    Signs of life at Earls in Cherry Creek

    ​Although the metro area's third Earls was rumored to be opening today in the former home of Ocean at 201 Columbine Street, it now looks like that will be pushed back until Friday, November 27 (according to the poor fellow who just opened the phone at 5:50 a.m.). But there were signs of life i ... More >>

    Nine75 to go dark

    Yup, you read that headline right. Nine75, the embattled hipster enclave and jumped-up comfort food joint inside the Beauvallon complex at 975 Lincoln Street, is finally throwing in the towel. Nine75 was already closed once, by original owner Jim Sullivan, then rescued and revived by the guys from t ... More >>

    Adios, Mr. Coco's

    The beleaguered Beauvallon building has swallowed another restaurant. Mr. Coco's Bar & Grill, possibly the worst-named Mexican joint ever, has shut its doors at 925 Lincoln Street. Before it was Mr. Coco's, that space had held, very briefly, Marni's Steakhouse (which left behind its awning) and bef ... More >>

    Baker St. Pub moves into former Nine75

    Baker St. recreates a British pub in the Denver 'burbs. While other chains contract, Baker St. Pub & Grill has been taking advantage of the economy by snapping up now-empty locations in the metro area. First it took on a Chili's at 1729 28th Street in Boulder; now it's adding the former Nine75 nor ... More >>

    At Nine75, the food is still great, but your gift card is no good

    Got the best kind of phone call one afternoon last week: a friend was sitting on a $150 gift card to Nine75, the stylish restaurant at the corner of Lincoln and 10th, and he was ready to cash it in. Did I want to come along? Well, I suppose that box of mac and cheese can wait a night. Cut to a few ... More >>

    Cracking the Egg Shell on Blake Street

    The Jet Entertainment Group may be the busiest boys in chow business. They picked up Nine75 (975 Lincoln Street) right after Jim Sullivan closed it this fall, and reopened it in a matter of days. They're finishing up a project at the Jet Hotel, at 1612 Wazee Street, to make room for XO, a noodle ba ... More >>

    Nine75 is slated to reopen on Friday, October 10, under its new owner, the Jet Entertainment Group. There are lots of questions involved in this deal -- for example, will suppliers who'd cut off former owner Jim Sullivan return to Nine75? Will those outstanding bills be paid?

    Thank you for your continued patronage. Due to the poor economy we have decided to close the restaurant. We are sorry for the any [sic] inconvenience.
