EURO BISTRO + VODKA BAR
Known for the largest selection of vodkas in Denver, Red Square couples a fun and social bar scene with a European-inspired dining experience that blends new and old flavors in a vibrant and romantic atmosphere. Red Square European Bistro opened in 2003 in the vibrant open-air, mixed-use shopping destination, Writer Square. Writer Square is just off 16th Street Mall and is in close proximity to Larimer Square and the Theater District, making it a perfect destination for a night out. Red Square welcomed executive Chef Brandon Becker to the family in 2015. He joined long time restaurant and bar staff Max, Irena, Joe and Pasha.
Born in Green Bay Wisconsin Becker first found his way to culinary arts during high school. His passion quickly grew and he moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota to attend the Art Institute International Minnesota.
Becker has had the opportunity to work with many top chefs including Chef Seth Bixby Daugherty (Food and Wine best chef, 2005). He has worked in top restaurants around the country including, Eleven Madison Park in New York, The French Laundry in California and Cosmos in Minnesota. Becker has grown his career through hard work, intense passion and great mentors working his way up from dishwasher to executive chef.
Today Becker’s passion for ingredients and flavor can be seen in all of his dishes where he layers flavors in surprising and pleasing ways that entice you to savor every bite.
