Coming soon to 31st and Larimer streets: Rye Society contemporary Jewish deli.
Jerrod Rosen, formerly of Per Se, Tabla and Colt & Gray, is building the deli in the space that previously housed Hutch & Spoon with help from chef Ryan Leinonen, also of Colt & Gray. It’s slated to open in the first quarter of 2018.
Rosen, a fourth-generation Coloradan raised in Boulder, has deep family roots in Denver. In the 1960s, his maternal grandfather owned Oasis Drive-In at Colfax Avenue and Williams Street. His father’s parents ran Rosen’s Grocery and his great-grandmother owned Rosen’s Kosher Café.
He’ll keep some of that family tradition alive at Rye Society, where rye bread, condiments, butter, cream cheese and soups will all be made in-house daily and the pastrami will be flown in from Carnegie Deli in New York City. Rye Society will also offer salads, grain bowls, breakfast sandwiches, egg bowls, granola, oatmeal and coffee.
