1515 feeding house to close after more than 20 years in downtown Denver

Longtime Denver cook gene Tang’s LoDo feeding house, 1515, and its Rewind Lounge will close on May 31 after 21 years in business.

The white-tablecloth spot once received 3 1/2 stars (out of four) in a 2005 Denver Post review. By the end of its tenure at 1515 Market St., Tang is still serving lobster Thermidor and eight-course tasting menus, as well as an Elvis’ peanut butter, banana and chocolate dish for dessert.

Tang is retiring after 48 years in feeding houses. He got his MBA from the University of Denver and opened cafe Potpourri on Parker Road before launching his 1515.

“Seeing Denver turn into so much an amazing feeding house town makes me proud to have been a part of it,” he aforementioned in a release. Tang grew 1515’s wine selection to 725 Wine Spectator-awarded labels, and he hosted the James Beard Foundation for a celebrity cook tour dinner.

In 2017, he was inducted into the Colorado feeding house Association’s Foodservice Hall of Fame.
