The three tenants are: The Kitchen Next Door, Snooze, an A.M. Eatery and a new restaurant and market concept by chef Alex Seidel.

All three restaurants will open in the revitalized train terminal in July 2014, each featuring a large patio for outdoor dining.

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 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, CEO of Larimer Associates.

“These award-winning restaurants represent the true Colorado experience and embody downtown Denver’s genuine collaborative spirit,” Hermanson said.

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.

“It is a dream to be creating a brand new concept in such a spectacular space,” Seidel said. “We look forward to coming together with our neighbors at Union Station to make this a successful landmark for Downtown Denver and the entire state of Colorado.”

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.

“We are dedicated to creating community through food so there is no better spot for a second Denver restaurant than in the renovated Union Station,” said Musk .

“We are thrilled to be part of this unique project where everyone is so dedicated to supporting Colorado businesses.”

Snooze, an A.M. Eatery, will serve breakfast and lunch daily at Union Station. Denver entrepreneurs Jon and Adam Schlegel opened the first Snooze to rave reviews in the Ballpark neighborhood in 2006.

Snooze now features five bustling Colorado locations as well as a restaurant in San Diego.

On top of serving pancakes, craft benedicts and more, Snooze at Union Station will also add a take-away counter offering a menu like breakfast sandwiches, AM tacos, coffee, lattes and more.

“We are thrilled to take part in such a historic and special place in Denver,” Schlegel said.

“Doing this alongside such incredible restaurants is an honor and we can’t wait to bring our energy and breakfast to this station,” he continued “The take-away aspect is unique to Union Station, an opportunity to serve so many travellers and commuters who will pass through Union Station daily.”

Prior to leasing efforts at Union Station, Larimer Associates held a series of open focus groups to help determine the public’s hopes and desires for the landmark property.

“We consistently heard that Union Station is an iconic Colorado building with a rich history and that everyone wanted to see Colorado-based businesses in there,” said Pat McHenry, leasing and acquisition Partner at Larimer Associates.

“This really resonated with us and was a great guide as we sought the hippest concepts and most talented chefs to anchor Union Station. Luckily for us, these restaurateurs are as excited about being a part of Union Station as we are.”

When it opens in a little more than a year, Denver’s new Union Station will also feature several other locally-owned dining and retail outlets as well as 112 room luxury boutique hotel managed by Sage Hospitality.
