ChoLon is a modern Asian-influence bistro located in Denver, Colorado’s lively lower downtown district. Chef Lon Symensma is making a name for himself as a graduate of Jean-Georges, Spice Market, and Budakkan. Not only are his meals beautifully eye-catching, his dishes also provide wildly creative twists on traditional Asian meals to keep your taste buds wanting more. Ricca Design Studios had the honor of working closely with Chef Lon to make his innovative dream restaurant come to life. To experience ChoLon is to see a kitchen in constant motion. Chef and guest interaction is encouraged by the open kitchen design. The glowing and ever-evolving dining experience creates an energetic atmosphere for Denver locals and visitors alike.
