Before the advent of refined contemporary cooking, the pinnacle of American cuisine was hamburgers wrapped in American flag bandanas and Spam that submitted ceaseless votes on televised dance competitions. Celebrate the tasty renaissance with today's Groupon for contemporary American fare from Hodsons Bar & Grill in Centennial. Choose between these two options:
Whether you sink into one of Hodsons' luxurious booths or belly up to the sleek, square bar, the air is perfumed with the aroma of roasted chicken and tender prime rib slow-cooking on the bar's rotisserie. Dinner appetizers such as the triplet of kobe beef sliders ($11) topped with cheddar cheese, pickle chips, and ground mustard aioli or the collection of Prince Edward Island mussels ($13) dredged from a pan-induced white wine and butter ocean paves throat-roads for greater entrées. The boneless beef short rib ($19) or the rotisserie half chicken ($15) have both been slowly rotated at a pace considered painstaking for even the most careful game of pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey—and both are served with Yukon gold mashed potatoes and vegetables. Any meal can find a leggy tango partner amid a high-quality wine list or Hodsons' tap-controlled waterfalls of local micro-brews.
Roasted meats and upscale contemporary cuisine make their appearance at Hodsons during lunch as well, but manifest themselves in efficient soup and salad combos ($10), as well as a burger and sandwich spread. Use your teeth to test the structural integrity of a prime dip sandwich ($15) or a white cheddar grill ($9) of melted cheese, granny smith apples, and bacon on Hawaiian bread.
Hodsons Bar & Grill
As people walk past the spacious outdoor patio into Hodsons Bar & Grill, they might spy diners devouring brick-oven pizza, and steaks beneath white canvas umbrellas or sipping brews around the fire pit. Inside, diners perch on leather chairs and slide into booths beneath an abstract glass chandelier that resembles a flaming sun. The private dining room seats guests beside a floor-to-ceiling wine rack built into the wall, and the glass doors, marked by the face imprints of those who weren’t invited in, can be shut for total privacy.
The upscale, contemporary decor reflects Hodsons’ upscale, contemporary American lunch and dinner dishes, such as chicken buerre blanc in a caramelized apple champagne sauce and a bone-in pork chop bathed in a dijon rosemary honey glaze. Burgers hoist Colorado Angus beef and black bean patties, almond-crusted salmon await the grill’s flame licks, and three-cheese fondue teems with chunks of applewood bacon with spinach and hand-cut tortilla chips.
