runs from 4-6 p.m. -- and the bar pours it on with bottomless mimosas at weekend brunch.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
