Here's a first, rather abstract look inside The Populist, a restaurant from Jonathan Power and Noah Price — the guys behind Denver's much-adored Crema Coffee House. As first reported by Cafe Society back in April, The Populist will open in the former Garden Spot Cafe space at 3163 Larimer St., just three blocks up from Crema. Power, the force behind the success of Crema's kitchen, has earned a loyal breakfast and lunch following for a small menu that features eating pleasures like sweet potato waffles, quiche and pork belly bahn mi sandwiches. His menu at The Populist will focus on small plates, allowing guests to order multiple items for leisurely, community-oriented meals — and better yet, the menu will be affordable. "The idea is to go in and try a bunch of stuff without breaking the bank," Price says, sharing that the menu will range with plates that cost a couple dollars, to more entree-driven dishes like a whole trout for $20. Price and Power are aiming for a September 1st opening, and when they do open, hours will be 5 p.m. - close, Wednesday-Saturday.
