Chef Matt Selby didn’t set out to operate a cafeteria-cum-pantry for the RiverClay condominiums rising five stories above Corner House in Jefferson Park. But since he and his two partners unveiled this 1,250-square-foot eatery in January 2013, that’s precisely what it’s become. “People would come down in their pajamas,” marvels Selby. The airy, wide-windowed restaurant has become a place for residents to grab a bite after a trip to the fitness room, to put down one last drink before heading upstairs for the night, even to bum oregano when they’re making pasta. But Corner House isn’t a cafeteria, of course. Selby spent fifteen years with Vesta Dipping Grill, Steuben’s and Ace, and the Colorado-born, self-described “ingredient dork” has higher aspirations for the first kitchen he can call his own: Corner House is designed as a neighborhood bistro that considers the entire city its neighborhood, one where you can craft a meal from small and (slightly) larger plates, including PEI mussels, chili-braised short ribs, fruit-spiked avocado salad, grilled polenta and a stunning chocolate bread pudding.
Tips from foursquare
Mussels are amazing...
I was excited to try out the restaurant, but I was disappointed when my food came. It was a tiny portion for too much money. Next time I'm in the area I'll go to to Sassafras or La Loma.
Must try the crazy inventive and fun Cereal Milk Punch cocktail. Cinnamon Toast Cunch, milk, and booze. Why has this not existed before?
Great addition to the Jefferson Park neighborhood with a well-edited menu emphasizing small plates with big flavors. As for the wine list, it's short but smart: six whites and seven reds.
Poke is the best I've had in Colorado!
