There’s a new icon in Larimer Square with a modern twist on comfort food…
Tom’s Urban 24 opened last fall, and has something new to offer the Denver foodie crowd.
Not only do they have a menu that is to die for (I can’t stop thining about it), but also they are open 24/7. What’s better than that? A delicious grub, drink and snack at any hour of the day or night? Yes please.
To further enlighten you with this place’s awesomeness, this Tom guy is the mastermind and founder behind Smashburger and has the most crazy and exciting background in food science, marketing and branding for various national fast food chains. I’m not kidding when I say he had something to do with Stuffed Crust Pizza and McGriddle. According to the Westword, he’s an R&D wonderboy.
He sounds like a pretty terrific and inspirational guy.
So, when I was home for Christmas, Kristen and I went there for a revisited-comfort-food dinner date.
After a long debate over all of the choices and what to get for dinner (and of course after the Blue Cheese and Bacon Deviled Eggs as an appetizer), we settled for one of their Urban pizzas and the Shrimp Mac ‘n Cheese.
If you want to also drool over their menu, you can check it out here. I am craving most things on the menu as I type this. There is such a large variety of food and flavors, all Colorado sourced! Tom’s works with 30 different Colorado food companies and produce farmers to offer their ever so delicious “comfort food with a modern twist”.
We both paired with a pint. K went with the Hoegaarden that they had on tap, and I went with the local Hoss Rye Lager from Great Divide Brewery.
I’m dreaming of this place and wish so much somewhere with such delicious grub and fabulously retro and urban atmosphere could open in Paris. A great place to enjoy delicious food.
If you happen to go to Denver, check it out for yourself. Your jaw will drop.
