Central Bistro & Bar

It may call itself Central Bistro & Bar and characterize itself straightforwardly as an American restaurant, but the eatery's aspirations take it far from the middle of the road. The menu collects favorite comfort foods from across the country, then gives them a just-clever-enough twist. For instance, the Wisconsin cheese curds come with a sauce of preserved tomatoes, rhubarb chutney sweetens the chicken breast, and the mac and cheese is enriched by mascarpone and topped with crab.

Central Bistro & Bar's design also pays tribute to American heritage. The weathered materials—reclaimed from boxcars—complement brick walls and mod light fixtures, such as a giant lamp spelling out "HOT" that's actually half of an old hotel sign. Close inspection also reveals vintage pieces that owner Isiah Salazar found throughout the city, rather than in just one old guy's basement.

As cool as the decor and menu are, Central owner Isiah Salazar told Eater Denver that "the people are what I'm most proud of." Denver Post's William Porter would probably agree with that assessment, noting that "waiters are cheery, quick with good-natured banter . . . it makes for a warm feeling." The bar extends the warmth with a roster of classic and house cocktails centered on perhaps the most American of spirits, whiskey.
