THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Dish Bistro Restaurant Review: A quintessential neighborhood gathering spot, Dish Bistro draws an eclectic clientele of young hipsters, stroller-toting couples and globe-trotting comfort food aficionados who want more than just meatloaf and macaroni and cheese. Here, within the confines of a small dining room bubbling over the conversation, chef Chris Dougherty proffers a menu that encompasses everything from truffled shoestring French fries and mussels paired with roasted garlic bread pudding to the “lamby Joe”, a creative spin on the Sloppy Joe, combining shredded lamb shoulder with bacon, caramelized onions and blue cheese. Bleary-eyed regulars belly up to the adjacent Art Deco-styled corner bar for weekend brunch, which features $5 bottomless mimosas coupled with French toast, frittatas, eggs Benedict and scrambles. For dessert, try the sweet peach bread pudding or the adults-only vanilla porter float, made with a locally brewed beer and bobbing with vanilla ice cream. Service is friendly and engaging and the wine list, albeit small, peddles reasonable prices. If you’ve got a dog, you’ll appreciate that this is one of the few restaurants in Denver where well-behaved, leashed pooches are treated just as well as their humans.
