Campobaja, Mexico City restaurant, coming to Denver this summer

If you can’t make it to Mexico City’s hip Roma neighborhood over the next couple of months for dinner, you might try heading to Denver’s RiNo instead.

From June 14 to Aug. 14, Campobaja, a seafood restaurant based in Mexico’s capital, will open an American outpost at Zeppelin Station. It’s part of the food hall’s Made in a City pop-up. Earlier this year, a restaurant and artists from Reykjavik, Iceland, took over part of the food and retail space.

At Made in Mexico City, Campobaja chef Alejandro Zarate will make Denverites tacos and tostadas with octopus, shrimp aguachile, scallops and some meat and vegetable options. Joining the restaurant for the summer is Licorería Limantour, named the best bar in Latin America by the World’s 50 Best list.

Limantour is making a special cocktail menu for the occasion and also coming to Denver for a bar takeover July 12-14. There are more things Made in Mexico City — knitwear, graphic tees, home goods — and some things made in Colorado, like Fortuna chocolate, coming along, too.

The summer-long event kicks off June 15 from 7 p.m. to midnight with a free-to-attend launch party including mezcal and tequila tastings.
