I happened upon this new restaurant while walking my dog – after taking him to the Dog Park at Riverfront Park, he was covered in mud, but I had to see the new digs so I tied him up for a few minutes while I perused the Eatery.
Brider opened up this month at 1644 Platte Street. I’m so pleased to see an affordable, casual place to dine at or take out that has beautiful, simple and healthy food. Chef Steve Redzikowski of Acorn and Oak at Fourteenth helped launch this super fabulous eatery.
They serve fresh squeezed and daily pressed juice along with the renowned Boxcar coffee – they have a coffee bar – looks very European.
Very friendly staff. They specialize in Rotisserie Chicken, Porchetta and Leg of Lamb. (yummy!!). And I’ve heard the Hearth fired oak meatballs are out of this world. I had the Rotisserie Roasted Chicken Tortilla Soup with avocado, tomato, crunchy tortilla strips and lime. Delicious.
Also, this building, designed with raw steel and glass, is stunning!!! It’s called the Nichols building (Randy Nichols, Developer) and has top tech companies leasing out the space a-la Galvanize concept.
Really, nowadays, anytime you go out for dinner, it’s easily $150-$200 for two or three. Denver’s changed in that way. I work all the time, so at 6:00 or so, I’m looking for a healthy place to pick up a to-go dinner and enough to bring lunch to work the next day.
This place is perfect…except for parking…always a hassle on Platte. I also love, love the Dog Store on Platte – Zen Pet Dog Boutique. Very personable sales people there. Always a delight to stop in there.
