American Elm

When restaurant professional Bob Reiter moved to Denver from New York two years ago, he set out to recreate the kind of cool, comfortable bistro that he frequented in Brooklyn’s ultra-hip Williamsburg neighborhood. Opening American Elm in West Highlands this past August, which is named for the glorious specimen that shades the restaurant’s patio, he recruited Executive Chef Brent Turipseede, formerly executive chef at Guard and Grace, to craft a menu of delicious but approachable fare that includes bar staples like oysters, deviled eggs, and chicken wings, all elevated with unexpected flourishes. The ‘unexpected flourish’ mentality applies to large plate offerings as well, like scallops seared in a roast tomato butter sauce and steak frites cooked in bone marrow butter. All this good cooking has earned American Elm a place on Eater’s list of “The 15 Hottest Restaurants in Denver, November 2019.”
