The difficulty then, is finding the best blend of atmosphere, ease and delectability. One would be hard-pressed to find a better location than Tamayo. Located on the southwest corner of historic Larimer Square, the restaurant sits on some of the best real estate on the block. Offering both extensive lunch and dinner menus, Tamayo is also just a great place to grab a drink. Doubling as a tequileria with over 100 selections covering all the categories—silvers, golds, reposados, añejos and extra añejos—Tamayo’s tequila-based cocktails are temptation enough to make it a requisite stop on any tour of the downtown dining scene…

Review: DeLeon Tequila

Review: DeLeon Tequila    Drink Spirits

Although the line is considerably less expensive than DeLeón Luxury line, it’s still well above the core offerings of other key competitors in the space including, most notably, Patron and Tequila Avion.
