About Brazen

Established in September 2014, Brazen Neighborhood Eatery has been bringing quality food and hospitality to Denver’s West Highland neighborhood, with emphasis on sustainability, vegetables, and almost an entirely gluten-free menu.  Brazen bridges the gap between high-end downtown eateries and neighborhood fast casual food.  Brazen serves dinner Monday-Saturday and brunch on the weekends.

Christopher Sargent’s hopping West Highland hangout hosts nuanced New American cooking with an easygoing atmosphere that’s as comfortable as Sunday supper with your chums. The charismatic neighborhood gathering place showcases an open kitchen, chef’s counter, community table and bar and a truly laid-back vibe.

Proprietor

With experience in many notable restaurants across the country over the past twenty years, Chris has finally achieved his dream of owning and running his own restaurant. Like many before him, that dream started with humble beginnings at the young age of fifteen, working at a local restaurant in his hometown. Chris developed the skills and knowledge for the restaurant business that has fueled his career to date when he moved to Las Vegas and worked under Oliver Wharton. After this, Chris moved to Denver where he gained more experience at RIOJA and Acorn. Chris is grateful that his path has led him to open Brazen Neighborhood Eatery, and loves sharing his  hospitality with the West Highlands neighborhood.

My favorite side for Modern American foods. Most of the foods here are well-decorated and spicy. Some of their famous items are Deviled Eggs, Pork Belly, Smores, Tomato Braised Meatball, Roasted Beet Salad, Burrata, Chilaquiles, Octopus, Benedict and Mushroom Toast.

Brazen has never disappointed. It’s been a while since we visited but it won’t be so long till next time. The food is always spot on. We had the braised meatballs, gnocchi, hanger steak and roasted veggies and clam chowder. Everything was cooked perfectly. The bread pudding for desert was delicious. The wine list is very nice and the prices are fair. We had a bottle of the cab franc and a glass of the Poggio blend. Our server Casey was very attentive and did not overdo it.

Man, wish I could give Brazen a 6th star! My wife and I had our favorite Bistro for years until it closed. We have since been looking for something close...

This is one of the wife and I's favorite places to eat in the neighborhood. They change their menu often so I am not going to point out a lot, but the freaking beef sliders are OUT OF THIS WORLD! Very gluten free friendly too for the wife (P.S. sliders are not GF but they have plenty of other options). The cocktails are on point too - which I can't say about a lot of places.

Wonderful place to eat! Everything was delicious but of course it was a little pricey. However, it was definitely worth the money spent. It was my friends birthday and they gave us free champagne 🍾!

Brazen might be hard to fine for some people, but it’s worth the effort. Tucked away near the Elitch gazebo on W 38th Avenue it’s a small and lively spot to enjoy brunch, happy hour, or dinner , The food is superb and happy hour is a great value. Highly recommended is the brussels sprouts, the gnocchi, and the wine list. Shareable plates are generous and delicious.

A friend turned me on to this restaurant, and I'm so glad they did! It's an incredibly sustainable, healthy, and tasty place to eat.They grow a lot of their own herbs, and make most of their menu from scratch. I was most surprised when we ordered smores that the marshmallows and graham crackers were both made in house!The menu offers lots of options for those on different diets, and vegetarian and vegan options feel very thoughtful, unlike many other restaurants.The bathrooms even offer small hand towels, (to be used and placed in the hamper, which are then washed), instead of paper towels which I thought was very cool.The atmosphere is really nice too. The aesthetic is very welcoming and homey, with friendly staff!

This place is fantastic. It is a shared plate concept restaurant, so going with friends or family is a lot of fun. The food is outstanding. Service is excellent. Outdoor seating is available in a nice park like area. I don't believe there is a parking lot, but I found parking very close. Overall one of the best restaurants I've been to in a while.

What a terrific restaurant! The food was fantastic and the service top notch. I love the idea of getting small plates to share with the table. Everything was excellent and the brussel sprouts and hanger steak especially good.

Every minute of this was a great experience! We started with deviled eggs and burrata, super on point! I had a burger and traded the special sauce for wasabi aoli ❤️ and my friends had the scramble. Then there was the dog friendly patio and bottomless mimosas, how do you lose.i met Chris, the owner and am a huge fan!! Next time,I won't be starving and will ensure some pics.

A little pricey but a really great place to eat. The food was so great and honestly, well worth the cost. The best dishes we ordered were the chicken and waffles, biscuits and gravy, and chilaquile. Certainly worth the trip!
