Back in February, we had the pleasure of visiting The Regional. The Regional is a LoHi restaurant that is famous for serving fantastic food sourced from local farms and ranches in Colorado. They also serve seafood sourced from various places in Massachusetts. This past spring they hosted a culinary event dedicated to the No Kid Hungry charity. Come check it out!
Chef and owner Kevin Grossi opened The Regional back in the summer of 2016. He sought to recreate many classic American dishes from all over the country using locally sourced food. He focuses particularly on comfort food. As he describes in an article with Eater Denver, “We’re not doing crazy things to our products,” Grossi said, “we’re bringing the down-home feeling down to Denver.”
However, after spending two years at their LoHi location in the Avanti F&B, The Regional will be moving to Fort Collins in the early fall. Grossi plans on deepening his regional dishes in the new location: “The Regional has always been about adding a local element to whatever food you consider ‘hometown’ cooking. That will never change. If anything, we’re just moving closer to where so much of it is already growing in our state.” Check out their new location at 130 South Mason Street!
No Kid Hungry Culinary Event
No Kid Hungry is an initiative that focuses on solving the issue of child hunger. They do this by hosting various culinary events across the country, and by granting money to other similar non-profits. Their culinary event at The Regional focused primarily on seafood: “Cape Cod oysters, mushroom hot dish from the north Midwest, Washington Coast Dungeness crab salad and Low Country hoppin’ John” were just a few of the dishes served at the event.
