Coffee Bar

A favorite of light rail travelers because of the convenient Arapahoe location, Chinook’s Coffee Bar baristas offer a full menu of coffees and teas, plus our in-house, freshly-baked goods in the morning. 

The coffee bar is uniquely integrated with our stunning bar space and terrace, providing an ideal place to enjoy your coffee and use our complimentary wireless network.


The Coffee Bar opens at 7:00am, Monday to Friday.


Espresso, Doppio, Cappuccino, Latte, Americano or regular coffee are available in three different sizes.


Chef Markus has crafted a menu inspired by classic European cuisine. In addition to our exquisite menu, we are excited to introduce the “Zermatt Room”. Dedicated to fondue and raclette, an interactive dining tradition born high in the Swiss Alps, it’s ideal for friends and family to gather and focus on relaxing, sociable eating and drinking.




Some of the Chef’s favorite dishes:

Day boat scallops mille-feuille a la plancher, braised fennel, oven dried tomato, vanilla infused champagne beurre blanc.

24oz Kurobuta pork T-bone, sour apple chutney, roasted fingerling potato, cider glaze, served in sizzling cast iron.

Roasted seasonal vegetable terrine, mustard gastrique, organic extra virgin olive oil, crispy artichoke chips, aged balsamic.


At the request of our loyal patrons, some signature menu items served at the former Cherry Creek location (Jaeger Schnitzel, Oven Roasted Duck, Sauteed Shrimp Cakes and Rote Gruetze) will be returning.


Executive Chef, Chinook Tavern

Some people spend their entire lives searching for their calling. But some lucky others, like Executive Chef Georg, find theirs at a very early age.

“From the age of five, I knew I wanted to be a chef,” said Markus. “I have always loved cooking and I love the energy of a kitchen. The busier the kitchen, the better.”

German-born Markus is a 35-year resident of Colorado who started his career at a very early age. He used to stand on a chair so he could reach the kitchen counter in order to help and learn from his mother and grandmother. During his high school years, his first job was as a busboy at the Northwoods Inn in southwest Denver. He continued working at restaurants and honing his skills at every possible position in the business.

In 1985, Markus decided to take his career to a new level. He left Colorado to work as an apprentice under legendary German chef Joerg Mueller at his namesake restaurant on the island of Sylt, Germany. At the time, the restaurant was rated among the top 25 restaurants in the world and recognized as both a 2 Michelin Star-rated restaurant and a Grand Cru Wine Award winner.

To round out his apprenticeship years, Chef Markus also worked at Restaurant Freihof, in Zwingenberg/Bergstrasse, Germany with Chef Piero Salotti from Sicily.

After two years in Germany, he returned to the U.S. and was accepted as a student at the prestigious and highly acclaimed Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. His externship was spent at the Rattlesnake Club at the Tivoli Denver. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in 1989, Markus returned to his adopted home of Colorado. He then went on to become Chef de Cuisine for Klaus Fricke at the famous Tea Room Alpenrose, one of Vail’s original mainstays. In 1995, he returned to Denver to open the Chinook Tavern in Cherry Creek North with younger brother Clemens.

The most important objective to Chef Markus is making sure his food is prepared to perfection each day. He enhances flavors using sensitive seasoning and only the freshest ingredients. Cooking and baking are passions for Markus, and he continues to be a diligent student of cooking by staying updated on new trends and cooking techniques. Drawing from his European training and adding his own creative touch, Chef Markus and his team created a new menu for Chinook inspired by classic European cuisine.

Chef Markus’ creativity also extends to his hobby of building and flying model airplanes. Markus and wife Andrea, who, naturally, met in a restaurant kitchen, have three sons and when not in a kitchen, love to hike, road bike and fly-fish.
