Denver Deep Dish Opens New LoHi Location Tomorrow With Chicago-Style Pies

Jason McGovern has been serving up deep-dish pizza out of a window at the back of the Bar Car for a couple of years, but he's finally getting his own place. His stand-alone Denver Deep Dish opens tomorrow in Lower Highland on a stretch of West 38th Avenue that's seeing a mini-restaurant revival to help residents overcome the loss of many of the old-school Italian joints that were part of the neighborhood for decades. And McGovern recognizes that Northside history; in addition to Chicago-style pizza, wings and other bar bites, he's created a couple of sandwiches that pay tribute to Carbone's, the beloved Italian sandwich shop that closed nearly two years ago.
