Denver Neighborhoods and Food

Will be in Denver in mid-December with family (all adults)... what neighborhoods should we be looking at for an Airbnb rental or hotel, and which restaurants, coffee spots and markets, etc., do you recommend? Any and all tips welcome!

In Lodo (lower downtown) for fine dining ChoLon is one of the best. Casual Mexican would be Rio Grande where they put a limit on the margs. In the Highlands Bar Dough for pizza, Highland Tap & Burger for pub food, Uncle for ramen. Postino for great sandwiches and the best daytime happy hour. Plus there are numerous craft beer breweries that host local food trucks. Enjoy your time. Great eating in Denver for sure.

It really depends what type of food is your jam (and how hipster you are!)

LoHi (Lower Highlands) is, arguably, the hottest neighborhood and has a plethora of food options. There's also RiNo (River North) with ample breweries, a cidery https://stemciders.com/, and (again) restaurants galore. I'd suggest Biju's Little Curry Shop. http://www.littlecurryshop.com/
Linger http://lingerdenver.com/ has a great (if slightly creepy-awesome) history, great views, and good food - the masala dosa is a MUST! The owner has a few different restaurants - all with fun stories.

One of my favorite coffee shops is in the Uptown neighborhood, Weathervane. They make their own syrups and have some great food options as well. http://www.weathervanecafe.com/

If breweries are your thing, we have plenty! Most of them have food trucks in the afternoon/evening.
