Troy Guard opened the subterranean bubu in the summer of 2014 in the former home of TAG|Raw Bar on a stretch of Larimer Square known for high-end dining, not fast food. When he opened bubu Lowry in winter 2015 in Lowry’s Hangar 2 development, he tweaked the format, dropping the fast-casual setup in favor of table service and a full dinner menu. At lunch, you can still build your own bowl from a list that mixes Pacific Rim flavors with a few Southwestern accents, or choose from a handful of house combos off a menu packed with tempting options. Guard's signature Hawaii Five-O, an homage to his home state, with hearts of palm, fennel, shiitakes and a choice of protein (chicken, steak, shrimp, raw tuna, salmon or tofu), is typical of the options. At dinner, look for more of the fusion flavors for which Guard is known in dishes such as corned-beef buns with pickled shallots and cabbage, crispy rice with spicy tuna, and vegetable ramen loaded with wok-charred vegetables.
