Troy Guard, owner of Los Chingones and more Denver restaurants, plans a Tech Center food hall

When a Denver chef who already owns eight restaurants decides to open a food hall in town, you can imagine what concepts might make it into the space.

But Troy Guard, who announced this week that he’s working on a yet-to-be-named, 10-stall food hall at the Denver Tech Center, says he’s searching for fresh talent for this latest project.

It’s tentatively scheduled for a summer 2020 opening, Eater reported on Thursday.

Guard is the chef behind Denver restaurants Tag, Tag Burger Bar, Hashtag, FnG, Bubu, Los Chingones, Mister Tuna and Guard and Grace. Over the past decade, he has both set and capitalized on food trends in Denver, serving everything from European shared plates to tacos and steak. Now, he’s adding a food hall to the mix.
