Hi there! My name is Natalia Story and I have been living in Denver, Colorado for more than 10 years now (although I travel quite a bit, as well). I have always had a special connection to food — and I have been avidly eating and drinking my way through the world for as long as I can remember. I think a great meal or a drink together can create the most lasting memory and truly tie people together. My passion is discovering hidden gems and delicious new bites (or sips) — and sharing my experiences with others. I cover local restaurants, the occasional travel destination for food, and carefully-chosen food and drink products that I believe will appeal to my audience.

Special occasions call for special wine. 🍷 . I love a good wine — especially when it has a great brand/company behind it — and @bacawine drew me in when they not only told me that it was a family-owned, women-run winery in Sonoma county — but that they also make wine “for people like us: the curious, the adventuresome, the lovers of life, with a gleam in their eye and a penchant for the uncharted.” 💃 Yes ladies! . 🍷 BACA produces mostly Zinfandels — like this 2020 “Tug O War” Russian River Zinfandel, which received 95 points from @wineenthusiast. Plush and complex — but also fruity, with notes blackberry, raspberry preserves, red plum, and a hint of blood orange. Wine veterans and novices alike will love this wine. . 📸 by @mirandatillinghast . . . #BACAambassador #BACAwines #zinfandel #sonomawine #redwine🍷 #zinfandelwine #redwinelover #winerecommendation #winesofcalifornia #winelife #wineblogger #valentinesdayvibes #romanticdinner

The cocktails at @jackswoodfire on @southpearlst are not only beautiful, but also delicious! I like to think that if I were a cocktail, I’d be their Millionaire Martini with Belvedere vodka, elderflower liqueur, like juice, sparkling wine, and gold sparkles! ✨ . I maaaaaay have been slightly less sparkly by drink #4. 😬 But their Crystal Chocolate Martinis are a must for dessert! 🍫 Stoli vanilla vodka, 360 double chocolate vodka, crème de cacao, and just a bit of chocolate (stick). It tastes just like chocolate, but is all booze. 😆 . . . . . #martinis #denverdrinks #denvercolorado #denverlife #denverliving #vodkacocktails #sparkleandshine

🌹 Just in time for Valentine’s Day: presenting one of our new favorite steakhouses and date night spots, @jackswoodfire on @southpearlst — which recently hosted us for this amazing dinner. . Some must-try highlights: 🍸 All the cocktails here are beautiful and yummy, from the sparkling Millionaire Martinis to the dessert Chocolate Martinis. 🥣 The French Onion Soup is a top contender for our favorite in town, due to depth of broth flavor, cheese quality, and that darker bread inside. 🥩 Jack’s has a variety of steak cuts available, but the highlight is their filet selection with signature crusts. We had “The Duke” — with Gruyère cheese, roasted red peppers, panko crust, garlic, and spicy Calabrian peppers. YUM! 🦞 The lobster tail “steak enhancement” has so much more flavor than lobster we’ve had at other steakhouses. 🍚 The lemongrass scallops and coconut wild rice were a last-minute addition for us, but hands-down a table favorite we’d come back for. 🍮 The Bourbon bread pudding. OMG. . We also had the light and flaky Chilean seabass, overstuffed Maryland crab cake, pecan grilled shrimp with flavorful side sauces, wedge salad with a unique dill dressing, creamy seafood risotto, and other outstanding dishes — that were honestly all delicious — but everything can’t make the video and our favorites list! I don’t think you can go wrong here, though. 👏 . 🎉 Also: while the downstairs at Jack’s makes for a perfect date night, the upstairs has a much more upbeat vibe if you’re looking for a fun spot for a night out with friends. . . . #denvercolorado #denverfood #denvereats #denverfoodscene #denverdatenight #southpearl #denverliving #denverlife

Life is too short to not look fabulous — or to drink bad wine. 👏 . 🍷 This rosé of Zinfandel may come in a can, but it’s a top-notch, small-batch, lightly-oaked wine from one of my favorite Sonoma county wineries: @bacawines. 💕 BACA is a family-owned, women-run winery that makes wine “for people like us: the curious, the adventuresome, the lovers of life, with a gleam in their eye and a penchant for the uncharted.” 💃 They forgot colorful, sparkling, and fabulous — but that’s alright. 😉 . . . . #roseallday #bacaambassador #bacawines #forthezin #zinfandel #drinkmorewine #stayfabulous #drinkmorewine #winelovers🍷 #sonomawine #drycreekvalley

This one is from my kitchen y’all — and it’s a super easy, go-to dish of mine: grilled skirt steak. 🥩 This was a beautiful, juicy cut I had delivered from @billydoe_meats — marinated overnight in tenderizer seasoning and pineapple juice, and then sprinkled with some steak rub before being thrown on the grill. I usually make 2 separate sauces: a classic parsley & oregano chimichurri — and a spicier red one with roasted bell peppers, Calabrian Chiles, and pine nuts — but this time I sort of combined the two with what I had in the fridge. 🌿 🌶️ . 🥩 LINK IN PROFILE FOR A DISCOUNT OFF YOUR FIRST BILLYDOE MEATS ORDER. 🥩 . . . . . #skirtsteak #grilledsteak #beautifulfood #meatdelivery #dinnerideas #supportsmallfarms #supportfarmers #goodingredients #farmtotable #supportssmallbusiness #homecooked

Check out the @halcyoncherrycreek rooftop for “Après in the Clouds” — a beautiful setting to watch the sunset, try your hand at curling, and have some delicious bites and drinks in Cherry Creek! ☀️ 🥌 🥂 . The winter cabanas are super cute & cozy and seat up to 6 people — just remember to make reservations and place your food order in advance! We loved the oysters, caviar, tinned fish & mussels, charcuterie platter, and braised chicken. 🦪 🐠 🧀 🍗 This was honestly the best braised chicken I’ve ever had y’all — which I did not expect! . Hours: Thu 3:30-8pm, Fri-Sun 1-8pm . . . . Thank you for hosting us Halcyon! #hosted . . . . . . #denver #colorado #denvercolorado #cherrycreek #denverfood #denvereats #denverlife #denverliving #thingstodoindenver #rooftopbar #denverfun #apres

Finally made it up to @rosettafoodhall in Boulder, and I’m glad I did! Fantastic variety of food (from pizza, to ceviche, to noodles, to desserts) — and perfectly made cocktails (like this espresso martini). 🥂 And at night, I hear it turns into a super fun party with a DJ and everything. I’ll have to come back for it! . Thanks @milehighbites for bringing me here! . . . . #bouldercolorado #colorado #boulderfoodie #boulderfood #coloradofoodie #coloradofood #coloradoeats #coloradolife #coloradoliving #beautifulfood #milehigheats #noodles #noodlepull #noodsnoodsnoods
