Justin Brunson, exec chef of Old Major and Masterpiece Deli, which now has two Denver locations, is surging ahead with several new projects this year. Along with Culture Meat & Cheese, a retail shop and restaurant opening in RiNo's forthcoming Central Market, he's also gearing up to unveil Masterpiece Kitchen, a "grown-up Masterpiece Deli," says Brunson, that's slated to open in the Hangar 2 development on March 7. But unlike Masterpiece Deli, Masterpiece Kitchen, a partnership between Brunson and Larimer Associates, the real estate development company that transformed the former Lowry Air Force Base into a lively neighborhood hub, is a full-service upscale American grill/sandwich-focused concept that's poised to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. "Masterpiece Kitchen is the vision we always had for Masterpiece Deli, but until now, we didn't have the space to make that vision a reality," notes Brunson, adding that the 110-seat, 2,600-sq.-ft. space plans to offer classics from Masterpiece Deli along with several new dishes. The kitchen will be quarterbacked by chef de cuisine Ben Shapiro, who started as a cook at Masterpiece Deli and worked his way up the ladder.
