There — or "there..." — opened yesterday on the ground floor of the Lumina apartment building at West 33rd Avenue and Navajo Street, where it serves a surprisingly deep menu of shared plates, bowls, tostadas, lettuce wraps, skewers and steamed buns. With eighteen different proteins on the dinner slate, plus a few veggie offerings, a meal here offers a chance to choose your own adventure and hoard small bites for yourself while indulging in bigger platters — like whole fried fish, kobe beef filets or bowls of mussels — with friends.

Although the flavors cover a broad range and aren't specifically Asian, chopsticks are the best bet for stealing bites while your dining companions sip big cocktails, Telluride brews or wines by the glass. For the complete story of There and its roots in Telluride, check out our preview from May 5. Here's a look at some of the food and drink on the opening menu.
