Think a mortuary isn’t the ideal spot for a hotspot restaurant?
Fearless chef and owner, Justin Cucci, does not shy away from Linger’s morbid roots. Proudly darkening the “O” on the old Olinger Mortuary neon sign, Cucci has brought new life and delicious eats to Denver’s LoHi neighborhood with Linger.
Linger is equally whimsical and morbid with vintage funeral fans and a repurposed food truck turned kitchen. With one of the best rooftops in the city (available for private parties up to 200 guests), as well as moody dining rooms this space has something for everyone.
Let’s talk food, shall we?
Inspired by streetside nooks around the world, Linger’s menu has a little bit of everything with global small plates. Start strong with some Mongolian BBQ Duck Bao Buns with miso-pickled cucumbers and scallions. Next, try a round of Devils on Horseback with smoked bacon, medjool dates, herbed goat cheese, and sambal gastrique.
Indian food fans will enjoy the Dahi Puri “Perfect Bites” with chickpeas, raita, tamarind, pomegranate, crispy lentil sev, garam masala, and tomato chutney.
And for those of you looking for something All American, you won’t be disappointed with the Americana BBQ Ribs with potato salad, sweet corn, pickled watermelon rind, and summer pickles.
Keeping the global-influence theme strong, the cocktail menu features flavors from South America to Asia including the dangerously drinkable New Saigon with gin, cucumber, Thai basil, jalapeno, lime, and black pepper.
Linger throws down for dinner, lunch, brunch, and even happy hour with $5 snacks and $6 drinks. Come for a fun night out or book a private event here for a memorable celebration.
