Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Enjoy inventive eats with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of contemporary American fare at Rialto Cafe.
Rialto Cafe houses a smorgasbord of contemporary American breakfast, lunch, and dinner bites depicted on its myriad menus, many of which are mottled with gluten-free and vegetarian options. Evening eats include a bacon-swathed slab of buffalo meatloaf simmering in gravy beside a cherubim-crafted cloud of mashed potatoes, corn, and red peppers ($14.99). Heaps of celery, carrots, peas, and potatoes swim in a sage-cream sauce cocooned by the chicken pot pie's flaky puff pastry ($14.99), and the blackened-salmon salad ($13.99) corrals a herd of assorted greens and feta into baron bellies.
Scarlet tables freckle two levels of multihued decorations ornamenting the electric-green walls, and patio dining, like skydiving with a mouthful of hamburger, allows visitors to nibble on dinner while enjoying fresh, high-altitude air.
Named for the Rialto Theater, a “picture theater” that once occupied the storefront next door, Rialto Cafe harkens back to the glamorous refinement of pre-multiplex Hollywood. Rialto Cafe is suitable for dinner before the theatre, meeting up for cocktails, a hearty power breakfast or quick lunch - fresh and convenient on Denver's 16th Street Mall. Visitors can complement their meals with sips of classic cocktails and wine culled from an expansive menu of glass and bottle selections. Gluten free and vegetarian menu items available.
