Get the: Dirty Chai (chai with espresso)
With ties to the local Greek Orthodox church and doubling as a small peddler of classic religion, history and philosophy books, this opulent outfit (think leather couches) serves excellent Colorado Coffee Merchants-sourced drinks and a killer red bell pepper hummus off a tight food menu.
Best Of 2015: Neighborhood Restaurant: West
Whether you're there for Saturday or Sunday brunch with the build-your-own Bloody Mary bar, or the daily Asian fusion lunch and dinner menu, it's easy to taste why 503W is the west side favorite. Wasabi, Sriracha, sweet Thai sauce, kimchi, ginger and more all get featured in the dishes. Ridiculously creative cocktails, an awesome craft beer menu and an open kitchen all give you the sense that you're hanging with friends while they fill your table. — Carrie Simison
