A New RiNo Bistro Pays Homage to New York’s Greenwich Village

Eating your veggies just got a lot more fun, thanks to the arrival of The Greenwich in downtown Denver. Delores Tronco, a Colorado native and former co-owner of Work & Class, says she opened the RiNo bistro as a love letter to New York’s Greenwich Village, where she had moved and opened a restaurant in 2020, only to have it shut down after 96 days.

That was New York’s loss but our gain, as Tronco made her way back to the Mile High City in 2021 to open her new venture with executive chef Justin Freeman, formerly of Manhattan’s Nobu and Upland. The vegetable-forward, seasonally rotating menu offers larger plates for sharing family-style, and the restaurant vibe is decidedly hip. “We have a certain big-city, dynamic energy,” says Tronco. “The music playlist, the NYC photography and artwork, the lighting and the deep sense of hospitality. We have created a sense of place.” Don’t miss the roasted mushroom pie, warm French lentils, roasted carrots, smoked cabbage and lemon chicken.
