Kaya Kitchen opens in Avanti; Your Pie fi­nally comes to Colorado

The Denver Post - - FEATURES - By Allyson Reedy New street-food con­cept opens at Avanti Cus­tom­iz­a­ble pizza joint Your Pie is here He­len H.

Why would any­one name a restau­rant af­ter co­conut jam, you might ask? Be­cause co­conut jam is de­li­cious (said by some­one who likes nei­ther co­conuts nor jam) and chef Lon Sy­mensma (of ChoLon, Cho77, Con­course) makes the most fan­tas­tic kaya toast with poached eggs dip.

Yes, it sounds strange, but do your­self a fa­vor and try it — and the rest of Kaya Kitchen’s south­east Asian street food menu — the next time you’re at Avanti. Kaya Kitchen opened July 26. 3200 Pe­cos St., Den­ver (Avanti Food and Bev­er­age), 720-2694778; avan­tifandb.com

If you’ve been hold­ing your breath in anx­ious an­tic­i­pa­tion of when Your Pie would fi­nally (fi­nally!) come to Colorado, you’re about to breathe easy. The fast-ca­sual pizze­ria opened its first Colorado lo­ca­tion last week. All you have to do is get your­self to Thorn­ton and it will be buildy­our-own, brick-oven piz­zas ga­lore. 14342 Lin­coln

The Post Brew­ing is head­ing to Boul­der in for­mer Shine spot; Shine mov­ing east

Con­grat­u­la­tions, Boul­der. Some fine fried chicken is com­ing your way.

The Post Brew­ing Com­pany, known equally well for its fried fowl as for its Great Amer­i­can Beer Fes­ti­val medal-win­ning beers, is open­ing a sec­ond lo­ca­tion in Boul­der this fall, ac­cord­ing to a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the restau­rant. (The restau­rant also runs The Post Chicken & Beer out­posts in Den­ver and Long­mont.)

It will take over Shine Restau­rant & Gath­er­ing Place’s spot on 13th Street. Shine is mov­ing east to 2480 Canyon Blvd.

With a full brew­ery and event space, The Post Boul­der will have plenty of room to sling chicken and beer to Boul­der car­ni­vores. Oh you lucky car­ni­vores, you.

The Way Back is mov­ing! Haven’t heard of or been to The Way Back? Well, that might be why it’s mov­ing.

The restau­rant, which is owned by the team be­hind Amer­i­can Grind and the soon-to-open Way­ward in the for­mer Zengo spot, is re­ally great, but it’s also re­ally un­der the radar with its in­con­spic­u­ous spot on 38th Av­enue.

So when the chance to move to a space on Ten­nyson Street with a larger kitchen and in­creased foot traf­fic pre­sented it­self, own­ers Chad Michael Ge­orge, Kade Gia­n­inetti and Jared Schwartz de­cided to move The Way Back way for­ward. (Right now, they’re cook­ing out of Amer­i­can Grind’s for­mer food truck. No, re­ally.)

“The kitchen will be indoors, which is an im­prove­ment,” Gia­n­inetti said of the new spot. “We felt that mov­ing to Ten­nyson and hav­ing the chance to be in the heart of the com­mu­nity — we jumped on that.”

The Way Back will host a fi­nal hur­rah Taco Party on Sun­day from 2 to 6 p.m. be­fore clos­ing down and prep­ping for the move. Gia­n­inetti said he ex­pects to re­open on Ten­nyson in early 2018, but don’t worry, no one will be out of a job. The team is mov­ing ev­ery­one over to help open its veg­gie-cen­tric sis­ter restau­rant, Way­ward, in Au­gust.
