After a stint in the Highlands, the Squeaky Bean relocated to LoDo in 2012, where it remains one of the most creative eateries in Denver. In a space bedecked with an electric Bingo board (it is in use during the standout Sunday brunch), the restaurant ihas a fun atmosphere, and the kitchen loves to break rules. Evidence abounds on the menu, from starters like twice-fried chicken wings and a red and yellow beet salad to the innovative entrees like pork-lemongrass sausage and local lamb shank with peas, lentils, and mint yogurt. Then comes time for an artful dessert—I recommend the delectable chocolate pot au crème.
