Lunch is getting just a little better in Denver, starting tomorrow with a lunchtime pop-up at Mister Tuna and a sushi giveaway at P.F. Chang's. And one of our favorite barbecue spots will soon add Friday lunch. Keep reading for the details on all three.
3033 Brighton Boulevard
Troy Guard's new RiNo eatery has been toying with the idea of adding lunch permanently and has already pulled off one lunchtime pop-up in September to test the waters. Mister Tuna will serve lunch again tomorrow, October 27, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The menu is heavy on roasted meats like rotisserie lamb and pork shoulder; the former gets made into a sandwich while the latter tops a burrito bowl. There's also a bison pastrami sandwich, entree-sized salads, midday cocktails and a dessert of the day. Reservations are recommended. If daily lunch at Mister Tuna sounds as good to you as it does to us, you'll be there voting with your dollars.

This dive bar/Texas-style barbecue/music hall combo in Globeville is only open four days a week and currently only serves lunch on Saturdays. But owner Jeff Cornelius is adding a few new draws to the already craveable destination just in time for Globe Hall's one-year anniversary. Beginning November 4, the bar and eatery will add lunch on Fridays, which will now include smoked wings and mac and cheese along with the usual favorites. And Cornelius also just rolled out a new Globe Hall food truck named Lil’ Betty (as the younger sister of the barbecue's enormous outdoor smoker named Black Betty), which will be hitting various events and festivals around town. Check Globe Hall's Facebook page for first-anniversary events and food-truck appearances.

"Free" and "sushi" are two words you seldom hear together, but P.F. Chang's is changing that — at least for a day. All Denver locations of the Chinese restaurant chain are giving away spicy tuna rolls and California rolls tomorrow, October 27. The offer is only good in-house and can't be combined with any other deals (not even happy hour), but no other purchases are required. There's a limit of one free roll per customer, but no limit on the number of orders per table. The sushi giveaway starts at lunch and continues until closing time.
