Mondo Market

Mondo Market is steadily carving out spots in food halls around town (the Source in 2013, Stanley Marketplace in 2017), bringing them its blend of sit-down dining, high-end takeout and fancy groceries. That old adage about how you should never go food shopping while you're hungry? Mondo has taken it to heart, saving shoppers from impulse purchases by providing them with cheese and salumi boards (or cones, if they don't have to time to sit down); a spread of sandwiches that includes such ingredients as brown butter aioli, housemade gyros and giardiniera; and build-your-own pasta bowls. The Aurora location has one distinct advantage over the Denver shop: a liquor license, so you can quench your thirst with beer, wine or a cocktail while you shop for cocktail onions.
