Daniel Armitage and Darin McMillan became friends in Junior High when they lived in a small Oklahoma town. They both worked in New York City as vintage buyers before they got the itch to open up their own store, Armitage & McMillan.

Thankfully, Denver’s most anticipated new restaurant Tavernetta waits for you, tucked among the hustle and imposing glass buildings. Peek into the…
