Denver's food/drink/bar scene has been changing and progressing over the last few decades, and the newest form of dining can be found in a style that has been adopted by Avanti - The Collective Eatery. We all know that one of the latest fads in food dining has been the rise in food trucks. Anytime you find yourself downtown, and a particular sporting/music event, or some other festival, food trucks will usually be seen setting up shop close by. The ease of buying and eating food on the go has been more prevalent in recent times. With changing lifestyles of individuals in our society, it seems like we have less and less time for a "formal" meal 3x a day, and having the opportunity to grab a quick bite on the go is very attractive.
Another thing to note it that if you see one food truck, it is usually not alone. It is very common to see 2+ food trucks at any given time/place if there is an event happening. The food trucks will create synergy working together as more hungry customers will be drawn to the smells and sites. Two men by the names of Patrick O'Neill and Rob Hahn decided to take this idea to the next level. They wanted to create an single area that customers could dine on different styles of food, have some wine, beer or a cocktail and socialize in common areas. With this idea Avanti was established and opened last July. It is located in the heart of Lohi at 3200 Pecos St.
This photo shows what the location looked like just prior to the purchase. A lot of work was required to make it into the building that stands today!
After some construction on the inside - the building was starting to take shape.
Once the building was complete, it opened in July of 2015. The final product is much different from the original, and for the better. There are Seven restaurant spots available in the building as well as 2 bars, a rooftop deck with 2 areas, and a common are inside on the lower level. Currently the Seven restaurants lease out their individual space which is actually a storage shipping container located within the building. The Seven current restaraunts are;
Brava - Pizzeria
Bixo - Mexiterranean bites
The Regional - American Hometown Food
Customers walk up to the window, similar to a food truck and order. Once the food is ready (in about 5 min) you have your option to sit at your own table, or mingle with some of the other patrons.
I stopped by Avanti for the first time recently and I was very impressed! The location is amazing, and the food was great. I had to try the Pizza from Brava and the Shawarma. Both were excellent! If you go, don't forget to grab a drink and enjoy the view!

Mortgage interest rate decreases… what does it mean for 2019?
"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
