The Emporium Kitchen and Wine Market



At The Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market, guests will find a wide variety of value-driven wines in our wine shop, house-made charcuteries, artisanal farmstead cheeses, unique condiments, special local products, as well as gourmet sandwiches, grilled pizzas and to-go deli items. From fresh flowers and gifts for discerning gourmands to a quick weekday lunch, the Emporium Market offers it all?

The Emporium’s kitchen and dining room offers an exceptional restaurant experience highlighting locally sourced, quality ingredients: from fresh fish to wild foraged mushrooms. Signature menu items include House-made Charcuterie Platter with pickled vegetables and mustards, Blue Hill Bay Mussels Frites with white wine, herbs, shallots and butter, and BBQ Wagyu Brisket. Other favorites include Wood-Grilled Spring Trout with roasted fennel, clams & saffron broth and Grilled Pizza with spinach, marinated olives, zucchini, pine nuts and taleggio cheese.

The Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market will be open 7 days per week serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, happy hour and brunch. It is opening in Ft. Collins and Savannah in 2017.


Kachina LoDo

Kachina-LoDo-Denver-Coming-Soon (1)

Kachina is a free-spirited, modern Southwestern grill providing an escape in the LoDo district of Denver. Kachina’s inspiration is found in the Four Corners region of Southwest America. Guests are welcomed to a native-inspired space that is a modern interpretation of the airy and relaxing textures of the Southwest, as well as the magic that happens when you combine an Airstream camper, an open fire and a spirited culture.

Go on an adventurous culinary roadtrip with dishes that represent the Southwest like pork posole rojo and the seven different types of Navajo tacos with Native American fried bread. Kachina’s in-house butcher program reenforces our respect for the land in that the whole animal is used in the most creative and succulent manner, while our partnerships with Native American tribes and exploration of their unique Southwestern ingredients brings a whole new layer of spice and originality to our menu.

Continue your journey with a smoky margarita or other selection from our thoughtful wine list, local and regional craft brews, inspired cocktails and agua frescas, or the impressive collection of artisan agave spirits.

Taste what happens when the open road is roamed alongside authentically prepared Southwestern food, fresh margaritas and sipping tequila, and, of course, great friends.

Kachina: Get back to the land. Get back to the Southwest.


Bowerbird Coffee


Bowerbird Coffee, coming to Savannah and Ft. Collins in 2017!
Bowerbird Coffee fits into The Emporium’s mom-and-pop layered eclecticism, but with a fresh, bright, young pop of caffeinated fun.
Bowerbird Coffee is enriched by the partnerships we create with local coffee vendors in the communities we serve.


Poka Lola Social Club


Poka Lola Social Club, coming to Denver in early 2017!
With a nod to turn of the century American soda fountain culture, Poka Lola  Social Club reinvents the every-man’s cocktail bar.  Located in Denver’s Dairy Block, the bar is a place at once to open your palette or to enjoy your favorite standby. Specialty sodas using locally sourced seasonal ingredients are bottled on site for use in crafted cocktails, to enjoy on their own, or to take home.


Urban Farmer Denver


Urban Farmer Denver’s seasonally driven menu will highlight nose-to-tail cuts of Naturally raised meat, carefully curated by Executive Chef Chris Starkus, who was previously the Chef de Cuisine of Urban Farmer Portland, and Culinary Director of the Urban Farmer brand, Matt Christianson. The restaurant focuses on in-house whole animal butchering and ways to use the entire animal throughout the menu. A communal charcuterie station offers guests an interactive and engaging space in which to ‘meet their meat.’

The steakhouse is not entirely focused on meats alone, and will also offer soul nurturing sides, soups, and salads inspired by each season’s abundance. Additionally, diners will find a roaming cheese cart displaying a variety of high pedigree local cheeses. Post supper sweets will be made in-­house and include a variety of baked goods and selection of rotating ice creams and sorbets. The restaurant’s beverage program complements the fresh and seasonal menu with early American inspired cocktails made with Colorado spirits, alongside local Denver craft beers and a curated wine list.

The new Urban Farmer location in Denver’s lower Downtown neighborhood replaces McCormick & Schmick’s at 17th and Wazee, adjacent to The Oxford Hotel in June 2017.
