Troy Guard is no stranger to the Denver food scene. Unlike the other places in the TAG Restaurant Group, however, TAG remains a fine-dining eatery with a menu that features dishes inspired by Colorado as well as Guard’s travels around the world. Dubbed continental social food, TAG’s dishes follow the seasons. On any given night, you may find such gems as the caramelized butter fish with lump crab and hon shimeji mushrooms; hand-pulled mozzarella with seasonal fruits; miso black cod with artichoke and yuzu kabayaki sauce; and an array of sushi rolls.
Located in LoDo, this hot spot requires a reservation if you want to hit it on the weekend or key dinner times. Also, while TAG proves upscale, you won’t find white linen decking out the tables. Instead, the Denver restaurant has a sleek, modern vibe with cherry-red leather booths, high-top seating and dark, intimate tables.
