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.

One of my favorite mountain towns is pouring one of my favorite drinks next month! ⛰ 🍷 Don’t miss all the wine that’ll be flowing at the @breckwineclassic September 15-17 (go to their website for the schedule and tickets). . And if you can’t make it up to Breck, you can always go wine tasting at @carboywinery right here in Denver — which is where I got this preview of the Colorado wines they’ll be showcasing in Breck. They also have an awesome wine club you can join that offers regular shipments to your door and discounted wines at their awesome location attached to @loganstreetrestaurant (they also have locations in Littleton, Breckenridge, and Palisade). And shown on the cover is their delicious summer frosé mixed with frozen sangria! 😋 🍷 . . . #winetasting #coloradoevents #winelover #winewinewine #winewednesday #ilovewine #breckenridge #pourmeanother

Here’s a fun idea for your next fancy dinner party or private event: hire a private chef!👨‍🍳 We recently got to try some dishes by @chefflood of @mixers.and.morsels — and shown is one of the best family-style dishes from the night: grilled bavette steak with a bordelaise sauce and seared foie gras (accompanying arugula salad not pictured). Send Chef a PM to plan your next Colorado event with dishes like this! . . . #denverlife #denverliving #privatechef #foiegras #dinnerpartyideas #milehighlife #favoritethings #fancydinner #steak #steakdinner

🦪 If you know me, you know I’m still a NorCal girl at heart who loves to crush some oysters — and @jaxfishhouse has been my go-to for happy hour oysters for the last 10 years I’ve been in Denver. 🦪 Therefore, I feel obligated to spread the word about this Friday’s National Oyster Day celebration at Jax starting at 3pm — both downtown and in Glendale (the latter also has a sweet rooftop). ☀️ Swipe right to see some of the specials, and don’t forget to make a reservation at your local Jax location! Come say hi if you end up at the downtown one! 💋 . . #oysters #nationaloysterday #jaxfishhouse #downtowndenver

Woodie Fisher (@woodiefisher) has one of the most amazing restaurant atmospheres — complete with beautiful olive tree growing right in the middle of the airy, glass-roof dining room. 🌳 Their menu changes seasonally, and we got treated to some of their summer specials — which were fresh and delicious!☀️ Standout items I’d recommend: smoked salmon tartare appetizer, melon & prosciutto salad, pork short rib entrée, avocado cheesecake dessert, and mango margarita. 🐠 🍈 🥑 🍹 . Happy Hour is 7 days a week 4-6pm. And check out their website for “happenings” — fun events such as yoga on the rooftop, pups on the patio, and live music nights. 🧘‍♀️ 🐶 🎸 . . . #WoodieFisher #denverfoodscene #denverfood #denvereats #summerfood #denverrestaurants #foodpics #denverlife #denverliving

☀️ CAN YOU BELIEVE IT’S HALFWAY THROUGH SUMMER!? Take advantage of the rest of this sunny season with lobster tacos at bartaco (@bartacolife) — only available until Sept 5. Fresh lobster meat poached with warm lemon brown butter, served with hominy and cilantro. . And don’t forget one of their delicious pineapple or watermelon cocktails — also perfect for summer! 🍍 🍉 . . . #bartacosecret #bartaco #bartacolife #lobstertaco #tacotuesday #denverfoodscene #denvereats #denverfood #tacosarelife #lovefood #letstacoboutit #tacostacostacos

Some of the best crab cakes I’ve ever had: large chunks of jumbo crab meat on a hot plate, still bubbling with sizzling butter. Thanks @ruthschris! . Denver locations are in downtown and DTC. . #crabcakes #sizzle #getinmybelly😋 #denvereats #dinnerdates #ruthschris #denverfood #denverfoodscene #foodpics #buttermeup

I often get questions about my favorite [fill in the blank] type of restaurant in Denver — especially from out-of-state visitors or recent transplants — so I built this page on my website just for that! It’s still in it’s early stages, so it’s a bit low-tech (no custom maps or filters) — but I hope it’s helpful! . You can find it via the link in my profile ( — and then right below the banner image or in the main menu. . It’s a quick collection of all my favorite spots, organized by (clickable) category: African / Ethiopian, BBQ, Cajun / Creole, Caribbean / Jamaican, Chef’s Table / Omakase, Chinese, Comfort Food, French, Hamburgers, Hot Pot, Indian, Italian, Japanese: Ramen, Japanese: Sushi, Korean, Mediterranean / Israeli, Mexican / Latin, New American / Continental, Pizza, Seafood, Spanish / Tapas, Steakhouses, Thai, Vietnamese / Pho. . Of course, I’m always open to suggestions for new categories or restaurant additions. Just comment below or DM me! 💋

Behold: the 12-shot tree at @eatnecio — tequila with flavors of mango, strawberry, watermelon, and tamarind. If you’ve also seen their Mangonada (reel before this), you are probably starting to realize that Necio has some super fun drink options. You can even get an entire margarita “punch bowl” shaped like an enormous Patron bottle and containing an entire bottle of Patron! 😆 Party brunch anyone? . . . #denversbest #shottree #denverbrunch #denverdrinks #partybrunch #girlshavingfun #takeashotforme #jointheparty #comegetsome

If there is a more perfect summer drink than the frozen mango tower that is the Mangonada at @eatnecio — I don’t know what it is. I think I’m in love. 🥭 . . . #denversbest #frozenmargarita #mangonada #denverdrinks #summerdrinks #summerlove #bigassdrink
