Euclid Hall – Denver

After walking around the extremely touristy 16th st mall, we walked over to Euclid Hall for some grub. They specialize in pub grub and the place is really cool. I really liked the decor, especially their unique light fixtures. There is a big bar and open kitchen and some seating downstairs. Then there’s also a huge dining space upstairs. At first, I had no idea the place was so big. But looks can be deceiving. There are some outdoor tables as well.
They make a bunch of their own sausages and bratwurst. But as you may have guessed, we were all sausaged out from Biker Jim’s earlier. They have a bunch of local beers on draft, as obviously, Denver is a big beer town. Also, they have a study hall every day, which is their version of happy hour.
I’d never had poutine before but have always wanted to try it. When I saw that they carried it on their menu, I had to try it. I wasn’t sure which one to get but S said we should try the duck one. What is poutine? It is typically french fries topped with cheese curds and gravy. This particular one at Euclid Hall was topped with roasted duck, duck gravy, cheddar cheese curds, and black pepper. I don’t know how authentic this is, but I like poutine! Except I didn’t really like the duck. In fact, I don’t really like duck, except at chinese restaurants. So I would have preferred the meat. Oh well. But fries with cheese and gravy on top? I’m all for it!
We also go their version of the Oyster Po’boy. It is served on a hearty thick potato bread roll, with bacon aioli, Jorel’s hot sauce, cucumber, and red onion. Ooh, this was so good! And the best part? The cucumber, because you know, that makes it healthy, and the Jorel’s hot sauce! Who or what is Jorel’s hot sauce? I have no freakin idea! But it was pretty amazing. If it’s someone who works at Euclid Hall, can I have the recipe? If it is available commercially, I need to get it! The service was fine. The prices are low, but that’s because the portions are not large. They are not teeny portions, they’re normal sized, as they should be, not cheesecake factory size. I recommend it!
