Mizuna Restaurant Denver was chef/owner Frank Bonanno's first restaurant. Impeccably serviced by a thoroughly professional floor staff.
Mizuna Restaurant is a comfortable neighborhood spot that draws crowds (and these days, cooks) from across the country, all coming to taste the first, best expression of Bonanno's ingredient obsessions, singular talent and hard work. From eternal classics like the lobster mac-and-cheese to variation after variation on foie gras, duck and salmon to cream-filled beignets, the plates coming out of Mizuna's kitchen never fail to satisfy.
With its soft-yellow walls, artwork and well-placed tables, Mizuna Restaurant feels spacious and comfortable. The seasonal menu changes monthly and features unusual dishes such as green-tea poached sea bass. Even the macaroni and cheese includes juicy chunks of lobster smothered in creamy mascarpone sauce. Other entrees include grilled beef tenderloin and rack of Colorado lamb. For dessert, there's carrot and raisin griddle cakes topped with rum ice cream and syrup.
