BIN 707 FOODBAR
WE AIM TO PLEASE
Every item on Bin 707 Foodbar's menu has a story. There is a purpose behind everything we do, whether it's where we source our Colorado lamb or why we top our grapefruit curd with a beet merengue. With a vast knowledge of classic recipes, Bin 707 Foodbar is never reluctant to create a dish that has hinted of the classic but ultimately reinvents the idea. We aim to provide a unique, full-service dining experience that is both casual and welcoming, while being inventive and ahead of trends. Eating at Bin 707 Foodbar is always an adventure, although no matter how adventurous the menu may get, the Bin Burger served with beehive white cheddar and truffle fries will never fall out of fashion.
WE KNOW OUR FOOD
Grand Junction is in the heart of Colorado's Grand Valley- a fertile oasis in the desert. We are surrounded by agriculture- farms, orchards, and wineries- allowing us to develop strong relationships to our ingredients and with our suppliers.

Bin 707 Foodbar, Tacoparty, Dinnerparty Grand Junction
A fourth generation Denver Native, Josh began his restaurant career in 1994, working nights while spending his days pursuing a career as a snowboarder, Josh had the opportunity to learn from and cook for some of Denver's most notable restauranteurs and chefs of the time. In the late 90''s, after realizing his love for the business, Josh moved to the “front of the house” to focus on operations and hospitality. With hands-on experience curating eclectic Spanish Wine lists and 300+ bottle tequila menus, Josh began studying for his level one Sommelier Certification. He returned to Metro State college to pursue a degree in Industrial Design, unintentionally developing a skillset invaluable to his future in the industry.
Josh met his wife and business partner, Jodi (also an industry vet) in 2005 and in 2007 the couple moved to her hometown of Grand Junction, Colorado. The economic downturn of the late 2000s hit the Grand Valley hard, which sparked the concept for Bin 707 Foodbar. Josh and Jodi wanted to create a restaurant designed to make a significant economic impact by creating a restaurant open twelve hours a day, seven days a week. With Josh as the Executive Chef and Jodi as the bar manager, the couple opened Bin in Feb 2011. With a staff of 50 focused on service and hospitality, and the food, beverage and wine programs sourced with the ethos of “local first, Colorado second and domestic last”, Bin 707 Foodbar grew quickly and garnered an amazing presence. At a time when “Farm to Table” had yet to be coined, Josh was and continues to build menus based upon product availability from the region as a showcase of Western Colorado and Colorado cuisine. In 2017, the couple opened their second and third restaurants Tacoparty and Dinnerparty. Tacoparty is a quick service Colorado sourced taco shop. Dinnerparty is a private 40 seat dining room created to host multi-course tasting menus and collaboration events. Like their original Bin 707 Foodbar, the restaurants are created to showcase a unique sense of place intended to promote Colorado's Grand Valley. Josh's focus on menu creation and sourcing are driven by the mission to both explore and continue to define regional and Colorado Cuisine.
SEASONAL COLORADO CUISINE
Josh and Jodi have been an economic driver for the Grand Valley's agricultural industry- regularly rotating the menu in order to support whatever is in season from local farms. Their goal is to create a sustainable economy while providing a work environment with high standards in quality and commitment to their mission. Bin 707 Foodbar has literally changed western Colorado's food scene- economically driving the agricultural industry, expanding the palette of local diners in ways they never imagined, and bringing a community together on a regular basis to break bread.

Tacoparty is contemporary Southwestern Cuisine. Our concept lives where an unconventional culinary experience and rural Colorado intersect. At Tacoparty, we celebrate our states heritage by creating tacos rooted in tradition while utilizing our amazing regional resources. Each of our dishes is designed with the intent to deliver an approachable take as contemporary Colorado cuisine in a truly unexpected way.
TACO PARTY is a fast, casual taco shop with a farm to table ethos. Despite the Downtown LA vibe, the menu features regional and Colorado sourced products. Doing so continues to build on a sustainable food system that Bin 707 Foodbar pioneered since its inception in 2011.
Our menu is designed to showcase products grown, made or sourced here in Colorado's Grand Valley- from our local farmers, ranchers, brewers, distillers & winemakers who also are our friends & neighbors. Because of the seasonality of western Colorado, our menu changes day to day and seasonally, but always includes a variety of seasonal tacos, “not tacos” or main dishes and several appetizers like our cant miss guacamole showcasing Palisade fruit and produce. Save room for our seasonal house made soft serve ice cream- that's right, SOFT SERVE ice cream.
When not managing his two restaurants, Josh is experimenting in his "incubator" for menu and concept ideas. DINNER PARTY, located next door to Taco Party, is a 50 seat dining room and multi-use space built to showcase the best of Colorado's culinary world. Josh and his wife and business partner, Jodi plan to host weekly events such as collaboration dinners with featured chefs, purveyors and artisans. The space will also serve as the next generation of West Slope Supper Club- a pop up dinner party concept that promotes the Grand Valley as an agritourism destination, as well as an extension to Bin 707 Foodbar where the Niernberg's can host wine tastings, art exhibits and other events.
