Colorado Center will soon be an unrivaled culinary destination as Junction Food & Drink prepares to bring the ultimate food hall experience to Denver’s new urban hub in spring 2020.
When the one-of-a-kind, chef-driven food hall opens at 2000 S. Colorado Blvd. in Denver, guests will have the opportunity to choose a made-to-order meal from 10 unique, artisanal food stalls in addition to a coffee shop and a central 40-foot Junction Bar all under one roof. Dedicated to showcasing the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of an array of high-quality cuisines, the 12,000-square-foot food hall will feature inspired creations from both locally and nationally renowned chefs.
Colorado Center is a premier mixed-use, transit-oriented development that comprises four Class A office towers totaling approximately 713,000 square feet with a rooftop event space and 11,569 square feet of high-end retail, Dave & Busters, and United Artists Colorado Center Stadium 9 & IMAX.
Junction has already confirmed two of its artisanal food stalls, including Shawarma Shack and Grind & Grill Burgers. Shawarma Shack is led by Chef Yaser Khalaf who is bringing great Mediterranean street food to the food hall. Guests will be front row to unique food theater with Shawarma Shack’s mesmerizing slow cooked, wood-fired meats roasting on spits in the window. Shawarma Shack pays homage to the region with its creativity and diversity, and is a favorite among vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free guests.
“Food halls are revolutionary,” Khalaf said. “Eating habits are changing and consumers are more attracted to grab-and-go and fast-casual options, but they don’t want to give up quality. That’s where the food hall comes in. It allows people to enjoy fast-casual options crafted by great chefs using fresh, quality ingredients. Plus, there’s consistent foot traffic and great exposure for operators. There’s nothing like Junction in the area and it’s in the perfect location. It’ll be the ultimate food-centric destination for everyone looking for world-class meals crafted by some of the best chefs in the business. I can’t wait to be a part of it.”
In addition to giving foodies their new go-to destination, Junction is adding up to 150 new jobs to the local community.
