(Visited 06/2014): The Kitchen is located on the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver between Blake and Wynkoop. Metered parking available nearby.

There is a sidewalk patio on two sides of the brick building. The space inside is multi-level, with exposed brick and stone walls and white walls and ceilings.

As the name implies, The Kitchen focuses on food but has a pretty good beer list. There are just 4 beers on tap including Denver breweries like Elevation and other craft brewers like Lagunitas and Grand Teton. There are over 50 bottled selections from breweries like New Belgium, Green Flash, Trinity, Steam Works and Crooked Stave. "Cellar Selections" from the Bruery and Boulevard plus imports as well.

Service on the patio on a somewhat busy Saturday lunch was good. The server was efficient and knew the beers.

As for the food, we stopped in for the "Weekend Lunch", and my lamb burger was really good.

Overall this is not a beer destination per se, but is a solid place to visit for interesting food and some worthwhile beer options.

This is an outstanding, mostly seafood restaurant that also serves a nice selection of beer (wine and liquor too). Itís a classy place that is new and impeccably clean. They take craft beer seriously and I noticed that they were training the staff on the art of craft beer while I was there.

Visited October 11, 2013.

Stopped in with Anders37 on a pub crawl around downtown. This is a bit more upscale than we were dressed for wearing jeans and tshirts but they served us all the same. We sat at the bar and I ordered a glass of La Folie and he got some random tick (canít remember what it was but it wasnít very good). The beer list is small but decently well thought out. They have some nice bottles as well but I wasnít interested in paying for any of them. I canít comment on the food since I wasnít hungry at that point but it looked good. After reading the other ratings I might have to try out the food next time Iím in town.

This is a really good place for excellent food and beer. Very nice interior and the friendly staff now a lot about beer. As close to perfection you can get.

Went here with my wife one night. We sat out on the patio, which was nice as we got to people watch in a bustling Downtown Denver neighborhood. We ordered mussels, the lamb burger, and pigs ears - all were very delicious. Higher-end place where the food is pretty pricey, but the beer is all reasonable, Nice rotating tap list with a pretty large bottle list, as well, that they seem to add to quite often. I had a couple of Rayon Vertís which had about 6-months on them, but were reasonably priced at $6/bottle. We also took down some St. Bretta and Funkwerks offerings. The service was great and the food was fresh and delicious. I will definitely be back here many times.

Visited the Kitchen on Sunday 3rd June 2012. The place was pretty busy for dinner at 7pm. Upmarket restaurant, pricey but good food, however the beers are reasoanbly priced. 10 taps and a strong bottle list of 70 or so. Zero macro crap on tap or bottle. I had beers from Funkworks, Denver Beer Co and RR with my dinner. Quite a good range of European beers on the bottle list. The restauarant is bright and clean, brick walls and wooden floors. You can see the excellent food being prepared around one side of the restaurant. Our waitress knew her beer very well, service was first class. I believe the Denver kitchen only opened in Spring of 2012, There is a sister restaurant in Boulder which is the original of the pair. Excellent atmosphere, food and beer list.
