Rooftop bars allow diners to nosh as they marvel at panoramic views without the hassle of balancing sloshing bowls of chowder while strapped to a rocket pack. Suppress appetites at high altitudes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of wood-fired comfort fare and non-alcoholic drinks at Ignite Denver.
Ignite Denver's chefs roast seasonal, locally sourced ingredients in a wood-burning oven to create a menu of gastro pub–inspired comfort fare. Guests can rev up their appetites and geometry knowledge by divvying a shareable plate of savory turnovers that envelop roast chicken or braised beef and arrive with a rainbow of dipping sauces ($6.99). Open flames smoldering inside a 600-degree wood oven caress a contemporary take on chicken pot pie ($11.99), which showcases a potion of fire-roasted corn and poblanos, fresh sage, and leeks nestled in an herb-crusted puff-pastry cauldron.
The rustica pizza ($11.99) challenges artichoke hearts, pine nuts, and heirloom grape tomatoes to trudge through house-made mozzarella, and the grilled pork dinner plate ($13.99) accessorizes molasses-rubbed Marble Farms' white tenderloin with cidered gravy and a broccoli and cheddar potato cake. After tackling the Ignite! burger's bacon-and-onion bourbon jam ($8.99), Groupon-holders can sip non-alcoholic libations among the dining room's exposed-brick walls or venture to the al fresco rooftop bar for unobstructed views of exposed-brick clouds.
