Reader: The Braun space is cursed, I tell you!
Braun Taphaus & Grille moved into the former Archive Room last fall.
Just a few days after the Archive Room closed in Olde Town Arvada, the Bar-On family took on the space, which was right across from an Udi's Pizza Cafe & Bar, one of nine restaurants in the family's homegrown empire. But for the new space, they chose a new concept: a sports bar with an Austrian accent, reflecting the family's heritage. But when Gretchen Kurtz recently reviewed Braun, she found the concept less than successful.
It's unfortunate to hear that their food hasn't improved since I was there in December. At that time, I chalked it up to how quickly they took over the space, and them trying to find their identity separate from Udi's -- much like Gretchen here. Now it's been nearly six months and it's not getting better. The space is cursed, I tell you!
Have you tried Braun Taphaus & Grille -- or any of the previous occupants of this space in Olde Town Arvada? What other spots in Denver seem cursed?
