Fodor's Expert Review 1515 Restaurant
Owner Gene Tang seems to be one of the hardest-working men in the restaurant business, judging by the personal attention he gives the tables in his two-story place. Walking past the first-floor bar gives diners the feeling of being someplace important, as locals hang out and take in the scene. Once upstairs, though, it's all business, with efficient servers bringing a succession of world-beat fare that's highly structural and eminently flavorful. Slow-cooked Colorado lamb shares space on the menu comfortably with duck prepared three ways, and trendy ingredients complement textbook preparations. The menu includes a few vegetarian options, meat lovers have several impressively prepared steaks from which to choose, and the wine list is a wonder—affordable and daring.
