New bustling restaurant and bar in the Union Station neighborhood

Rustic wood-fired fare in downtown Denver

Indulge in soulfully rustic cooking with aged cuts of local beef, pork, lamb, game or seafood caramelized over an authentic wood-fire grill at this Modern American Restaurant. The fare at Citizen Rail reflects the passion of the artisans behind the grills with dishes ranging from mesquite fired mussels and house-prepared charcuterie boards to bone-in smoked shortrib, Alaskan halibut and favorites from our Butcher Shop. A dry aging room displays the finest house-butchered cuts—spoils of Colorado’s abundant local farms and fields. Classic craft cocktails, distinctive local craft beers and a curated list of bold wines complement each dish.

Citizen Rail’s warm ambience aims to nourish the Union Station neighborhood with a dining room that provides exclusive views of the wood-fire cooking and a lively outdoor heated patio.
