Reader: Denver Is Criminally Devoid of Places to Eat After 10 p.m.
Danielle Lirette
Denver doesn't have a reputation as a city for night owls, but some kitchens burn the midnight oil (or at least cook with it) long after last call at the city's bars. We recently cruised through several neighborhoods to capture the late-night scene at spots that keep the party going with pizza, pancakes, burgers, gyros, doughnuts and other craveable fare. But our list of the ten places where Denver eats after 2 a.m. just made people hungry for more. Says Scott: 
Denver is criminally devoid of places to eat past 9 or 10 p.m. I've so far only been to Jerusalem restaurant on this list. It was okay for 3 a.m., but mediocre food otherwise. Meh.
Adds Chris: 
Pete's Kitchen is awesome but the rest of those places are shitholes
 Some readers pointed to places that didn't make the list. Suggests Steve: 
Leela's blows all of these places away.
Notes Nikki: 
You forgot Sexy Pizza Cap Hill. Open 'til 3 a.m. on weekends.
And then there's this from Brian: 
Considering Colorado’s legalization of a drug that is known to stimulate appetite, I’m betting these places get lots of business.
