The Regional in the Press


the regional in the westword

Chef/owner Kevin Grossi (late of Lola) opened the Regional in summer 2016 in Avanti Food & Beverage. The name is deceptively simple and straightforward: Grossi re-creates American classics from regions throughout the United States.


First Look: Chef Kevin Grossi Opens The Regional

After returning from a three-week and 5,200-mile road trip, chef Kevin Grossi is ready to bring to Denver his take on American comfort food with the opening Tuesday of The Regional.


The Regional to Open at Avanti July 19

Avanti Food & Beverage (3200 Pecos Street; 720.269.4778) is unveiling a brand new food concept on Tuesday, July 19. Chef and Owner Kevin Grossi (former executive chef for Lola Mexican Fish House) is excited to announce The Regional—an eclectic new hub to dine and enjoy all that the Avanti space has to offer.


More than an adult food court, everybody wins with restaurant incubator concept at Avanti

Avanti Food and Beverage is many things. It is, as it’s been billed since its opening in July 2015, a restaurant incubator, a giant warehouse of sorts that nurtures and grows cool food concepts.


Chef Kevin Grossi Moves From Lola to Open The Regional

After six years of work with the Big Red F Group, some at Jax in Fort Collins and some at Lola in LoHi, chef Kevin Grossi has left to open his own restaurant. The Regional will open just blocks away from Lola in July.



When Avanti opened last year, we knew that the restaurants would come and go as time progressed. Farmer Girl left, making room for Bamboo Sushi and, most recently, Poco Torteria made its departure to be replaced by chef Kevin Grossi’s concept—The Regional.
