Inspired by the Hawaiian term hapa, which describes a harmonious blend of Asian and American cultures, the chefs at Hapa Sushi Grill & Sake Bar strive to balance dynamic flavors with every dish. They follow traditional Japanese techniques but incorporate influences from American, Hawaiian, and Japanese cuisine to fill their lunch and dinner menus with original combinations. Kalua pork peking wraps fold around Hawaiian-style pulled pork and the Poke Don coats fresh ahi tuna or salmon in a house poke sauce and sesame seeds. Sushi rolls range from basic california and shrimp tempura rolls to original creations, such as the XXX Roll, a core of tempura asparagus wrapped in hamachi and jalapeños, seared with olive oil, drizzled with ponzu, and played by Vin Diesel.
Widely agreed upon as a good food to eat when you're hungry, a sushi dinner is more than an opportunity to practice your chopstick skills.

Sonoda's 550 Broadway's public-facing prep area showcases chefs' chopping skills as they stuff sushi specialty rolls with creative ingredients such as jalapeño masago. For fully cooked fare, piping-hot tempuras and teriyakis nestle onto rectangular plates draped in more elegant garnishes than the Cabbage Patch Kids at prom. Amber track lighting snakes between upside-down parasols suspended overhead, and exposed-brick walls imbue the establishment with an atmosphere of industrial chic. A full bar selection soothes diners' thirsts, and full stomachs' calls for back up carry on the breeze from an outdoor patio.
Since 1987, Buffalo Bill's has been whisking boxes of hot wings to the doors of Denver. Before delivery, the wings are tossed in one of 15 sauces, which range from mild and sweet to absolutely fiery, depending on if the customer wants to decimate piles of napkins. Pleasant lemon-herb and sweet-and-sour sauces share space with three types of barbecue sauce and seven different levels of hot sauce. Buffalo Bill's also delivers Pudge Bros. pizza, custom-made or in specialty variations.
