For Bin 707 Executive Chef Josh Niernberg, his sources are local first, Colorado second, and domestic third. Peppers that populate his Sriracha come from local Okagawa Farms, the fruits from nearby Palisades, the meats come from Roan Creek or alternatively from Colorado, and most anything else he will manage to get domestically. That includes the local beer, wine, and ciders.

My party and I, all critics, unanimously enjoyed the freshness, artful presentation, and delicious combinations we experienced at Bin 707 Foodbar located in downtown Grand Junction. The hip, trendy casual atmosphere is nicely serviced – efficient and polished, but not formal. Bin 707 Foodbar features both high-end cuisine alongside the usual burger and hand-cut fries. Seating is first come, first served.

The menu offering definitely included some items I did not expect such as Beet Ice Cream and Cured Skuna Bay Salmon with Crispy Shallots. The hand-crafted cocktails are made with locally distilled spirits while local wines are presented in polished crystal. The cheese and charcuterie plates are delicious introductions to Western Colorado flavors with one of my cohorts exclaiming the liver pate to be “the best he’d ever tasted!” Similar comments accompanied the Colorado Rosen Lamb and Colorado Pork Tenderloin. And leave room for the crack pie dessert.
