Located in Denver’s Historic Union Station, Ultreia is the latest from Crafted Concepts, the group behind four award-winning Denver restaurants, Rioja, Stoic & Genuine, Euclid Hall and Bistro Vendôme.
James Beard Best Chef Southwest Jennifer Jasinski, along with business partner Beth Gruitch opened Ultreia in the building’s Great Hall based on the shared plate pintxos (pronounced peen chos) and tapas of the Iberian peninsula countries of Spain and Portugal.
The word Ultreia has its roots in Latin, loosely translates to “onward” and refers to the words of encouragement shouted to pilgrims on their Camino de Santiago – a 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. It seemed a fitting name for a restaurant located in a transit hub.
