COVID-19 Concerns:

Thank you for your patience and understanding these past many months as we’ve carefully considered how to best provide our creativity and service to our neighborhood. As we reopen (in very limited terms) during the ongoing pandemic, we’re committed to doing absolutely everything we possibly can to ensure the health and sanitation of our guests, staff, purveyors, and surrounding community.

We are closely monitoring the official guidance provided by both the CDC, WHO, and Denver Public Health as we cautiously reopen our beautiful little restaurant. We are vigilant in ensuring all of our staff have been fully briefed (and are constantly updated) on the ongoing situation and sanitary practices.

As always, we continue to take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene across our restaurant at all times. Because, in simple terms, we created a restaurant dedicated to making people happy and healthy. While there are many other wonderful reasons to visit with us, this basic edifice of health and happiness will always be our primary goal; public contagions be damned.

One other tidbit we’d like to share: while we hope that the virus is eliminated in short order, we know that certain realities may hamper these efforts. As such, we have committed to being flexible with our staffing, scheduling, and general operations. Appreciative of being a weird but beloved restaurant in CapHill, we subscribe to the notion that “slow and steady wins the race”. So, while we may occasionally choose to quickly limit our offerings, hours, or service from time to time, we ask that you forgive us these trespasses –knowing that our goal is to protect you and ourselves, so we can all have a chance to hug each other in the long-term. After all, the whole point is to get to the other side of this finish line, happy and healthy.    😉
