Chef Bo Porytko opening Molotov Kitschen + Cocktails on Jan. 18


Chef Bo Porytko celebrated his birthday with a soft opening for his new Eastern European spot on Wednesday. But Molotov Kitschen + Cocktails, which opens to the public on Jan. 18 — and is one of Denver’s most anticipated restaurants of 2023 — feels more like a gift to diners.

An ode to Porytko’s Ukrainian heritage, the cozy, intimate eatery sucks you in from the chaos of East Colfax Avenue and makes you feel like you’re stepping into your Baba’s kitchen. The space puts the kitschy in Kitschen, as well, with plentiful cuckoo clocks and a wall decorated to look like a vinok, a traditional Ukrainian flower crown that has since become a symbol of peace during the war in Ukraine.

Porytko’s rustic cooking is why Denver diners have always been drawn to his food, first at Rebel Restaurant and then at Misfit Snack Bar. And you should expect nothing less of Molotov’s menu, which is made up of family-style meals.
