Humboldt Kitchen + Bar in Denver is closing after 10 years

Humboldt Kitchen + Bar’s 10-year run is coming to an end. The neighborhood eatery, located at 1700 Humboldt St., plans to close in early September, according to a notice on its website.

“After negotiation, the restaurant owners and landlord were unable to settle on lease extension terms that were acceptable and sustainable for the future of the business,” the announcement reads. “Additional information regarding the restaurantโ€™s closing schedule and activities will be announced on our website once available.โ€

Concept Restaurants, which owns Humboldt and eight other restaurants (including Stout Street Social in Denver, and a few hotels), opened Humboldt in 2013. The New American restaurant is popular for its farm-to-table and fish-centric menu filled with oysters, craft beer and wine. It is also known for its award-winning hamburger.

“…All current employees of Humboldt Kitchen + Bar have been offered opportunities for transfer to affiliated properties in Denver, Golden and Boulder that operate under the Concept Restaurants, Inc. umbrella,” the announcement continued.

Concept Restaurants, created by well-known Colorado restaurateur Frank Day, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The Denver Post will update this story if it does.
