Confusion reigns over Zaidy's Fusion Grill

The residents of Writer Square were ready last night with their petitions complaining about a proposed liquor-license change for the former Zaidy's Deli Downtown, which morphed into Zaidy's Fusion Grill this spring and was planning to transform itself again into Fusion Cantina, offering salsa dancing and live entertainment.

But the application for a cabaret license, which would allow such entertainment, was dismissed at last night's hearing before the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses, when no attorney or corporate officer appeared to push the application.

Although Zaidy's could refile, the restaurant space remains dark and messages left at the Fusion Grill number have not been returned.
