For[a]ged opened in 2019 with a menu that ranges from an impressive raw bar to steaks, salmon and vegetarian entrees. The name is a play on the words foraged, related to the freshest of natural ingredients, and forged, a nod to the chef's collection of knives, including some he made himself, displayed on the walls and used in the kitchens. Chef Duy Pham and his son are culinary artists, each nigiri and hand roll as much artistic presentation as delectable bite. For an incomparable experience, book Omakase, translation, "I leave it to you," a photo-worthy, multi-course chef's table for up to eight offered at the raw bar where you can interact with the chefs. A romantic choice: the green velvet booths upstairs. Wherever you sit, ask what fresh ingredient isn't on the menu as fish from all over the world arrive fresh daily but aren't always listed.
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: Culinary artistry by For[a]ge chefs showcases authentic Japanese fare in downtown Denver. As in Japan, exquisite presentation is integral to the experience here.
- Best for Romantic Dining Because: For[a]ged elevates nigiri, sashimi and hand rolls in Denver, but also adds steak and pork belly to the menu, providing something for every diner.
