MODERN CUISINE: We serve contemporary European cuisine
cooked with classic and innovative techniques.
Executive Chef Patrik Landberg's extensive culinary
credentials makes Charcoal Restaurant a fine dining experience of
the highest caliber. The kitchen only uses high-quality ingredients
prepared in a simple and clear presentation style. Our goal is to
let the primary ingredient be the star, so we do not mask it with
too much sauce or garnish. Our culinary creations are carefully
prepared to be as flavorful and healthy as possible. The menu
allows you to choose from small bites, appetizers and full-size
TECHNIQUES: We use a custom-designed "Bincho"
grill. Bincho cooking originated near the 8th century and, while
used throughout Asia, is often identified with Japan. Producing
Bincho charcoal is time-consuming and involves multiple refining
steps of burning the wood over a kiln until it reaches temperatures
of 2,400 degrees and undergoes several days of curing. The result
is charcoal that burns at an extremely high temperature and is
virtually smokeless in comparison to other charcoal. We only use
charcoal that comes from sustainable forests and contains no
fillers or volatile substances - just pure hardwood. The high
temperature ensures that food is cooked more quickly. Meat is
crispy on the outside, yet tender on the inside. Vegetables retain
their flavor. Many of our signature dishes are prepared on the
SERVICE: Our staff, led by Front of the House
Manager, Christopher Keller, are not pretentious nor overly formal.
They are trained to help you relax and enjoy your dining experience
while providing informed service. Our team takes pride in treating
all customers with warmth and respect.
The pretentiousness and often stratospheric price makes wine,
for many, a special occasion. At Charcoal Restaurant, we make great
wines more accessible. you can order a flight, half pour, full pour
or bottle at affordable prices. We choose our wine, not just on
taste, but also on what offers great customer value. Our
custom-designed Napa wine dispenser allows you to sample many wines
by the glass.
ATMOSPHERE: Charcoal Restaurant is refined, yet
comfortable. A mixture of old and new. Relax in the patio, lounge,
bar, dining room or exhibition grill. And for a truly exquisite
experience, reserve our private dining room. For an interactive
experience, sit at our chef's
table where you can enjoy the
culinary expertise of Chef Landberg and his team. Our decor
includes antique chandeliers from South America. We pay attention
to the details: we have changing tables in the bathrooms and purse
hooks throughout the restaurant. The sound system varies the
acoustic levels throughout the restaurant to ensure that you can
hear the music - and your conversation.
We are proud to be a neighborhood favorite in the
Golden Triangle near downtown Denver, Colorado.
