My wife and I recently had the pleasure of enjoying a wonderful Sunday brunch at Duo Restaurant with friends from out of town. Duo Restaurant isn’t new to the Highlands in Denver – this restaurant serving seasonal American cuisine has been around since 2006. But, it’s still gotta be one of the best brunches around!
Every year since its opening, Duo has earned some sort of accolade, ranging from “Best Customer Service” to “Top 25 Restaurants in Denver”. They feature a unique menu that changes with the seasons – it’s a true farm to table restaurant that supports local organic growers. And this is just awesome: according to their website, Duo uses all of its waste vegetable oil to power a Volkswagen diesel! How cool is that?
The restaurant has a fun and bustling atmosphere where conversation can be enjoyed at a normal volume. The large, open dining area has a modern shabby-chic feel to it. Most importantly, the food is amazing! I enjoyed a cider glazed pork benedict (poached hard of-course) with my own personal-sized french press featuring Denver’s own Novo coffee. They definitely stay true to their passion of supporting local businesses.
If you haven’t been to Duo, get there. And to make things easier, make a reservation – they accept them!
