Lunch: The ambiance is industrial chic with exposed bricks and pipes; the menu is contemporary creative with comfort-food overtones. Acorn is one of the anchoring businesses at The Source, the warehouse-turned-retail-and-dining-outlet in RiNo, the River North arts district that has garnered national attention. RiNo is not quite "there" yet, but it's well on its way, and Acorn is perfectly situated to become a favorite for neighborhood residents and Denverites as a whole. Lunch plates include vegetarian selections such as kale and apple salad and an eggplant parmesan sandwich, and heartier options from a grilled beef and farro salad to wood-fired salmon. Acorn is proof that almost anything can have a fried egg added to it, including shrimp and grits, the oak-grilled pork belly BLT and even the oak-grilled double cheeseburger (cardiologists, cover your eyes). Open for dinner only on Sundays.
