DEN airport: least crowded place to eat during covid

Travelling through DEN. Will probably need to eat at some point. Is there anyplace in the airport that might be safer (less crowded, more air volume) than eating on plane? No lounges seem to have decks. Any ideas?

Get your food to go and find a space away from the food courts and any active gates.

If you know what Denver's weather likes, you will understand why.

Each gate concourse has an upper level mezzanine on level 3. Take an escalator up and you will find office doors and rows of empty seats.

had a connection in there last week on UA.

went to central area for food. Got it take out and Aston the floor against that central glass wall behind the Gate board.

ive also ate on the floor where there was no stores or bathrooms or I sat at empty unused gates to eat sitting on a chair.

Concourse B west side now has an open air deck at the very end.

Departed/arrived at gate B8. That whole new area is very nice--though a bunch of people were hanging out on the deck, including construction workers on break.

Probably too late for OP and, I'm going from memory here, so please keep the flames down if I am a little off, but in Concourse A, near the ends, there was an escalator going up to a second level that was open to the concourse below and had seats and bathrooms. You generally cannot hear gate announcements up there, but it was usually uncrowded.
