This Mother’s Day, treat the mama in your life to a day in Denver that she won’t soon forget. We are loving these six Denver brunch spots, from Cherry Creek to the Highlands, serving up everything from bottomless mimosas to mouth-watering french toast and even croque madames.
Residing in the sleek and sophisticated hotel HALCYON where the spirit of the Colorado lifestyle is captured, is the newly-opened restaurant Local Jones in Denver’s blossoming neighborhood of Cherry Creek. The warm and welcoming atmosphere of the dining area includes an outdoor greenhouse serving brunch, dinner, and their Jonesin’ to-go options. Helmed by Chef Josh Sutcliff from Dallas, the menu is beaming with fresh and seasonal Rocky Mountain staples, like Colorado green chili & cheese enchiladas, house-made pasta, and organic salmon that are best followed by a sweet treat of sticky toffee cake. They also have an impressive curated wine list and specialty cocktails served up by their skilled bartenders.
After opening in July 2020, they have secured themselves as a neighborhood staple enjoyed by visitors and locals looking to connect in a socially distanced space. They are also becoming known for their excellent staff and service that is both relaxed and attentive and their brightly lit interior that feels inviting and comfortable for either breakfast or brunch with friends or an elevated dinner with a date. Local Jones participates in Denver Restaurant Week annually and is working on a weekend dinner series for the fall season. Guests of the hotel may like to know that the elegant rooftop pool offers a weekly live music series in the summer.
This Mother’s Day, moms can enjoy an amuse bouche offered to every “mother” that dines there as well as half-price bottles of Nicolas Feuillatte Rosé Champagne. They will also leave with a sweet treat to-go (think petit fours and blondies) and a recipe card from Chef Sutcliff, plus a 20% off discount for their next visit to HALCYON.
