Local chef Jose Avila of Machete Tequila & Tacos is making history with his restaurant, La Diabla Pozole y Mezcal, at 2233 Larimer St.

Why it matters: The restaurant is the only spot in the state focusing on pozole, Avila says. Pozole is a traditional hominy and meat soup of Mexico, where he grew up.

  • The restaurant's mission is to "celebrate caldos and culture by sharing historic dishes and drinks with the people of Denver," the website reads.

When to visit: Friday–Saturday 10am–12am; Sunday 10am–9pm; Monday 3–9pm; Tuesday–Wednesday 11am–10pm; Thursday 10am–11pm.
