Ryan Fletter, the owner of Barolo Grill, is a man on the move. A sommelier and general manager of the prestigious 24 year old spot, Fletter purchased the business over a year ago and ever since has felt the bug for growth. Pasta is what is cranking every day in the Barolo kitchen so it just made sense that a casual spot that prominently features various kinds of Italian pastas was to be his next move. Those thoughts were the beginnings of Chow Morso and a lease inside Avanti Food and Beverage is what is making it all reality.
Great American Beer Festival marks a craft beer soaked week in Denver. From mini-festivals and rare beer tappings to beer dinners and educational sessions, the GABF calendar is packed with can’t-miss events.
Avanti Food & Beverage has been the temporary residence and incubator for many successful fresh concepts, some coming from veterans in the restaurant industry and others from fresh faces attempting their first brick-and-mortar.

Today Eater updates the Eater 38, our list of Denver’s essential restaurants. This list is our answer to any question that begins with “Can you recommend a restaurant?”
When I heard that Bamboo Sushi was opening in Avanti Food & Beverage, I was both pleased and confused. Pleased because the restaurant is the world’s first Marine Stewardship Council–certified sustainable sushi restaurant. That means you can feel good about every single roll and piece of nigiri and sashimi you order.

By all accounts, this is a company that walks the talk.
Avanti Food & Beverage opened in LoHi last summer, giving chefs the opportunity to test new restaurant concepts before moving to brick-and-mortar.
