Restaurant Description

The vision for Limón, Denver's eclectic Peruvian lounge, began during Chef Alex Gurevich's trips to the South American country. Continually in awe of and impressed by the richness of the culture and cuisine, he envisioned a place in Denver where people could gather to experience the warmth and liveliness of Peru. Limón's space was built with this concept in mind.

It is rustic and inviting, comfortable and chic. Burgundy walls, exposed brick, wide plank wood floors and antique casks set an undeniably warm tone. The restaurant, bar/lounge, and patio offer distinctly different settings where guests can enjoy the food, the ambience and the energy that represent the Peruvian lifestyle.

Limón is located in the revitalized uptown district of Denver and serves traditional Peruvian cuisine. Chef Alex Gurevich presents novoandino cuisine, a method of cooking that blends various styles of preparation but uses fresh, authentic ingredients. The result is inspired food and drink that reflect the best of this popular South American fare.

The mixturas, or appetizers, give guests their first taste of the exceptional flavors of Peru while the Fondos (main plates) bring the indigenous cuisine front and center. Cocktails are also influenced by the novandino style with infused rums serving as the inspiration for the unique blends of the Mojito de Pina and the Ron-Yki-On. The wine list and beer choices also remain true to Limon's region of influence, offering labels from vineyards and breweries throughout South and Central America.

From top to bottom, food to drink, bar to patio, Limón showcases the culture that first captured Chef Gurevich during his Peruvian travels.

 The best part is going inside and enjoying a wonderful meal. The worst part is finding a place to park.

Ted's Montana Grill  5  out of 5 stars

 This place has become my Denver version of the old Berghoff in Chicago, only much more intimate. It's really good, and an excellent stop when you're visiting Lodo for any Denver event, or just a great evening out on Denver's beautiful summer evenings ...
