The Humble Pie Store (humblepiestore.com) has closed the 300 Elati St. location and re-opened at 3550 E. Colfax in Denver’s renovated Galaxie Auto Body shop. The Baker neighborhood’s loss is Congress Park’s gain, and the new location is serving up the same great sweet and savory pies and complete coffee/tea service, as well as wine, beer and spirits.
Grind Kitchen + Watering Hole will open at 300 Fillmore St. later this month. The restaurant will join the growing number of farm-to-table eateries in Colorado. No website is available at this time, but foodies will eventually be able to peruse the interesting menu choices that chef Preston Phillips will create for the trendy location.
The entire complex located at Clayton Lane and First Avenue has been sold. This site is home to Cherry Creek’s Whole Foods Market as well as many other businesses. The developer plans to add more retail and residential space to the area, and the old Sears store will be torn down to make way for a walkway to access the shops.
The Tavern Platt Park (tavernhg.com) opened its doors February 29. The new addition to the Old South Pearl Street district is located at 1475 S. Pearl St. Stop by for a drink, or enjoy the great food that is the trademark of the Tavern Restaurant Group. The Platt Park location has a rooftop patio for outdoor dining and will stay open each night until 2:00a.m.
Boone’s Tavern is now called The Rosedale (therosedaletavern.com). The renamed and rebranded pub is located at 1135 E. Evans Ave. The restaurant boasts “elevated tavern fare” and serves a curated whiskey selection, craft beer and cocktails. Join them at Happy Hour for $1 fresh-shucked house oysters.
Late night partiers will be happy to hear that there is a new Fat Jack’s Super Subs (fatjackssubs.com) at 450 Broadway. The best part, they are open until 3:00a.m. Thursday through Saturday. Haven’t tried a Fat Jack’s sub? If you join their email list online you receive free chips and a drink with any sub purchase. They even offer a delivery service for those locals who don’t feel like leaving the house.
Construction has already started at 66 S. Logan St. The property, formerly the home of The Kitchen Gallery, will be turned into a coworking space and a three-story apartment complex. The builder will remodel the former Kitchen Gallery building for the workspace and use the adjacent parking lot as the site of the apartment building.
There is a new chocolate shop in town, and it opened just before Valentine’s Day. Deiter’s Chocolates (deiterschocolates.com) is located at 1734 E. Evans Ave. If that address sounds familiar it’s because it was the former home of Dietrich’s Chocolates, a Denver landmark. Deiter’s new chocolatier, Adrienne Johnson-Conway, is extremely qualified to bring us the best Bavarian-style chocolates as she was an apprentice to the now-retired Dietrich’s chocolatier for 15 years prior to opening on her own.
Washington Park Dental Center (washparkdental.com) just opened for business last month in a historic building located at 271 S. Downing. This brand new family dental office provides general dentistry: fillings, crowns, bridges and dentures.
Banded Oak Brewing will open soon at 470 Broadway. The name of the brewery provides a hint to how it will stand out from the microbrew crowd. They will serve beer aged in wine barrels, something the owner is passionate about because of a longtime family connection to the wine business. The business doesn’t have a website yet, but you can connect to them on Facebook so as to not miss the grand opening.
You may have noticed that the 540 E. Alameda Ave. Thai Basil (thaibasil.co) is closed. Never fear, the popular Asian food chain is just undergoing a remodel and is slated to reopen at the beginning of March.
Pearl Street Chiropractic (pearlstreetchiropractic.com), located at 1073 S. Pearl St., is celebrating their first anniversary this month. I have no doubt there will be balloons since the practice focuses on pediatric, pregnancy and family wellness. Next time you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and wish them a happy anniversary.
This is not a brand new opening, but I felt it deserved a mention. Torchy’s Tacos (torchystacos.com), located at 1085 Broadway, opened a little over a month ago. I was intrigued by the name but didn’t think too much about it until I drove past the restaurant one evening. Its red sign, and what I can only imagine to be thousands of watts of light bulbs, drew me like a moth to a flame. The inside is not only bright and fun, it looks more like an upscale eatery than the order-at-the-counter place that it is.
The Denver Museum of Nature and Science (dmns.org) has a new Vice President of Museum Partnerships and Programs. Nancy Walsh has taken on this role and the President and CEO, George Sparks, was quoted singing the praises of this 20-year veteran of program development and implementation. I see exciting things for the museum’s future. By the way, the museum is currently displaying Chocolate: The Exhibition, perfectly timed to run from Valentine’s Day through Easter.
The Trinity Grille, located at 1801 Broadway across from the Brown Palace, has closed its doors after more than 30 years in business. Trinity’s seafood and steaks will be replaced by tacos and burritos when La Loma Mexican restaurant moves into the space some time in April.
