Best Steakhouse In Denver

March 29, 2023

We could talk about A5's thoughtful sourcing of some seriously high-quality beef that's always cooked just right. Or about the fact that you don't even have to order steak at all to have an indulgent, memorable meal here, with options like oysters, the beef tartare katsu sandwich and the French dip (which is available only at the bar). But what we really love about this restaurant, which joined the scene in 2021, is that it's downright fun, bringing fresh energy to the classic steakhouse concept that was once the darling of the Denver dining scene.

When Tony P’s Bar and Pizzeria moved from its original LoHi location to a smaller store at 3000 Zuni St., this meant that not only would the neighborhood retain a culinary staple, but earn a new contributor to the food scene. Kumoya is the new tenant scheduled to arrive at 2400 W. 32nd Ave. — a Japanese restaurant led by noted native Denver chef Corey Baker and incubated by Juan Padró’s Culinary Creative restaurant group. The partners will combine their years of travel and food industry experience to “blend Japanese hospitality with a very Denver vibe,” Baker told What Now Denver.
