Culinary powerhouse Frank Bonanno is at it again. His forthcoming Milk Market, set to open this May inside downtown’s Dairy Block, just announced what’s going inside the ambitious marketplace. Below you’ll find the descriptions, provided by the Bonanno team, and it’s looking stacked. From an exclusive beer hall with taproom only brews to fresh seafood, a butcher shop, gelato, the resurrection of Lou’s and more — the lineup is the most extensive we’ve seen from any food hall thus far.
Stranded Pilgrim: A local beer lover’s dream, Stranded Pilgrim offers guests an exclusive all-Colorado beer list of brews previously only available at brewery’s taprooms.
Albina by the Sea: A tribute to Frank’s grandmother who’s cooking inspired him as a child, Albina by the Sea will offer seafood favorites along with fresh fish to create your own seafood feast at home.
Ruth’s Butchery: A one-stop-shop for the best Colorado-raised meats, Ruth’s Butchery is a tribute to Jacqueline’s grandmother who famously made the best hamburger around.
