Shade Restaurant offers a globally-inspired menu that has made it a dining favorite since owner Claire Smith opened it in 2003. It's a neighborhood space, capturing the eclecticism and friendliness of the Heights and encourages an interaction with life on 19th Street. A selection of sensibly crafted dishes in an atmosphere of attentive and hospitable service. The seasonable menu is creative, fresh and affordable. The decor is contemporary, yet inviting, with a fabulous dining room and cozy outdoor seating. Our goal at Shade is to provide a comfortable establishment where customers consider themselves "regulars".
Executive Chef Kenten Marin brings to the kitchen his internationally-trained skills that have made him one of the city’s most acclaimed chefs.
