Sage Restaurant Group is set to hire a Food Runner for Urban Farmer Denver, located in Denver’s lower Downtown neighborhood at 17th and Wazee, adjacent to The Oxford Hotel!
Urban Farmer Denver’s seasonally driven menu will highlight nose-to-tail cuts of naturally raised meat, carefully curated by Executive Chef Chris Starkus, who was previously the Chef de Cuisine of Urban Farmer Portland, and Culinary Director of the Urban Farmer brand, Matt Christianson. The restaurant focuses on in-house whole animal butchering and ways to use the entire animal throughout the menu. A communal charcuterie station offers guests an interactive and engaging space in which to ‘meet their meat.’
Additionally, diners will find a roaming cheese cart displaying a variety of high pedigree local cheeses. Post supper sweets will be made in-house and include a variety of baked goods and selection of rotating ice creams and sorbets. The restaurant’s beverage program complements the fresh and seasonal menu with early American inspired cocktails made with Colorado spirits, alongside local Denver craft beers and a curated wine list.
Sage Restaurant Group’s mission is to create the best restaurants in the world, we focus on building independent restaurants and lounges adjacent to our hotels in prime locations. We connect with the people that live and work in the communities we serve by providing innovative, playful, locally focused food and beverage experiences.
