DENVER, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Larimer Associates and its partners are pleased to announce the first three major restaurant tenants for Union Station, Colorado's next great dining destination: The Kitchen Next Door, Snooze, an A.M. Eatery and a new restaurant and market concept by celebrated Chef Alex Seidel.
The Kitchen Next Door will occupy 4,432 square feet, Alex Seidel's new concepts will absorb roughly 4,900 square feet and Snooze will occupy approximately 2,000 square feet. Seidel's gourmet market will offer fresh products reflecting the restaurant's farm-to-table menu.
Larimer Associates, well-known for its drive and success in creating unique destinations through local, chef-driven establishments and retail boutiques, specially chose these Colorado partners to design a distinctive restaurant compilation at Union Station.
"This is an exciting first step in establishing Union Station as Denver's next great dining destination for both locals and visitors," said Jeff Hermanson, Chief Executive Officer of Larimer Associates. "These award-winning restaurants represent the true Colorado experience and embody downtown Denver's genuine collaborative spirit."
Alex Seidel is the Chef and Owner of Denver's award-winning Fruition Restaurant. Since opening Fruition in 2007, Seidel has been named "Chef of the Year" for 2008 by Denver's 5280 Magazine and one of "Best New Chefs" for 2010 by Food & Wine Magazine.
First opened in Boulder in 2004, The Kitchen is a popular community bistro created by Kimbal Musk, Jen Lewin and Hugo Matheson. The group, which expanded to LoDo last spring with The Kitchen Denver, is excited to open a second Denver location at Union Station.
Snooze, an A.M. Eatery, will serve breakfast and lunch daily at Union Station. Denver entrepreneurs Jon and Adam Schlegel opened the first Snooze in the Ballpark neighborhood in 2006. Snooze now features five bustling Colorado locations as well as a San Diego restaurant. On top of serving flights of pancakes, Snooze at Union Station will also add a take-away counter offering a menu of breakfast sandwiches, AM tacos and coffee.
Scheduled to open in July 2014, Denver's new Union Station will also feature several other locally-owned dining and retail outlets as well as 112 room independent hotel managed by Sage Hospitality. For more information, visit www.unionstationindenver.com.
