About us

What's Open? Once you realize that Open is the name of the sandwich shop inside American Bonded, and once you try the sandwiches, you'll be checking all the time to see if Open is open. Jake Riederer and chef Jonathan Chavez solicited sandwich recipes from some of Denver's top chefs and put them all on the menu at once, chipping in a dollar of each sandwich sold to food-based nonprofit Project Angel Heart. So you can grab a chicken karaage sandwich by Jeff Osaka of Osaka Ramen and Sushi-Rama, a cochinita pibil torta from Dana Rodriguez of Super Mega Bien and Work & Class, a meatloaf-and-collard-green number from Tap & Burger's Cliff Blauvelt, or a chile relleno cemita from Chavez himself, among others. Hang out at American Bonded over drinks and sandwiches, or order for takeout or delivery. You'll feel good about it in more ways than one.
