Il Posto offers a truly cosmopolitan experience in a vibrant, hip space. Glance into the open air kitchen as Milanese chef/owner Andrea Frizzi prepares dishes inspired from Northern Italy and the resident sommelier ensures the perfect compliment for your meal. The ever-changing menu features local organic produce and meats with seafood flown in daily.


In 1993 Andrea moved to the United States and accepted a position as the Executive Chef for Bice Restaurant in Washington, D.C. “ When I left Italy it was the first time I saw my father cry.” he says. In 1994 Williams Sonoma named him one of the new rising best chefs in the USA for its Taste of Home publication. He was also named best new young chef in Washington, D.C. by Dining Digest.

Over the course of 12 years he has helped open over 20 new restaurants. In 1997 he stopped in Denver to help open Cucina Colore. “I loved Denver. I noticed that Denver was on the verge of getting really good food.  I came back a few years later to help open Via.”

On Opening Il Posto: The day I gave notice at Via, a friend of mine drove me by the space on 17th Avenue that is now Il Posto. I opened Il Posto using my credit cards. When you believe in something you have to go for broke. The universe will do everything it can to give you your dream as long as you jump in with both feet. You must have faith.  You must be honest, keep your word, treat people right and be passionate about your work.
