Most people choose not to dwell on the fact that the building Linger occupies was a former mortuary called Olinger’s—the “O” on the neon sign had long been busted, and the restaurateurs chose the name of their “eatuary” accordingly. Right in the middle of all the action of LoHi’s busiest street, the restaurant has two levels: a dining room downstairs, and a more casual rooftop patio upstairs. The street-food-inspired menu highlights a few different cuisines, with dishes like a falafel lettuce wrap alongside Vietnamese surf ‘n turf and a masala dosa. For a casual vibe fitting of the food (or a great happy hour), we actually prefer the second floor, which features a bar housed in a refurbished VW bus and beautiful views of downtown Denver.
