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

The Cherry Creek neighborhood went into mourning when Greg Goldfogel closed Amore last year. (The space it once occupied across from Little Ollie's s slated to become a Hudson's steakhouse.) But Goldfogel gave Denver a real consolation prize with Alto Restaurant, the spot he opened in the former home of Sambucca at 1320 15th Street.

Since February 2007, Alto has been serving up contemporary American cuisine and often live music. And starting today, May 20, it will be open for lunch Tuesday through Friday. Just in time, too, because the intimate patio should make this a perfect spot for a long, leisurely lunch on these unexpectedly hot days. -- Paticia Calhoun

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.
