Citizen Rail


Located in Denver’s LoDo district next to Kimpton Hotel Born, Citizen Rail is inspired by Colorado’s legacy of simple, savory American fare. Chef Christian Graves meticulously sources the meats that are butchered and aged on site at Citizen Rail, then charred over the live-fire grill. Classic cocktails, Colorado craft beers and a curated wine list complement smoke-kissed dishes like mesquite-grilled mussels and a decadent short-rib burger on a griddled brioche bun.
