Today Ellen and I drove out to the Highlands in Denver to grab lunch at Linger (if y’all haven’t figured it out yet my friends and I are quite the young foodies). Elle had been to Linger before and raved about its varied street food inspired by cuisines around the world so we were both psyched. As previously mentioned breakfast is my favorite meal to eat out, and we luckily made it in time for brunch.
We could see the sign from across the street, as well as the ice cream place we were already planning to check out afterwards (I take it back… dessert is my favorite meal of the day. In Italy Elle and I would sometimes eat gelato and candy for dinner and wake up starving in the middle of the night, the problem with two sugar addicts living together, but I digress…)
We took the elevator up to the outdoors patio (Elle broke her foot in a freak accident involving our dog last weekend… Shockingly there was no alcohol involved), where we were greeted by a truck that seemed to serve as a bar. It was seat yourself and we chose a large table that gave us a great view of Denver.
Our server was awesome and we quickly ordered $3 dollar cocktails to cool off in the summer heat. Elle chose a spicy Bloody Mary while I went with a basil Mimosa.
For brunch I had a strange Indian inspired egg scramble wrapped up in some sort of bubble wrap type bread. Not the most appetizing description but it was delicious. Elle had spanish inspired egg Benedict, which had a very gourmet presentation and was extremely unique.
We gossiped inappropriately the entire time and the meal went by too quickly. It was extremely reasonably priced and all in all worth the drive over from Boulder. Afterwards we went to the little ice cream place, where I creepily took a picture of the woman scooping out our butterscotch and chocolate ice creams. Then we headed home, content with our sunny Sunday meal.
