Sushi Den + Izakaya Den - Brothers Yasu and Toshi Kizaki founded Sushi Den in 1984. Known for some of the freshest fish in Colorado and consistently, award-winning cuisine in Denver. They also host "Chef’s Table" which is meant for adult “Foodies” who are open to all types of dishes.

Quiero Aprepas - These guys started as a food truck at the Pearl Street farmer's market. Arepas are a corn based flatbread that dates back to the Timoto Cuica tribe in Venezuela. Gluten free, so always a favorite for me. They now have two locations - Platt Park and also in Avanti in the Highlands.
