At ChoLon, chef/owner Lon Symensma has been serving handmade French onion soup dumplings, a European embellishment on the Shanghai specialty, since the restaurant opened in 2010. And just last week, he added two other variations on xiao long bao at the newly reopened Cho77.

If you work or live in downtown Denver, you already know that when the craving for dumplings or noodle bowls or other Asian fare strikes, there are only a few non-chain dining options within walking distance. That status quo ended last week, when Cho77, chef Lon Symensma’s casual southeast Asian street food concept (formerly located on South Broadway), re-opened in its new home on the 16th Street Mall near Blake Street.

Cho77, the popular Asian street food restaurant that started on South Broadway, is poised to open the doors of its new LoDo location on Monday, January 28, 2019.
Chef Lon Symensma made the choice to move his casual concept to the SugarCube Building at 1555 Blake Street to put the restaurant in closer proximity to its sisters ChoLonand LeRoux — the latest of Denver’s new French options just opened last month. Back on South Broadway, the space that housed Cho77 is now occupied by another of Symensma’s eateries, BorraCho Tacos, which serves street tacos and more Mexican fare and cocktails.

Times are changing on 16th Street, where, by the end of the year, a pair of decades-old neighborhood restaurants had closed and a pan-European destination opened up, looking more Parisian jewel box than Denver’s downtown Mall.
