Meow Wolf has announced more than a dozen partnering local food vendors for Denver’s Convergence Station ahead of its opening on Sept. 17.
The interactive art exhibit’s cafe will sell tacos, poke, coffee, desserts and more, with an emphasis on diversity of offerings and local ownership, according to a press release.
“The theme of Convergence Station as an interplanetary melting pot is inspired by the beautifully diverse melding of cultures of Sun Valley, where we’re located,” Brian Loo, Meow Wolf’s senior director of operations development, said in the release. “We called upon local restaurateurs, craft breweries, coffee roasters and bakeries to collaborate on our menu. The results are exponentially tasty with the vast majority of our offerings made right here in Colorado.”
Here are the 13 food and drink brands that will be offered:
Adobo: “Denver Chef Blaine Baggao’s incredible, award-winning Latin-Asian food highlights his Filipino and New Mexican heritage, and combines flavors and traditions of the two cuisines harmoniously.”
