Restaurant opens on MSU Denver campus

Degree Metropolitan Food + Drink serves lunch and dinner daily.

Degree Metropolitan Food + Drink has opened on the MSU Denver campus. 

Located inside the SpringHill Suites Denver Downtown at MSU Denver, Degree serves lunch and dinner daily from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., with the bar staying open until midnight every night except for Sunday.

Students from MSU Denver's Department of Hospitality, Tourism & Events are working alongside professional restaurateurs at Degree, earning real-life experience in restaurant operations and management. A portion of all sales at Degree goes to the MSU Denver Foundation, which supports student scholarships. 

Led by Executive Chef Daniel Hyman, Degree's menu features Colorado meats, ethically caught seafood and local produce. Dishes include a Colorado Cobb for $10, Soba Noodle Salad for $10 and a variety of sandwiches and ramen bowls. Entrees such as Harissa Chicken, Gnocchi Salmon and Colorado Drunken Noodles are served beginning at 4:30 p.m.

The bar menu includes 16 wines by the glass and 20 Colorado craft beers, including Tivoli Brewing Co.'s Helles Lager, Left Hand's Nitro Milk Stout and Great Divide's Whitewater Wheat Ale. Degree also serves an inventive list of handcrafted cocktails made from local spirits, including a Rosemary Salty Dog made with CapRock Gin and grapefruit juice for $7 and the Pickled Goat, made with Peach Street Distillers Goat Vodka and pickled Fresno pepper juice for $9.
