2019 Food & Wine Classic in Aspen
Celebrating 4 years in Boulder County, Bin 46 showcases their passion for culinary excellence with the debut of their sister restaurant concept Binto Box in Aspen
Longmont, CO, May 17, 2019 – Today, Bin 46 Craft Bar & Restaurant announced the launch of a new concept that will open new markets for the company’s growth. The new concept will debut at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen from June 14-16, 2019 where some of the nation’s top celebrity chefs and wine experts will come together for one of the most anticipated industry events of the year. Bin 46’s involvement in this year’s festival is reflective of the restaurant’s desire to foster innovation and creative expression within the culinary community. “What better way to kick off our new concept than presenting at the most prestigious event in the state for food and wine,” says Campbell.
Known for its rustic elegant farm to table fare, sourcing as locally as possible, Campbell states “We already do healthy food well. With Binto Box®, we can simply bring it to a larger audience.” She continues, “there is a gap to fill with corporate conferences, home delivery and take out that truly is food you feel good about eating and you know where it is sourced and how it is prepared.”
Bin 46 captures an upscale diner with an approachable menu, full of family recipes including its signature 7x Wagyu beef stroganoff and a rosemary & garlic smoked lamb rib rack. “Who wouldn’t want to grab dinner to go with our menu?” Alternatively, Campbell also knows the conference lunch crowd is growing weary of sandwiches and salads. A healthy smoked salmon & quinoa bowl or Bento sampling of chicken and pad Thai noodles with house pickled vegetables. Perhaps classic street food from Bangkok is a more exciting fare. Don’t be surprised to find Cuban marinated citrus pork in your Binto, a favorite of Campbell’s. Her adventurous culinary palate is what brought success to Bin 46. She hopes to inspire and infuse more worldly flavors into healthy fast casual catering and family meals to go.
“The FOOD & WINE Classic is a wonderful forum to celebrate culinary talent and also learn from some of the most creative minds in the industry. It’s a privilege to put my team out there front and center.” Campbell states, “Bento boxes are a hot food trend right now and primarily serving Asian fare. I am excited to put our own culinary spin on it --a little Bin 46 into Binto Boxes®”.

About BintoBox ®
As a nation that loves to eat, we hold food, and the people who prepare it, close to our hearts. What better way to honor the traditional Japanese Bento tradition than to incorporate worldly flavors into a non-traditional "Binto" and share our version of love in a box! BintoBox® provides catering for small and large corporate group meals as well as take-out options.
Bento (弁当 bentō) is a single-portion take-out or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento holds rice or noodles, fish or meat, with pickled and cooked vegetables in a box. We've given our lunch boxes a creative spin with the same love and dedication to a traditional Bento and we hope you enjoy! If you love Bin 46, you will love BintoBox®!
We source our ingredients as locally as possible, partnering with farms and purveyors that take pride in organic, sustainable and bio dynamic practices. Click here for a list of our partners.
