The Way Back

Denver was a sadder place after this popular eatery closed for six months for a move and remodeling. Well, good news! The Way Back is back in business, better than ever, in its new digs on Tennyson Street in Berkeley. The commodious space previously housed Patrick Carroll’s and then Paddy the Yank, but do not fear—the days of Irish pub fare are over. Instead, you will find what Zagat describes as, “A hot spot known for seasonal, sustainable New American cuisine and expert cocktails.” Locally sourced meats become dishes like pork chop with black-eyed peas, greens, peanuts, and preserved lemon and barbecue lamb neck with radicchio and celery slaw. Chef Dylan Rigolini also does wonders with vegetables, from green pea fritters with cilantro, jalapeño, and yogurt to carrots and purple snow peas with mint and matcha tea vinaigrette, inspiring 5280 restaurant critic John Lavelle to comment "I wish I lived closer to it".
