The Hornet - the perfect neighborhood restaurant
I live in the neighborhood and go to the Hornet a couple of times a month. I feel that it has more of a restaurant feel, as opposed to bar feel, although they do draw quite the happy hour crowd with their drink specials and chic, yet relaxed atmosphere. This is a place that you can roll into at 10am on a weekend morning wearing your sweats for a yummy brunch & awesome make it yourself bloody mary bar (which despite the last reviewers comments, it's not free, but is cheap) or you could go there for a delicious, inexepensive weekend dinner in your best going out clothes. I love the chicken lettuce wraps, chicken quessadillas, nachos, & the flautas are SO good! But I've heard good things about the cajun pasta dish and the honey stung fried chicken. The clientele are a mix of young urbanites, and yes, it is DENVER, so you will see the occasional homeless person walk by the big, glass front windows. Overall, I highly recommend the Hornet.
