Mexican: This gem in the Berkeley neighborhood serves fresh food in an intimate setting accommodating. Gloria Nunez, a native of Mexico City, and her grandson, David Lopez, opened El Chingon in this charming old house on Tennyson Street in December 2013. The menu offers traditional dishes--tacos, tostadas, burritos--along with less expected options such as duck and bison. There's also fresh fish and an excellent selection of salads and soups. Behind the bar, cocktails are meticulously crafted. While many feature traditional tequila and fresh-squeezed citrus, there are surprises. The La Vida Pura, for example, is elevated by house-made fig syrup and egg white, while the Envidia is a heady mix that includes bourbon, Frangelico, and two bitters: black walnut and Aztec chocolate. The chilaquiles on Saturday's brunch menu may be Denver's best, though the DJ music, while good, makes conversation challenging. In warm weather, the back patio is the place to be.

Best for Mexican Because: It's the whole package: Excellent food, creative cocktails and a charming setting (the chandelier, dark wood accents and chihuahua painting make the space).
