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!

Located in the Westin Denver Downtown Hotel (formerly the Westin Tabor Center) overlooking the Rocky Mountains, The Denver Palm has proved that its "Mile-High" location has maintained the same quality in food and service that the original Palm set the standard for so many years ago.

Zengo is a sophisticated blend of Latin-Asian styles and flavors. Chef Richard Sandoval, whose accolades include Bon Appétit Restaurateur of the Year and Mexico’s Toque d’Oro, artfully spins Latin-Asian ingredients into colorful, beautifully balanced dishes designed for sharing. The beverage menu features innovative, hand-muddled cocktails as well as an extensive selection of wines, sakes and tequilas. The vibrant décor fuses traditional and contemporary tastes, the perfect setting to sample Zengo’s acclaimed cuisine. For a relaxed yet upbeat afternoon, sip our signature cocktails on our outdoor patio. <br /><br /><br /><br />“Zengo is by far the best restaurant in Denver, maybe even the country.” <br /><br />The Denver Post <br /><br /><br /><br />“…the coolest looking eatery in the west, it’s certainly unlike any other restaurant in Denver” <br />America’s Top Restaurants, Zagat <br /><br /><br /><br />“Hot List Restaurants” Conde Nast Traveler

"Zengo has a great vibe to it and an A+ location on Little Raven. 5 minute walk across the bridge to Union Station as well. Their food is excellent, and the menu varied - you can go tapas or entrees - or both. We went tapas and tasted alot of different textures, flavors, etc. Definitely a winner."

"You know the drill - it's Benihana - but you don't have to go there for dinner and overeat. Lunch is good, portions are cut down, there are some non-hibachi items and generally speaking it's pretty darn good. Also it's always fun at Benihana, right?"

"Certainly not gourmet or excellent but good, fun place with varied menu - everything from high end steaks to bar food. If you're in that neighborhood it's a good choice."

"Ambli is located in a C- strip center at Holly and Leetsdale. Once you get past that, however, you enter into a well designed hip/casual space which is fun and inviting. Cool bar, high top tables are available, plus regular tables. The menu is very eclectic and varied and features both tapas and standard entrees, all of which are quite good. Our waiter didn't get that some of us were getting tapas and others were getting entrees so he messed up the order and those of us who got tapas as our meal were served something like 20 minutes before the entrees. Then he threw the kitchen under the bus, which isn't cool, but it didn't detract too much from our evening. Very good spot and good for large parties as well."

Found kitchen and social house is all about local. The 2013 Michelin Bib Gourmand-rated gathering spot is known for its flavorful and eclectic fare. The food is perfectly matched with the spirited atmosphere imagined by Proprietor Amy Morton, inspired by Bohemian Paris in the 1920s and icons of the Beat Generation. Chef Nicole Pederson's seasonal, rustic new American cooking quickly became the talk of the town since opening in November of 2012 and her flavorful plates continue to wow guests. The lauded restaurant celebrates the nature of discovery in every aspect of the restaurant, from using found objects in the décor to sourcing products from lesser-known local purveyors. Found’s flexitarian menu reflects the new American palate and its shared plates style accommodates vegans, meat lovers, and everyone in between.
