Platte Street has, in recent years, become one of the hottest strips in Denver. From the opening of new bars and breweries to shared workspaces, the construction is seemingly endless. And now, it will gain yet another destination with the upcoming opening of Maria Empenada’s fourth location
Founder and Argentine native Lorena Cantarovici opened the bakery with her business partner and husband in 2011. The Argentinian eatery which began in an unassuming bakery in Lakewood has since grown to multiple locations across Denver.
“We are very careful and strategic about our growth so we have to be extremely selective on where we locate our restaurants. When we understood what was happening on Platte Street we knew we had to be part of it,” explained Cantarovici. “We are excited to bring our brand to the vibrant neighborhoods of Platte Street, LoHi and Union Station — areas that are clamoring for something unique and easy to eat.”
The new Maria Empanada will be located at 1700 Platte Street in a new shared office building. Like its other locations, it will serve Argentinian empanadas and other pastries for breakfast, lunch and dinner in addition to an espresso bar and wine options.
“We are thrilled to add Maria Empanada to our mix of best-in-class tenants at Riverview at 1700 Platte. Maria Empanada, as a trusted local restaurant and a proven brand, will not only be an amenity to the employees in our building, but also to the surrounding office and residential neighborhoods,” said Ann Sperling, Senior Director with Trammell Crow Company.
Platte Street is rapidly becoming one of Denver’s hottest spots and, and as one of the Nation’s Breakout Brands of 2018, Maria Empanada will be a welcome addition to the new space.
The team behind these new additions has yet to announce an opening date for Maria Empenada’s Platte Street location, stay tuned with us for all upcoming information.
