When & Where
Flow Restaurant Group
Founded in 2010 by Lon Symensma, Jim Deters, and Alicia Deters the Denver-based company delivers chef-driven restaurants to the Colorado market. Flow Restaurant Group restaurants share common cornerstones: seasonal menus that celebrate local farms and purveyors; artisanal wines; craft beer; handcrafted cocktails; striking interiors and sustainable business practices. Flow Restaurant Group takes its name from the Hungarian philosopher, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, best known as the architect of the notion of “flow”, the mental state of operation in which a person in an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity.
ChoLon, which translates to "big market”, is named after the largest Chinese-influenced market in Saigon, Vietnam. Chef Lon Symensma brings to life his extensive culinary travels throughout South East Asia, in his Denver restaurant, with a menu featuring inspired interpretations of traditional dishes found across the continenent. Presentations are ideal for sharing. From dim sum or "small bites" to large family style plates, authentic flavors get a unique twist to please modern tastes. The bar and lounge serves handcrafted, artisanal cocktails developed to enhance Symensma’s creations. The venue is also ideal for business meetings and presentations and features a large projection screen in the lounge area. In addition to lunch and dinner service, ChoLon offers an all day menu which may be enjoyed in the lounge.
