THE FRUIT OF OUR LABOR IS MEAT.
THE RIVER BEAR HIMSELF
Executive Chef Justin Brunson’s passion for quality ingredients and artfully designed cuisine stems from his agricultural roots earning him recognition as one of Denver’s most impressive and innovative chefs. Growing up in an Iowan farming family, Brunson learned the importance of carefully sourced ingredients and has taken his knowledge of the farming and agriculture industries into each of his concepts. Brunson’s family of restaurants that together make up Brunson & Co., highlight the best of heritage-raised meats, sustainable seafood and ingredients sourced f rom farms around Colorado.
River Bear is the next evolution of charcuterie skills that Brunson has been honing his entire life. Meat is his passion, and he aims to make it yours as well.
