After a summer full of buzzy hotel restaurant openings in RiNo, Cherry Creek has a new offering with a longtime local chef behind it. Paul Nagan’s Narrative restaurant opens Wednesday for all-day service at the Jacquard Hotel & Rooftop, 222 Milwaukee Street. Nagan most recently led the kitchen at downtown’s Range restaurant in the Renaissance Hotel, where he served food from the American West.
His new Narrative will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a marble-fitted dining room. Nagan’s American menu includes appetizers like Caesar salad deviled eggs, salads including a citrus-marinated beet, and sandwiches such as the chicken Cubano. Dinner will offer filet mignon and a beef short rib cooked for 48 hours. Mascarpone cheesecake and ice cream from local purveyor Sweet Action are on the dessert list. Some 750 wine bottles will be available.
The bar will serve snacks and small plates like Korean barbecue and elote-style guacamole. These dishes will also be on the menu at the Jacquard’s rooftop bar, lounge, and pool, Kisbee on the Roof, which will open at a later date.
