Local Customer Spotlight: Denver
This week, we’re virtually visiting the Mile-High City—a place thriving with a solid creative scene, an outstanding food industry, and a beautiful landscape. With a growing focus on environmentalism, a number of diverse restaurant options, and strong values shaping the local scene, Denver is looking more and more enticing to those looking for a new creative community. We’ve assembled a few of our favorite local Denver businesses that embody the ethos that makes this city so unique.
FOOD + DRINK
After tiring of what they called a “homogenous dining experience” in Denver, owners Chris Topham, Jason Ladd, and Kelsey Montague decided to open an establishment all their own. Asbury Provisions is owner operated, meaning you can find these folks behind the bar on any given night offering craft beer, cocktails, and delicious appetizers served up in jars. Their weekend brunch menu and extensive beverage list (25 rotating beers on tap!) have earned them acclaim as one of the best new spots in Denver, and we can’t wait to try it out.

This health-forward eatery offers juices made from local produce, delectable veggie bowls, and hearty salads. Located in the Central Market, Green Seed also supplies their neighboring vendors with fresh produce. Whether you’ve noticed fresh herbs in your cocktail or crisp greens in your sandwich, you’re likely to taste Green Seed making their mark. In addition to bringing healthy options to the market, the Green Seed team is also environmentally responsible, making sure to compost their food waste and donate leftover food to the community.

Owned by the same power couple who operates Green Seed Market, husband and wife duo Stephen Julia and Katsumi Yuso Ruiz supply Central Market visitors with seasonal cocktails. Previously working in Mexico City as small-batch bitters crafters, Stephen and Katsumi truly understand how to make a drink taste delightful while offering exceptional service. Said to have a hand in reviving the food hall vibe in Denver, the dynamic team at Curio Bar should be saluted for offering great products with attention to detail.

Started by celebrated sushi chef Jesus Silva, who brought his skill for California cuisine to the Denver culinary scene, they offer market seafood, prepared tostadas, oysters, and ceviches. Silva’s offers a unique and esteemed option for Denver locals, as fresh seafood can be hard to come by.

For a low monthly fee, you can even become a member of the social club, gaining access to a co-working space, $1 coffees, and entry to special events. Where do we sign up?

Breweries and great beer are an important staple of the Denver culinary scene. Breweries here are also proud to serve as community anchors. After meeting at a Belgian beer tasting, owners Charlie Gottenkieny and Ryan Evans decided to start their own brewery to serve fresh Belgian-style beer made with the highest-quality ingredients they can find. Practicing sustainability in everything they do, the Bruz team even donate their leftover grains and hops to local farmers.
