Izakaya Den is Denver’s popular Japanese gastro pub serving global cuisine. The restaurant is located on South Pearl Street and is the second restaurant of the founder of Sushi Den. The menu is global cuisine style, serving traditional Japanese plates along with dishes infused with international flavors.
Our typical day at the restaurant is long, so before heading home, there is nothing better than winding down by visiting a great spot where we can grab a quick bite and a drink. Izakaya literally means “Sake House with small plates” and you will find Izakaya pubs all over Japan. It is a place where locals go to let loose after a hard day’s work. Like the traditional sake dens of Japan, Izakaya Den is a wonderful place to sit and contemplate your work day. For those who love Slow Food, Izakaya Den offers the chance to stretch out your dining experience, enjoy each bite, every carefully balanced flavor, every drop of liquid genius, disguised as sauce.
ORIGINAL FOOD CONCEPT
We live in a fabulous culinary time. What was once unobtainable or rare is now fairly universal. This has allowed our talented imaginative chefs to create menus with no boundaries. They can mix Italian ingredients with Mexican, French with Japanese. Different textures and flavors from all over the world come together to create new taste sensations. Izakaya Den embraces this philosophy by using ingredients from all types of cuisine and offers an ingenious menu. The menu is tapas style; the smaller portions allow you to order a few dishes and share, taking advantage of the exhilarating variety.
While much of the artwork and other stylistic details were imported from Japan, Izakaya Den is ultimately more sophisticated than your working stiffs’ pub. Its unique atmosphere is a cross between Japanese elegance and all those building materials that make a space upscale and modern. Stone flooring and walls, bamboo partitions, soft lighting and bold colors make the dining room umber chic.
