For those not familiar with The Source, this indoor food market is situated squarely in Denver’s trendy River North (RiNo. The Source is a collaborative space containing restaurants, artisan markets, a bakery, coffee shop and a butcher shop.
The Source is located in a giant warehouse that was once a brick foundry. The tall ceilings and industrial flourishes of The Source give it a modern vibe. My friend and I decided to check out The Source recently for a relaxed night out.We started our evening in the center of The Source at the RiNo Yacht Club.
The RiNo Yacht Club: Handcrafted to Perfection
This bar and lounge with an accompanying seating area boasts an impressive selection of craft drinks.The uniformly hip wait staff provided outstanding service and was very attentive throughout the course of our time there. The selection of drinks at RiNo Yacht Club were strong and flavorful.I ordered the Princess Buttercup – a drink made of tea infused gin, absinthe, egg whites, and a few other complex flavors. The Princess Buttercup was aromatic and full textured with a potent undercurrent of bitters.Once we finished our cocktails at the RiNo Yacht Club we decided that it was time for street tacos. Comida is conveniently located in The Source.
Comida was known in Denver for their pink food truck prior to the restaurant opening. Although the establishments located in The Source tend to share an earnestly hipster aesthetic, Comida differentiates itself with an air of sophistication. The staff here was conscientious and friendly. Their tacos are consistently filling and affordably priced. I ordered a Camarones a la Diabla taco and a Sombra Shroom Tostada. The Camarones a la Diabla taco was an exercise in spice and was mouth-wateringly good. The taco consists of shrimp over jalapeño grits with pico de gallo, avocado, lime, house crema and cotija. The Sombra Shroom Tostada is topped with mushrooms in Sombra Mezcal over roasted garlic mash with crema and cotija, The Sombra Shroom Tostada also had a little to heat to it.
If you venture to The Source, make sure to stop by Comida or the RiNo Yacht Club, you will not be disappointed.
