About Rioja

Already a culinary legend, Rioja helped put Denver’s fine dining scene on the map by bringing together local and Mediterranean ingredients into a singular sophisticated menu. Executive chef Jennifer Jasinski (winner James Beard Foundation Best Chef Southwest) and owner/GM Beth Gruitch have created an elegant and welcoming dining experience hailed by the local and national press alike. Rioja offers a seasonally changing dinner menu seven nights a week, lunch Wednesday through Friday, and a one-of-a-kind brunch served on Saturdays and Sundays.
