Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill expands into Boulder on December 22

Mediterranean coast native Alon Mor's Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill first brought hummus and shwarma to Denver's fast-casual dining scene in 2007. Since then, a dozen more Garbanzo outposts have popped up in Denver and Colorado Springs.

And while there are plans to take the homegrown chain national, it's tapping into another Colorado market first: The thirteenth outpost will open at 1905 29th Street in Boulder this week.

A peek through the window of the spot on 29th Street, Boulder's bastion for fast-casual concepts, revealed a finished space, where diners move through a line selecting pita, plates piled with meats and accouterments, laffa (baked flour tortilla-like flatbread) or Mediterranean salads.

The crew is undergoing training over the next few days, and the restaurant will open with plenty of fanfare, including a tote giveaway for the first 100 customers and a prize wheel, on December 22.
