7. Don’t Miss This Hidden Gem – Chocolate Lab
Generally a woman simply wants chocolate. And generally a woman simply wants a very good cocktail. At Chocolate Lab – they’ve each!
This small chocolate-centric restaurant and chocolate store not too long ago relocated to a cute little spot within the Hilltop Neighborhood. It’s identified for its craft cocktails – and sure – completely every little thing served there (drinks and meals) has chocolate in it. You’ve most likely by no means thought of chocolate and lasagna, nevertheless it’s unbelievable!
Their cocktails are concoctions you gained’t discover wherever else. Superbly balanced and boozy – half of the enjoyable is watching the mixologist make them! How a couple of S’moretini (marshmallow vodka, chocolate, espresso, cream, and toasted marshmallow), or a Flaming Queen (Scotch, Rye, maple, blackberry, vermouth, and citrus)?
They name it a lab as a result of it does really feel like an enormous chocolate science experiment. I by no means favored chemistry at school, however had I been in a position to experiment with chocolate in chemistry – I’m fairly certain I might have gone into science as a profession! The décor is ‘lab-like’; they use beakers and numerous tubes that I barely keep in mind from my highschool chemistry class to combine drinks. Their meals is kind of experimental in nature. Tortellini with darkish chocolate shavings that carry out the flavour, or bourbon chocolate BBQ sauce pulled pork. And don’t even get me began on the dessert menu – it’s my ‘go-to’ place in Denver for dessert.
You possibly can go have an extremely distinctive craft cocktail, dinner, decadent chocolate dessert, AND take residence hand-made truffles from the Chocolate Lab – undoubtedly a novel cease in Denver!
