( — January 11, 2014) Denver, Colorado — A recent sidewalk poll in Cherry Creek reveals Harman’s as one of the best restaurants in Denver CO. specializing in new American fresh local foods. At the top of the list was a restaurant called Harman’s, formally Phat Thai located in downtown Cherry Creek, Denver. Upon asking people to vote for their favorite restaurants in Denver, CO one of the diners leaving said, “I just sent a picture of my meal to a friend and she said, “That looks like heaven!”” When asked what Sara, avid Bronco’s fan and international traveler,  had ordered she exclaimed, “Grilled Hanger Steak with red wine sauce, roasted fingerling potatoes, wild mushrooms and blue cheese butter.”  

Bret Meier, Manager of Harman’s explained they include only local organic meat in their meals in addition to seasonal fresh local organic vegetables. He explained that switching from their wonderful Thai food menu to a more new American menu better serves the tastes of local diners. Bret said, “Our goal is to be fresh and tasty. We have something different every week. You can be in the mood for anything to eat at Harman’s and everyone in your party will be satisfied.”

When asked why he thought they were so successful he mentioned that they have special events such as the Chef’s Table which premiered last week with Chef John Little. This included a nine course meal that was suggested by restaurant owner, Mark Fisher.

They have another event featuring the Ranchers Dinner with Crystal River Meats – five locally raised proteins, including five beverages for $52.80 set for January 30, 2014.

Another diner mentioned that his favorite vegetable was now one of Harman’s signature snacks called Spicy Fried Brussels Sprouts. He said, “It is the unique amazing taste of these brussels sprouts that keeps me coming back. Of course there are pulled lamb tacos which are to die for as well.”

Their menu shows snacks including oysters, house-made chips, and marinated olives to name a few. Their soups change daily and have small plates that also include pomegranate glazed lamb ribs. Their menu also shows dishes from mac & cheese to butternut squash agnolotti. Their large salads include Smoked Trout Waldorf to Roasted Beet again only mentioning a few items on the winter menu.

Overall this restaurant is modern, clean, welcoming, and very enjoyable. Diners mention the food is consistently great with very little wait time.
