Rioja receives the Best in Denver Colorado Top 50 Restaurants (Best of the Best)
From David Herz – Reviewer
Riojas is one of those joints that is a cut above. It has a James Beard award, great food, great cocktails and great ambiance. Jennifer Jasinski is the owner and she has quite a following in Denver and some other great joints too: Bistro Vendome, Euclid Hall and Stoic & Genuine. Their artichoke tortellini with artichoke mousse, white truffle brodo, queso de mano and chervil won a James Beard award and was amazing although my pic of it sucked so it is not below. But some tasty cheese, desert and cocktails is. Great great spot.
