Westword's Description

Small and weird and uncommon and devilishly crowded at its peak is not a standard recipe for wild restaurant success. But in Limon's warm storefront space, owner/chef Alex Gurevich has singlehandedly sold Denver on authentic Novoandino cuisine -- a combination of modern Peruvian flavors and classical French technique that's complex, comforting and delicious all at the same time. And Limon's success hasn't been hampered by its south-of-the-border-cool cocktail list, either.

Tips from foursquare

  • Vato G. on 02/21/11

    Under new management obviously because all the food and drinks are kick ass authentic and delicious. Review to follow on www.vatogourmet.com and it will be a positive one. This place is amazing now!

  • Shannon V. on 10/15/10

    Try the green lip mussels and yucca and plantain chips. Yum!

  • Will P. on 03/16/10

    P17 was lackluster so I checked this place out.

  • Brian S. on 02/18/10

    The beef and the pork dishes here are better than the seafood dishes.

  • Lydia M. on 10/02/13

    Small plates are small.
