It’s a wonderful thing when established Denver chefs entice their talented friends to move to the Mile High City, adding out-of-town experience, skills, and palates to our evolving dining scene. That’s the heart of the story behind the collaboration of Lon Symensma (ChoLon) and Luke Bergman, who left Miami, after stints at the Modern and Aureole in New York City, to run the kitchen at Symensma’s five-month-old Stapleton restaurant, Concourse. The day-to-night New American eatery is ambitious, but Bergman’s ethereal pastas; expertly plancha-seared and grilled seafood, meats, and vegetables; and seductive sauces come together under Concourse’s wavelike walnut ceiling for a sophisticated dining experience we should all be grateful for, no matter which neighborhood we call home.
