Mel’s Bistro, at 1120 East Sixth Avenue, has been on the block for some time now, and while many of Denver’s big names were rumored to have looked into ... More >>

    What the Hell's Up at the Former Mel's?

    At this time last year, fans were still bemoaning the closure of Mel's in Cherry Creek. But there's been a lot of action since then. Mel Master turned his two Montecito restaurants into reincarnations of Mel's -- but now, as detailed here, plans to sell majority interest in the Mel's in Greenwood Vi ... More >>
