When it comes to Instagram feeds, some Denver chefs are making us want to run to their restaurants and try their latest creation. Other are just getting us generally hungry through their enticing, interesting, well-curated photo selections from meals they experience or food travel adventures.

Gregory Gourdet, Departure Denver @gg30000

Top Chef finalist Gregory Gourdet splits his time between Denver and Portland, home to his flagship Departure. His feed is full of his food, his travels, and his marathon training adventures.

Hosea Rosenberg is another Top Chef alum and the winner of the popular show 2009. He now calls Boulder home, where he opened Blackbelly, a restaurant and butchery that focuses on local and seasonal ingredients. He posts snippets of his life, but mostly photos of bright vegetables and hearty meats.

Josh Pollak, Rosenberg’s Bagels & Delicatessen @thebageldude

The self-proclaimed bagel dude came onto the scene in Denver in 2014 with quite the bang when he opened the long-awaited Rosenberg’s Deli. He hasn’t slowed down since and his photos show it. His feed is a mix of comedy, family, and of course, bagels.

Justin Brunson, Old Major, Masterpiece Deli @justinbrunson

Chef Justin Brunson has been busy the past few years. He’s opened several restaurants and has kept his followers in the know along the way. He posts about new dishes, new menus, and all.the.meat.

Nadine Donovan, Steuben’s @sweetondnvr

Pastry queen Nadine Donovan seems to be everywhere these days. She is the sweet genius behind the desserts at Steuben’s, Ace, and Vesta and her dishes are as seasonal as they are whimsical. She kindly posts her creations to Instagram.

Steve Redzikowski, Acorn - Oak at Fourteenth - Brider @steverino1234

Chef Steve Redzikowski’s feed is just straight up food porn as much as he may shun the term . He posts almost exclusively photos of his food—from the elusive soft pretzels at OAK to the creative entrées at Acorn, and then the desserts from both locations.
