Variety is the name of the game at Stella's on 16th, which opens tomorrow (January 27) at 1550 Wewatta Street behind Union Station. The combination market, deli, bakery and restaurant is built to cater to the business crowd downtown as well as to residents of the many new condos and apartments in the neighborhood. Stock up on home-cooking supplies, grab breakfast or lunch on the run, or linger over sandwiches, entrees and dessert in the triangular dining room.

Executive chef Thach Tran and his team turn out the likes of housemade pastrami; banh mi sandwiches stuffed with lemongrass pork; and green curry mussels for dinner, while breakfast ranges from a light and healthy bruléed grapefruit to decadent French toast and homey pancakes.

For more photos of pastries and provisions, see our complete Stella's on 16th slideshow.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
