Lime an American Cantina opens in the Denver Pavilions

Lime is now pouring at the Denver Pavilions.
After eighteen months, Lime finally returned to downtown when Lime an American Cantinaopened on Thanksgiving in the Denver Pavilions. The original Lime was in Larimer Square, but after eleven years there, owners Curt and Pam Savage Sims closed that subterranean restaurant in the summer of 2012 and started looking for a new space downtown. Looking up: The new Lime is on the top floor of the Denver Pavilions, in a spot that hadn't been occupied before (although Curt has had clubs in shopping center), which help explains why the build-out took so long.

But the couple -- longtime fixtures on the entertainment scene, both in front of audiences (Pam is a singer as well as a cook) and behind (Curt has been opening clubs in this town for more than three decades) -- had plenty of other projects to keep them busy. Although they closed another Lime in the Landmark project in Greenwood Village, Lime XS is going strong on Sixth Avenue, and there's also an offshoot in Winter Park.

They also opened Cantina at 1109 Lincoln Street, in a building they've owned since the Denver Buffalo Company days, but closed that last month (the folks who have Stoney's next door are going to open Krewe Crescent City BBQ there this month). That gave them time to make the final push to open Lime in the Denver Pavilions, which opened with the same killer margs but a new, and sophisticated, look.

You can see that in our slide show here -- or just head to the top floor of the Pavilions for a holiday shopping break. You've earned that marg.

I've never been to Lime on 6th but used to go to the Larimer one a lot. Had some not-so-great service there a few times, but I do like the food and margs. Good happy hour deals. I'll definitely try their new location.

No, this restaurant has terrible service, it is overpriced, the food is not good and finally the owner does not keep his word! Love Pavillions, but this place, no way!

Not, it's not. All the nightlife energy in downtown Denver runs in a straight line from Larimer Square up to the Ballpark district. This will do fine as a restaurant, but not as a nightlife spot.
