Anise COVID-19

Dear Anise Customers,

This morning, Mayor Michael Hancock just ordered for all restaurants and bars in Denver to close for 8 weeks, through May 11. Restaurants can still offer delivery, curb-side pick-up, and drive-thru. These closures will take effect at 8AM tomorrow morning, March 17.

As a service to our community, Anise is committed to continue with take-out and pick-up orders. In addition, Anise will provide Anise curb-side services. What that means is if you call in your orders and pay with credit cards over the phone, Anise will deliver your food to your cars parked along Anise curbside. Please make sure to let us know that you’d like Anise curbside service when you place your order and call us on the phone when you arrive.

As is always, please keep in mind that Anise takes great pride in maintaining a clean and safe environment for all our customers. Anise already follows the strictest food safety standards, but we have taken this COVID-19 pandemic seriously since the start and have brought cleaning and sanitizing to an even higher level. We are now constantly sanitizing and wiping down all commonly used items like door knobs/handles, menus, bill clips, tables, chairs, etc.

Tonight we will be opened for business as usual. This is the last night we are opened before we have to close until May. Anise has started and will practice 6′ social distancing. That means every group of diners will be seated 6′ away from another group. This is for your safety and the safety of others.

A shout out to all the front line COVID-19 First Responders – nurses, doctors, and healthcare providers. We thank you for what you do. We will beat this pandemic together.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support.


Anise would like to introduce Photini®, on the left, and Phojito®, on the right. The Photini® is a perfect blend of VSOP Cognac and 12yr old Scotch accented with pho spice liqueurs. It is the most sophisticated of all drinks.

The Phojito®, on the other hand, is probably the most refreshing drink ever created. We start with 18yrs rum then add fresh limes, muddled mint leaves, and pho spice liqueurs. Come to Anise and enjoy Photini® and Phojito® exclusively! #Anise #Photini #Phojito #Cocktails #Vietnamese #BestDrinks

Banh Mi (Vietnamese Baguette) made its debut in Vietnam around 1830s; and just like Pho, it went through many changes due to wars, migrations, and different cultural tastes. Banh Mi continues to morph itself since its introduction to the Western culinary scene since 1975 after the Vietnam War. In America, if there’s another Vietnamese dish that stands on its own next to the mighty popularity of Pho, it has to be Banh Mi.

Banh Mi is a combination of 2 Vietnamese words – banh and mi. The Vietnamese uses “banh” for pretty much anything that’s made from the Polysaccharides form of Carbohydrates that provide the starches and fiber in your diet. For example, “pho noodle” is called “banh pho” in Vietnamese. “Mi” is the Vietnamese word for wheat.

In America, Banh Mi is synonymous for a delicious Vietnamese sandwich/hoagie/sub that starts with a baguette and filled with scrumptious goodies and fresh vegetables.

At Anise, our delicious Banh Mi is baked in house and can be enjoyed with pork, beef, chicken, vegan tofu, or a special combination of the best Vietnamese hams. All are filled with our freshest vegetables and pickled carrots and daikons.
