The Deal

$48 for a Latin American food-and-drink pairing for two ($101 value)

  • Potato and ham croquettes with refreshing mojitos

Limón

The menu explores Central and South America as well as the Caribbean with small plates such as slow-roasted pork tamales and shrimp ceviche with cucumber, radish, onions, and fresh lime juice. Dark-chocolate ice cream and a moist banana tres leches cake end meals on a sweet note, following sips of a modified mojito made with house-infused pineapple rum.

When most people go on vacation, they return with souvenirs for friends. But when Chef Alex Gurevich traveled to Latin America, he came back with a plan. Inspired by the rich cultural traditions in the eclectic cuisine he sampled, Gurevich decided to create a space that embraced the spirit of Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. The result: Limón, and the fresh, cultural-blending novoandino style of cooking that fills its menu. And it hasn't gone unnoticed. Shortly after opening, 5280 magazine praised the eatery’s devotion to bold, yet accessible flavors, placing Limón on its list of Denver’s Best New Restaurants in 2006.

The menu’s shareable small plates are divided into three sections, each featuring classic dishes as well as refined interpretations of staples from a specific region. Grilled skirt steak with chimichurri sauce and empanadas stuffed with corn and black beans evoke the flavors of Argentina while the ropa vieja’s slow-roasted shredded beef stamps diners' passports and pushes them on a plane to Cuba. Even the drink menu transcends borders, with its caipirinhas—Brazil’s famously simple cocktail of cachaça, muddled lime, and cane sugar—alongside more familiar margaritas with house-made sweet-and-sour mix.

The exposed brickwork and mocha-brown walls of Limón’s dining area create the same sense of warmth and coziness as the menu. Dark wooden tables nestle against high-backed, terracotta-red booths or an avocado-green half wall, while other seats border the front wall’s picturesque windows. At night, the sconces, teardrop-shaped pendant lamps, and burning piles of unnecessary travel guides light the space, lending a soft glow to the entire room.
