Euclid Hall

The upstairs seating area

Nestled on the edge of Larimer Square, this recent edition to the Denver foodscape offers an eclectic set of tapas styled pub foods that are far from your average pub fare.  With options like Bone Marrow, Blood Sausage and fried pigs ears, even a more adventurous eater might have to take a second look at some of the menu options.  Have no fear though; every item on the menu is exceedingly delicious.

In keeping with tapas tradition, our table ordered a handful of plates that everyone at the table could share.  First delivered were . . . → Read More: Euclid Hall
