Foodie Files: Old Major
When I moved to Denver a few months ago, in all my Denver foodie searches Old Major kept popping up. I bookmarked them, and followed their Instagram knowing I would check them out soon. I was on the phone with Chantee one Sunday, chatting about the blog, when they posted a pic of one of their Bloody Marys...Bye, Chantee!! #sorrynotsorry
Located in a cute LoDo area, Old Major was a terrific spot for brunch. Beautiful industrial indoor decor and outdoor patio tables made it a perfect brunch spot for this unseasonably warm Denver fall. I sat at the inside bar where the hangar-type doors where open, giving it any outside feel. For your brunch Bloody, you had a choice of garnishes. Go big or go home! I went with "The Works"--which contained a selection of meats, shrimp, celery, olives, pickles, etc. and the right amount of spice. Delicious!
Next, I ordered their charcuterie board. A friendly waiter explained everything on the board to me--but my eyes were glazed over and I don't remember much of what he said. I do remember the waiter describing the cheese as "Euphoria cheese" which was the best description for this cheese. This was the best charcuterie board I've had!! At other places, there will be a couple items that I don't like and don't finish. My board was EMPTY when they picked it back up. Like, they probably didn't need to wash it (j/k).
I finished the afternoon off with an incredible Blood Orange Mimosa. Most people in the restaurant had one. Fresh squeezed juices makes such a difference.
In sum, I will definitely be visiting Old Major again for brunch. The prices were reasonable, there's something on the menu for everyone, and the drinks were perfect for brunch. The staff were hip and friendly. My appetite has been off lately, so I wasn't able to indulge in their chicken and waffles or breakfast burger--which looked and smelled amazing as they passed by me. Also, their dinner menu is worth pursuing as well--Curry Bratwurst?!?! What?!?! Maybe I'll go tonight...
