Donating to charities local and national, TAG restaurant is known to be one of the most giving restaurants in Denver. Last year, they donated up to $70,000 and this year they have put forth their efforts toward (and even organized) events such as Moonbeam Harvest Festival, Taste of the Nation Denver and more.

This month, TAG restaurant’s choice of charity is the NFL Kick Hunger Challenge, which supports local food banks such as Food Bank of the Rockies. TAG restaurant decided to pick their top selling cocktail, Black Rose and their top selling appetizer, Taco Sushi to represent NFL Kick Hunger Challenge. For every order, $1 would be donated to the charity it represents.

It’s no surprise that the taco sushi is the top selling appetizer on the menu. Since the opening of the restaurant, the Taco sushi was born and has been the go-to finger food for locals and visitors. For a Denver restaurant such as TAG, it’s not common to have an item on the menu linger for more than two seasons but when Denverites love a dish they love it.

The Black Rose, which is made up of Vodka, muddled blueberries and Prosecco is apparently Denver’s choice of beverage when dinning at TAG. It is bright pink in color but the flavor is a lot quieter than its color so it’s best paired with any dish with strong flavors.

TAG dishes are all about savoring so be sure to enjoy The Black Rose and the taco sushi. However, if you decide to have more than the charity-by-food items, the caramelized buttered fish is highly recommended. The Hon Shemeji sauce is a fantastic compliment to the buttered fish. Topped with a perfect touch of sweet julienned gala apple and balanced out with the edamame and soy bean, this dish is a top choice.

If you’re looking for a fun and flavorful drink, take a gander with he Cherry and Sage Southside cocktail. Instead of your typical southside mix, sage leaves replace the mint leaves giving it a more robust but smooth taste. People can be weird about the gin but the Cherry and Sage Southside will have you rethink the juniper-based drink. The sage surprisingly compliments the gin and the cherry sweetens the bitterness– you won’t go wrong with this choice.

Now that you have two charity-by-food items and two other hidden menu gems, make your way to TAG restaurant and support the charities as well as your local restaurant. The charity will continue through the month of October.
