The latest food hall slated for Denver has announced its tenants.

Junction Food & Drink expects to open in early April at 2000 S. Colorado Blvd., within Lincoln Property Co.’s Colorado Center.

The office-and-retail complex southeast of the I-25/Colorado Boulevard interchange is already home to Dave & Buster’s. BusinessDen reported last spring that the food hall was in the works.

The 10 tenants coming to the 12,220-square-foot food hall are:

+ Big Wave Taco Shop, a concept from Denver-based TAG Restaurant Group, founded by Chef Troy Guard

+  Bird on a Wire Southern Chick’n, fried chicken sandwiches with sides such as mac & cheese and fried pickles

+ Ebisu Ramen and Sushi, offering small plates, sushi rolls, sushi bowls and ramen

+ Grind and Grill Burger, offering “unique twists to traditional burgers.” The restaurant also operates at a food hall.

+ Lazo Empanadas, which has three locations in the Denver area

+ Mr. Miner’s Meat and Cheese, which offers sandwiches and charcuterie boards at Golden’s Tributary Food Hall.

+ Paciugo Gelato, a chain offering gelato and sorbets

+ Pete’s-A-Pie of Denver, serving chef-driven New Haven-style pizza

+ Shawarma Shack, offering slow-cooked meats roasted on spits, as well as vegetarian and vegan options

+ Smok Barbeque, which already operates in RiNo food hall The Source

The tenants were announced by National Food Hall Solutions, a Texas-based company founded in 2018 that operates food halls.

Bird on a Wire, Grind and Grill, and Shawarma Shack all currently operate at National Food Hall Solutions food hall near Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Junction Food & Drink also will feature a 40-foot bar, and a Sonder Coffee & Tea stand, according to a press release. Between indoor and outdoor seating, Junction will be able to accommodate 400 guests.
