Openings and Closings

All the Restaurant and Bar Openings and Closings This Week

Illegal Burger owner Jim Nixon is launching AmeriCanna Cafe.
Illegal Burger isn't opening a new location, but it's launching something that was once illegal — a food truck serving cannabis-infused food. The infusion will be CBD-only for now, because selling THC-infused food outside of a dispensary still is illegal, but one day we could be munching on marijuana burgers or THC tacos. For now, we can just look forward to this spring's launch of the AmeriCanna Cafe food truck, a project of Illegal Burger's parent company.

Earlier this week, we reported that RiNo Yacht Club will be pulling up anchor from The Source at the end of January. That's just the beginning of the changes at the market hall, though. The Source will soon get a new central bar (with Harvest Juicery pressed juices by day and booze by night) called Isabel, named after Isabel Nesmith Evans, the woman who ran the original Source foundry in the 1880s. Also at the Source, baker Ismael de Sousa will open Reunion Bread Company, where he'll bake breads and pastries reflecting his Venezuelan and Portuguese background, as well as his travels in South Africa, England and the United States; look for a January 19 opening. And Acorn is expanding into the space previously occupied by Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe.
