Avanti Food & Beverage opened the doors to their Boulder location on October 3rd! If you haven’t heard of them yet, Avanti Food & Beverages original location is in Denver. The hit eatery opened their doors on Pearl Street earlier this month. The unusual restaurant isn’t what you’d typically expect, the building is made up of multiple miniature kitchens that provide housing for a variety of restaurants. The Avanti building features a modern interior, minimalist furniture, and themed booths for each concept restaurant. The Avanti building also features a gorgeous rooftop bar (and one more excellent eatery) adorned with eclectic patterned upholstery and a breathtaking view of the city of Boulder and the Flatirons.
City Hopping Bites
The Boulder location’s food hall features six mini-eateries, one of which has made their way from Avanti’s Denver location for a second appearance. The first restaurant city hopping concept is Quiero Arepas, a gluten free Venezuelan restaurant. The arepa is made up of cornmeal, water, and salt, and is a staple of Venezuelan cuisine. The Quiero Arepas menu is contrived of recipes brought to the US from Venezuela; giving Colorado a taste of Chef Igor Panasewicz’s childhood in every bite.

Boychik is a modern Middle Eastern influenced restaurant that has found a home with Avanti. Chase Devitt teamed up with his childhood companion, Charles Troup, to create Boychik.

Pig and Tiger is a modern Taiwanese restaurant co-owned by Darren Chang and Travis Masar. The atypical name originated from each of their Chinese zodiac signs; Chang was born in the year of the pig and Masar was born in the year of the tiger. Pig and Tiger is a perfect representation of each of the chef’s culinary experiences, whether through training or memories of cooking as a child.
Rooted Craft Kitchen, an American eatery that takes pride in both their farm to table ingredients and their chef’s Colorado roots. Nicholas Kayser has created a restaurant based on “the concept of slow food being cooked fast.” This farm to table concept pulls from Colorado’s farmers markets to create a “Market Menu” that changes in stride with Colorado’s seasons. While the “Craft Menu” is orchestrated by classic American favorites.
New Yorkese is a good ol’ fashioned pizzeria located on Avanti’s rooftop. We’re in love with the idea of a slice and a skyline. This New York inspired pizzeria was started up by Steven Redzikowski,serving blistered crusted pie with the “chew” of a Neapolitan pizza. Grab a slice and a drink and take in the beautiful roof top view.
