When the unique chef-driven eatery at 2000 S. Colorado Blvd. is opened.

In Denver, guests have the option of choosing a made-to-order meal from 10 unique artisan stalls, a café and a 40-foot central Junction Bar, all under one roof.

junction food and drink has already confirmed two of its artisan shops, including Shawarma Shack and Grind & Grill Burgers.

Guests have a front-row seat to a unique dining room featuring the Shawarma Shack’s enchanting slow-cooked wood-fired meats, spit-roasted in the window.

Shawarma Shack celebrates the creativity and diversity of the region and is popular with vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free guests.

“Food halls are revolutionary,” Khalaf said. “Eating habits are changing and consumers are increasingly leaning towards takeaway and fast food, but don’t want to sacrifice quality.

This is where the food hall comes in. Here people can enjoy fast, casual meals prepared by great chefs using fresh, high quality ingredients.

 In addition, constant foot traffic and good visibility for the operators. There is nothing like Junction in the area and the location is perfect.

It will be the ultimate culinary destination for those looking for world class cuisine prepared by some of the best chefs in the business. I can’t wait with being a part of it.”

Colorado Center is a transit-oriented, mixed-use project centrally located between downtown and the Denver Tech Center.

It consists of four Class A office towers totaling approximately 713,000 square feet, including 11,569 square feet of luxury retail, Dave & Busters and United Artists Stadium 9 & IMAX.

Colorado Center is jointly owned by a fund managed by ASB Real Estate Investments and Lincoln Property Group.

As well as offering foodies their new favorite destination, the Junction will create up to 150 new jobs for the local community.

Junction is currently looking for chefs with innovative ideas that can be implemented in a service environment. For more information and to register, visit Junctionfoodanddrink.com.

After original April opening plans stalled, Junction Food and Drink finally opened its doors! In fact, this is now the dining hall closest to the Cherry Hills neighborhood.

There is an abundance of office space around the Junction, the well used RTD Park and Ride and Cigna.

The University of Denver and University Park/Observatory Park neighborhoods are across the street. Locals are excited to finally have an upcoming restaurant in the area!
