Out & About: Call
Here’s the 4-1-1, Folks:
Nestled amongst the numerous breweries and bars on Larimer Street in RiNo is Call, a small and bright eatery with a big patio that the Denver Flea team has grown to love. Owned by Craig Leiberman, founder of 34 Degrees Crisps, the European-inspired, all-day cafe is helmed by Culinary Director and Executive Chef Duncan Holmes and Beverage Director and Manager Allison Anderson. Whether you stop by in the morning for an espresso and pastry; at lunch for a salad or sandwich; or for an end-of-day wind down at happy hour or dinner, Call is offers a variety of drinks and dishes sure to please.
Adjacent to Call will soon be Beckon, a nighttime concept with a chef's table, tasting menus, and rotating dim sum items.
Call's daytime menu runs the gamut from light morning dishes to heartier lunch plates. In the early a.m., choose from house-culture yogurt with seeded granola, blueberries, and honey and a pork and fried egg sandwich on a brioche bun, giardiniera, and aioli. Come lunchtime, nosh on the shaved fennel and apple salad or the chicken salad sandwich. A robust menu of coffee drinks and other items like tonics and kombucha is also available.
Weekend brunch recently launched, offering many of Call's daytime items - and since brunchtime = drinking time, there's no shame in pairing one of their brunch dishes with a cocktail or two.
On the subject of booze, Call serves up original cocktails like Bird Talk with tequila, grapefruit juice, corianer honey syrup, hot salt, and sparkling water and a classic Aperol Spritz, as well as beers, sake; and red, white, and sparkling wines.
During happy hour Thursday-Saturday, we love the "Tap & Tasty" option - one drink like a Prosecco or Pilser + a snack such as housemade potato chips or creamy feta is yours for 5 bucks. Also - be sure to grab a Chocolate Chip Cookie before you go - or any of the desserts, really.
Call is open Tuesday-Wednesday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m.; Thursday-Saturday from 8 a.m.-9 p.m.; and Sunday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Happy hour is offered Tuesday-Wednesday from 12 p.m.-3 p.m. and Thurdsay-Saturday from 3-6 p.m.
