After 15 years in business in Connecticut, we were looking for a new community that would be the perfect fit for Kawa Ni. While visiting Denver in 2021, we knew we had found the ideal location for expansion.
Everything about the city excited us, from the people to the atmosphere and the beautiful the landscape… it all felt right.
We started with lefarm, one tiny 40 seat restaurant with 5 employees who just wanted to serve really great food. We believed that if we sourced the best ingredients and created a warm and inviting atmosphere, people would come, and they did. Almost fifteen years and multiple concepts later, that same philosophy is still the cornerstone of our company.
Kawa Ni is our Izakaya/Japanese Pub concept. The word Izakaya in Japanese is made up of three kanji(居酒屋)with the meaning, “stay-drink-place.” A spot to grab a drink, settle in, and get comfortable.
While there are raw fish items on our menu, it is not sushi focused. You will find dumplings, noodle bowls, rice bowls and much more. We have a vast assortment of whiskey but have curated a cocktail list with the same care as we do our food menus.
We pride ourselves in creating an atmosphere for our staff to work in and our clientele to dine in that is warm and welcoming.
We hope you’ll stop in, say hello and try us out.
