Masterful Denver chef and restaurateur Justin Brunson‘s much-anticipated second location of Masterpiece Deli at the Wells Fargo Center, 1710 Sherman St., opened Monday to a rabid throng that you would swear had never seen a sandwich before.
Brunson and his business partner Stephen Allee opened the original deli in the Highland neighborhood, and searched for a sister location based on the popularity of the small first store.
The new Uptown space has triple the square footage of the original store, with an additional 25 outdoor seats in a heated covered patio.
Brunson has also earned much acclaim for his fabulous Old Major restaurant (also in the Highland) and as co-founder of the Denver Bacon Company.
The new Masterpiece location has a fully equipped gas kitchen with ovens and smokers to create brisket, corned beef, pastrami, roast beef and pork shoulder. A new addition is a case with products available to take and go such as pre-made sandwiches and salads, cured and smoked deli meats and pastries.
Hours are 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, go to www.masterpiecedeli.com or call 303-561-3354.
