Despite the challenges presented by doing business during a pandemic, restaurants continue to open (and reopen) in metro Denver.
Gourmet Kitchen Catering has been doing business since 2002 in Broomfield, but this summer has been a bad one for caterers because of restrictions on public gatherings. So chef/owner Madhoo Seth added a restaurant to the spacious property at 1200 Miramonte Street: Roots by Gourmet Kitchen is now open and serving cuisine with international flair and elements of Seth's Indian heritage. The restaurant offers pre-paid reservations to minimize interactions at the restaurant, as well as plenty of outdoor and socially distanced indoor seating. Roots is open for dinner Wednesday through Saturday, and for brunch from 9:30 to 1:30 on Saturdays and Sundays. Call 720-279-0570 or visit the restaurant's website for details and reservations.
