LENA
24 S. Broadway
Denver
720-550-7267

Lena (pronounced len-ya) brings new excitement to a very popular street. S. Broadway is a hot spot for dining, and Lena rates high on this list with great food from S. America. With selections from Mexico to Argentina, small plates of divine food come from the kitchen. The space is fabulous with a focal bar that covers one side of the inviting room, perfect for dining or gathering. Booths and tables are set throughout the other side with brick walls, wood, huge windows, and fabulous lighting. There is dining upstairs or a special banquet room as well on the lower level. It is casual, comfortable, and the place to be. Owner Jimmy Callahan with chef Toby charm all, adding to the scene. The food stars. Start with ceviche offered many ways: octopus, tender and delicious, tuna with orange, or shrimp delight. Another feature is a Latin American wood fire grill bringing super flavors to the blood sausage with grilled tomato, the short rib, Korean style, flat and yummy, bison skirt steak, rib eye, a pork chop, shrimp, chicken and even a vegetarian option. The “Claiente” list starts with a potato cake, plaintains, empanadas, and tacos. Bison short ribs, sea bass, and pork belly are the toppings for the homemade corn tortillas done there. Cuck meatballs, seabass, and an awesome chiliquiles with chicken bring more choices while chicken, mushrooms, and divine tamales with pork make decisions impossible. There are sides but do not miss the yucca cheese bread. Don’t miss tres leches, bunuelos, flan, and the ice cream sandwich for dessert. The cocktail, wine, and beer list complement the food perfectly. With great service, reasonable prices, and the most welcoming scene, Lena is on the list of places to go often. It rocks.
