Tamayo will be closed for lunch thanks to kitchen fire
There's been a lot of commotion in downtown Denver restaurants over the past few weeks. First, a flash fire at Rock Bottom shut down two blocks of the city, and now, another fire forced Larimer Square's Tamayo to close for lunch.
The details of this fire are far less dramatic than the chemical-and-keg-caused Rock Bottom incident, however: Flames erupted from a kitchen fryer in the Tamayo kitchen, but thanks to the sprinkler system, the fire was out before the fire department even arrived at the restaurant.
Though a restaurant employee says damage is minimal, the restaurant will be forced to close for lunch to clean up the mess; the kitchen should reopen in time for dinner service.
