- Lucky Pie – Eventhough the pizzeria and taphouse has recently opened a second location in LoDo, we’ll waive our “no chain restaurants” policy to hail owner Brendan McManus’ take on Neapolitan-style pizza—fragrant and tender with a crispy char. This avowed carnivore can’t resist the Winter Wild Mushroom. Great beer menu, and they manage to be both kid-friendly and serve delicious roasted vegetables. 637 Front St. 303-666-5743. www.luckypiepizza.com
- Lulu’s BBQ – Texas-style, shredded and saucy, and the beef brisket is top-shelf. I’m usually satisfied with an order of dry-rubbed smoked wings and any of the cold beers on tap, but no mere mortal can resist the Friday night dinner special, smoked Prime rib. 701 B Main Street. 720-583-1789. www.lulus-bbq.com
- The Empire Lounge & Restaurant – A destination for superior libations and all-American bar food. My favorite dish is the crispy calamari salad, an ample portion of seafood sharing a mélange of greens and miso balsamic dressing on a (wait for it) squid-pro-quo basis. 816 Main Street. 303-665-2521. www.theempirerestaurant.com
