The protein enthusiasts at Good Eatin' Premium Meats vacuum seal natural, antibiotic- and hormone-free meats and seafood to preserve freshness and maximize quality. Good Eatin' procures its meaty masterpieces from local ranchers and suppliers when possible, ensuring that cuts such as the 12-ounce Black Angus new york strip steak ($19.99) woos taste buds with tenderness, rather than jet lag. Two racks of blue-ribbon pork spareribs ($35) await the opportunity to fire-walk across the grill, as breast-meat chicken nuggets ($38 for 10 lbs.) unsuccessfully challenge perch fillets ($44.95) to a game of Go Fish. The protein emporium also specializes in portion-controlled meats for clients with specialized diets, and 10% of the shop's revenue swims like a finned roll of quarters into the piggy banks of community organizations.
Raw Roots Juice Bar & Cafe's staff uses organic and local ingredients to craft its menu of fresh beverages. These include juices containing up to six types of produce and elixirs and smoothies with a host of health benefits. Raw Roots also offers one-, three-, or five-day juice detoxes. Each morning, juice packed with vitamins and minerals is cold pressed, poured into glass jars, and immediately refrigerated. This process prevents the liquid's essential nutrients from degrading, ensuring that the cleanse is as effective as possible.
Since 1982, tourists, professionals, and neighbors have sat side-by-side for breakfast and lunch at the Delectable Egg. Sprinkled around the metro-Denver area, the award-winning morning-and-midday stop continues to dish out fresh food crafted from regional and locally grown ingredients. Anchoring the menu is the Denver omelette, which, just like the Rockies, is filled with ham, peppers, cheese, and farm-fresh eggs. Another popular choice is the California Benedict, which brings together avocado, spinach, and a toasted English muffin beneath a layer of hollandaise sauce. Later in the day, the Delectable Egg switches gears to satisfy lunchtime cravings with burgers, sandwiches, and salads.
The sun has set on the town of Denver, but the neon sign on Winchell’s Donut House is still aglow. The familiar smell of baking donuts wafts out from the 24-hour establishment's door, drawing night owls in for steaming cups of coffee and french crullers, jelly donuts, and moist chocolate muffins. A shift change occurs come daytime; breakfasters replace nocturnal dwellers, chatting over freshly made bagels, spicy egg sandwiches, and meaty burritos before the lunch crowd shows up. The donut shop also offers delivery services throughout the local area, transporting freshly made pastries directly to a home, office, or secret rendezvous point at an all-vegetable convention.
