The thing about dining options in the Golden Triangle is that there are very few.

There are several coffee shops, a bunch of places to get sandwiches, soups or salads, and Torchy’s Tacos. Anyone who works in the area (that’s me) and is averse to packing a lunch (that’s also me) will tell you that’s not enough variety.

And so such a person (me) is probably not qualified to calmly and objectively tell you about Broadway Market, which opens Friday in the old Tony’s Market space at 950 Broadway, just across the Golden Triangle border in Capitol Hill. Such a person (again, me) could try, though. Here is a passion-free list of things inside Broadway Market:

  • Biju’s Little Curry Shop
  • Maria Empanada
  • Miette et Chocolat
  • Misaki on Broadway
  • Mondo Mini
  • Mother Tongue
  • Pizzeria Coperta
  • Royal Rooster
  • Wonder

Listed another way:

  • Indian food
  • Argentinean food
  • Chocolate
  • Sushi
  • Sandwiches*, salads, soups, cheese and charcuterie boards
  • Ottoman-inspired street food
  • Roman pizza
  • Burgers and chicken sandwiches*
  • Juice

*I suppose you can’t not have sandwiches.

Broadway Market also has a bar with strong cocktail menu, as well as a self-serve beer wall.

If some of those names look familiar, it’s because you’ve seen many of them around Denver before. Maria Empanada, of course, is slowly taking over the entire city. Biju’s has become a Five Points favorite and also has an outpost on Tennyson Street. Mondo Market, Miette et Chocolat and Misaki can both be found at Stanley Marketplace. Pizzeria Coperta is a spinoff of Coperta in Uptown.

Royal Rooster is a new concept, but the man behind it is familiar. The sandwich shop is headed up by chef Justin Brunson, who’s also responsible for  Old Major, Masterpiece Delicatessen and Culture Meat & Cheese. Wonder is something of the outside, coming from Boulder.

Broadway Market is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. (just for juice) to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Take a look around:
