The Regional taps into our diverse national palate by presenting hometown sensibilities with a fresh, new look. From small town Blue Plates and Friday night fish fries, to Low Country vittles and uptown icons, it is our goal to bring a bit of where you call home here to the Denver dining scene.
Whether you are diving into a bowl of clam chowder from Newport, or crushing a spicy fried chicken sandwich from Nashville, Chef/Owner Kevin Grossi’s menu has been crafted to take you on a culinary road trip focusing on the traditional staples that have come to define food, culture and community for people across America. Sourcing from Colorado farms and ranches, The Regional uses the very best ingredients, to be tasted in every bite.
The Regional is a gathering place where together guests are able to share food traditions while exploring new ones as well. A place where everyone can feel at home.
Fly solo, or bring the whole crew, and feel the local love.

Chef de trailor/owner
A true Midwestern boy, Kevin is a Michigander who knew his path from an early age. He wasted no time starting a cooking career by enrolling in the Schoolcraft College culinary program in Livonia, Mi. post high school graduation. From there the quest to eat, learn and work under amazing chefs like Brain Polcyn and Joseph Decker in order to grow became an addiction.
With time in Boston, San Diego and Vail , Kevin finally settled in Denver where he pulled cooking stints at Tamayo, Zengo, The Coral Room, Parisi’s, Jax Fish House and Lola. His hard work, diligent effort and knack for putting bold flavors together on a plate for adoring guests made him the perfect chef to open Jax Fish House in Fort Collins, Co. There he rekindled his relationship with farmers of all types, took the town by storm with his fish to farm to table approach and established Jax as a powerhouse in the northern Colorado community.
With a move back down to Denver, a return to Lola as the head chef, was something that was always on his mind. Being named the new chef there he was able to take Lola to amazing new places with his fresh ideas, relentless pursuit of the local bounty and unique perspective on Mexican Fish House fare.
Being with the Big Red F group for 6 years, Kevin took the bold move to open his own concept, The Regional. A true taste of home, by recreating American hometown cuisine. Bringing the soul and comfort back to the great city of Denver.
When not in the kitchen Kevin spends his time maintaining relationships with farmers in Fort Collins and across the front range, shredding in snowcapped mountains, ripping some single tracks on his mountain bike and tending to his garden.
