twelverestaurant's interpretation of "Modern American" cuisine involves using food that is globally influenced, but locally and seasonally available; and letting the natural product speak for itself. Our ingredients are of the highest quality, chosen especially for you, and handled with the utmost care. An eclectic wine list complements each month's menu.

Wherever possible, twelverestaurant collaborates with Colorado farms, ranchers, and fisheries that are sustainable and ecologically-minded. Monthly menus include vegetarian and gluten-free options. All menus are printed on recycled paper printed with soy ink. Here's what's for dinner at twelverestaurant...
