Denver Restaurant Serving the Community More than Just Food

“We have a friend, Walt Pourier, who always says, ‘You thrive, I thrive, we thrive.’ That’s the kind of mentality that we like to go by,” says Ben Jacobs, co-owner of Tocabe: An American Indian Eatery. Jacobs (BA ’05, history) and Matt Chandra (BA ’05, digital media studies) opened their first restaurant in December 2008. Nine years and two locations later, they’re still at it, but with a bigger goal in mind.
