Cheese, Meat and Wine
There are some trios that never go out of style. For example, fish, chips and beer or french fries, hamburger and a shake. At Second Home, we believe that one trio reigns supreme over anything else and that is the: cheese, meat and wine trio. They compliment each other perfectly and are the ideal start to any meal. We all know that they’re delicious alone, but when put together on a board, crazy, beautiful things begin to happen.
As the seasons change, so do our selections of meat, cheese and wine. We love to source locally when possible and shop seasonally all throughout the year. Guaranteeing that only the freshest and organic ingredients touch your plate.
So the next time you’re sitting down to order, remember this trio and we promise that you will not be disappointed.
Cheers To Bottomless Mimosa Mornings
No self respecting brunch would be complete without its equally satisfying and refreshing liquid counterpart. Which is why we’ve always been a fan of bottomless mimosas. Not only are they refreshing, but they’re the perfect companion to your boozy brunch. Not really into the original, orange juice and champagne mimosa? Not a problem, go ahead and try it with pineapple juice. No restrictions, just great drinks, great food and even better company.
Prefer to do it yourself? Give our DIY Bloody Mary bar a whirl. Equipped with everything you could ever dream of putting inside your Mary, from shrimp and bacon to the traditional olives and pepperoncinis. It’s your chance to get creative with your brunch. No judgments on the extra bacon.
If you have a large party or are celebrating an event, plan ahead and make a reservation. That way you can skip the wait and go straight to the bottomless brunch.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
Nothing says spring has sprung like strawberry rhubarb pie. Some would argue that the tulips blooming around the city and the unseasonably warm evenings are a sure sign that it’s spring, but we over at Second Home would have to argue that it is definitely our strawberry rhubarb pie.
Homemade with local, seasonal ingredients it tastes just like grandma use to make. Plus, you can order a slice and enjoy it after your meal or if you’re feeling really nostalgic feel free to take an entire pie home and share it with the family. Or don’t share it. It’s your pie.
As a side note, we personally think that a glass of our house Sauvignon Blanc pairs splendidly with the spring flavors.
Stay Toasty While Getting Toasted
We have to say that there is nothing like drinking and hanging out around a campfire. The coziness of it all; the nostalgia. It’s hard not to enjoy yourself.
Thrillist just named Second Home’s fire pit as one of the top places to drink at in Denver. And we have to agree. Yes, our fire pit is accommodating and convenient, but what makes it unique to Denver are our cocktails. We pride ourselves on having obscure and remote drinks that one could find at a Speakeasy circa the 1920’s.
As we say goodbye to winter and welcome the warmer nights of spring remember that there is a fire pit located right in the comfort of your second home. We’ll even throw in our fudge brownie with toasted marshmallows to really set the mood.

Because Everything Tastes Better In A Skillet
We’ve heard that dessert is the most important meal of the day-breakfast being a close second. Dessert locks in the flavors of your meal and sets the tone for your night. If you leave a restaurant without something sweet post meal, you can’t help but feel that something’s missing. At Second Home, we understand the struggle. Which is why we pride ourselves on not only offering a myriad of sweet snacks, but also a wide variety of dessert beverages-ranging from Bourbons, Dessert Wines, Scotch and Ports.
A classic favorite around here has been our Cast iron Skillet Cookie which is made with an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie and smothered with vanilla ice cream. The perfect antidote to a long day or an unforgiving sweet tooth.
And trust us when we say that we will never judge you for ordering dessert first. Because we do it all the time.
Local Shout Out: Leopold Bros
Leopold Bros. is a family owned and operated distillery located in the heart of Denver, CO. Being surrounded by countless local breweries and restaurants their presence is warmly welcomed by the community. They definitely do whiskey right, “We malt our barley. We mill our grains. We ferment our mash. We distill everything onsite. We never add artificial ingredients. We barrel and bottle everything by hand.” With a process as meticulous and heartfelt as theirs, it’s no wonder they have developed a sort of cult following throughout not only Colorado but across seas as well.
Looking to get a sip of their award winning whiskey? We offer Leopold’s New York Apple Flavored Whiskey. Enjoy it over ice or add it into your favorite cocktail!
New Years Eve at Second Home
There is nothing more frustrating than running around on New Years Eve and waiting in lines at various bars, only to be caught outside when the ball begins to drop. NYE is a night to forget the events that transpired in 2014 and look forward to brand new and beautiful year. Because we love champagne and good food, we have devised the perfect evening and would love for you to join us.
There will be a delicious dinner served from 5-11pm complete with Pan Roasted Creekstone Filet and Grilled Maine Lobster Tail. A DJ will get the party started around 9pm and during the night there will be specials on cocktails. And our personal favorite: a complimentary champagne toast will take place at midnight to help ring in the New Year.
Plan ahead and call us today to make your New Years Eve reservations: 303 253 3000
