In Part 3 of our Colorado Style campaign, we profiled restaurateur Bryan Dayton of the Boulder based Oak at Fourteenth restaurant, and more recently, the Acorn restaurant in Denver. Along with partner Steven Redzikowski, Bryan runs two of Colorado’s most sought-after restaurants. Oak and Acorn both focus on bringing contemporary American cuisine, with local and seasonal ingredients, to the hip Boulder and Denver dining scenes.
It’s the duo’s commitment to service and quality of product that inspired us to call them up and offer them an opportunity to be a part of our Colorado style project.
We sat down with Bryan Dayton to ask him about his business and the shirt fabric he picked out.
[Bryan] I think it’s our attention to the wood fired cookery and the details of the beverage program. I think the passion of our teams sets this apart to how they execute everyday!
A bartender is someone who worked behind the stick prior 2005 that battened for the craft and the love of hospitality. I’m a bartender. A mixologist is a modern bartender. It’s a fancy name.

I’m an old skate rock and roll punk at heart. I love it. It fit well with my roots yet still a bright color!
You might see something coming down the pipeline in the near future! I’ll keep you posted!;)
Drop in to Acorn sometime in Denver (3350 Brighton Blvd) to say hello to Bryan – and keep an eye out for that shirt!
