- The neighborhood: Downtown Denver
- Why We Love it: We’re long time fans of The Kitchen Community and their growing locations. Built on a longstanding philosophy summed up “believe that gathering around the table and sharing good food and drink is what connects us as family, friends and a community. It’s the essence of “Community Through Food.” The food, the company and the professionalism of the team always keep us coming back for more. See large party and buyout information here.

- The Neighborhood: Lohi
- Why We Love It: Although Avanti has had it’s doors open for a minute, this buzzworthy spot is changing the way Denverites gather. From 5280: “The collective eatery was inspired by European marketplaces and features a rotating roster of chefs and restaurateurs testing out new and exciting restaurant ideas”. With arguably the best view of Denver skyline, Avanti shows no signs in slowing down this holiday season!

- Why We Love It: The newest kid on the block, you’ve likely heard your friends raving about this exciting favorite. Similar to Avanti, this spot is more untraditional but no less amazing. The Denver Post sums it up perfectly: “Together they [Ken Wolf and Jeff Osaka] are bringing to life: an accessible gourmet market that serves as both FOOD EMPORIUM AND NEIGHBORHOOD COMMUNITY SPACE…The goal is to make this corridor an accessible destination for people who want to eat, drink and shop without having to go out of their way to do so. It will be an airy and open food hall where each vendor offers guests something that they can eat on-site, or take on the go…The open-air, multi-use space boasts plenty of comfortable communal seating as well as two outdoor patios; there will be regular food events, classes, and live music.”
