Through January, the the Tuesday Tastings menu line-up has been designed to help guests keep their New Year's resolutions with dishes that are full-flavored but low in fat. They'll also fall within the themes of Smoke, Fermenting and Pickling, Eggs and Resolution.

Lower48 Kitchen won Best New Restaurant in the Best of Denver 2014, so this series should be something special. For reservations or more information, call the restaurant at 303-942-0262 or visit
