Lower48 is a Contemporary American restaurant located in the heart of downtown Denver on the corner of 21st street and Lawrence. Our menu changes daily and we are inspired by regional ingredients and culinary traditions. We embrace natural preserving techniques, artisan breads, heritage breeds, heirloom vegetables, and house-made pastas.

"Lower48 is fun, different, interesting.
What to expect: 3- course dinner. Starting with a variety of small bites - individual (and I mean one bite, maybe two), then you can get your own small-medium plate for an entree OR share one of those and then share one of TWO larger, entrees. The night we went the larger choice was chicken or a rib eye - 2 choices only and too big for one person, just right for two people.
What we liked: "small bites" to start. Artistic, nice variety, fun, and all we tried were very good. We each ordered a small/med plate (these were just ok, not great) and then shared the chicken. Chicken was really good - grits not so much.
What could improve: Green salad option would be nice. Third entree choice.
Try it!

The name Hapa is derived from the Hawaiian term that describes a harmonious blend of Asian and American cultures. Like our name, our food reflects this dynamic combination. The menu is based on traditional Japanese cooking fundamentals which are then amplified, muted, or mixed with influences from many different sytles of cooking until they are something completely new: they're Hapa. We have stretched the boundaries of creativity to develop dishes that defy all the rules while holding true to our roots. We hope you will find our menu innovative, uninhibited, and distinctly fun!

"Long time Vail residents that have our favorite restaurants….somehow we just never made it to La Tour.
What we really enjoyed: very nice ambience, friendly and knowledgable staff, great location, everything on the menu sounded wonderful - hard to decide what to order. Presentation was beautiful. Desserts and cheese plate were incredible!
What could have been better: lobster bisque (maybe my bad - thought it was going to be a more traditional lobster bisque, this one had a stronger fishy taste than a lobster taste), dover sole presentation was very nice and while it was good, it was a little bland.
Overall - worth trying again, and we will. Will ask more questions before ordering next time.
Great spot.
