First Look: Kachina Southwest Grill (Denver)

The dairy block of Denver has a new resident and they’re bringing the heat. Kachina Southwest Grill offers a detailed list of craft cocktails and food inspired by the four corners.

With proteins like bison and quail on the menu, it’s easy to get stuck on what to order, but luckily Kachina provides some of the most knowledgeable servers. You're probably better off letting them bring you their favorites (like I did).

Some of the fan favorites: Bison Bone Marrow, Chipotle Shrimp + Waffle, Dive Scallops and Cowgirl Ribeye.

It will be difficult, but save room for dessert. Kachina has one of the best pastry chefs in the city creating their sweet treats and they’re not to be missed. I sampled their beignets:  filled with chocolate, dip them in the goat’s milk caramel sauce (zomg) and add some of the ancho chili spiked chocolate crumble for the biggest explosion of flavor you will ever experience.

Want more? I hear a rumor the brunch menu offers even more of the pastry chef creations. 10/10 would recommend Kachina Southwest Grill for anyone looking for a date night spot, a place to grab a great happy hour or taking a client out for a meal. Seriously delicious dishes pumping out of that kitchen.
