ViewHouse 2.0 will rise from the dust of Trail Dust
ViewHouse has been such a big hit since the giant eatertainment complex opened in the Ballpark neighborhood in March that owner Francois Safieddine and managing partner Brad Manske are planning to open a second location next spring, in the southern 'burbs. That's a very different neighborhood, but ViewHouse 2.0 will still have a stunning view of the Rocky Mountains.

The building at 7101 South Clinton Street in Centennial, just east of I-25, was home to the last Trail Dust Steak House in the metro area, which finally closed in December 2009. (The original is still open in Texas.) After that, it became the short-lived Rhythms Bar & Grill.
The building will be totally transformed for the second ViewHouse, which will be even larger than the original at 16,000 square feet. There will be outdoor seating with firepits and a grassy area for the games that have become so popular in the Ballpark neighborhood, as well as two large banquet rooms for private parties and events, big bar and dining areas.
Executive chef José Guererro will be in charge of the kitchen here, too, and the menu will be adjusted and expanded to reflect the neighborhood -- with more of a focus on entrees as well as bar snacks
The deal just closed yesterday; construction on ViewHouse 2.0 will begin in December, with a completion target of next April.
