Provisions seems to be one of the latest restaurant catch words, both nationally and locally. Portland has Olympic Provisions, San Francisco is home to State Bird Provisions and Houston has the unadorned Provisions. Here in town, chef Alex Seidel is about to open Mercantile Dining & Provision at Union Station, while the nearby Provisions Chophaus opened and closed in less than two weeks. And on Labor Day, Chris Topham and Jason Ladd, two restaurant and bar veterans from Philadelphia, will open Asbury Provisions in the University of Denver neighborhood, in the location recently vacated by the Renegade Publik House . This house of provisions also promises a big beer list, craft cocktails and a focus on "imbibing culture," as the two put it.
