New American Restaurant

“This old mortuary is now a lively restaurant with a rooftop lounge & global small plates. Perhaps the most iconic restaurant in all of Denver, Linger is a must for first timers and veteran food-lovers alike! The menu is seasonal, constantly changing, and meant to be shared. Roof access is seasonal and worth it!”
