Abrusci's of Cherry Creek taking over Campo de Fiori space

Just got the following sad farewell note from Elizabeth Plotke-Giordani, owner of Campo de Fiori, the subterranean Cherry Creek Italian restaurant at 300 Fillmore Street, which will close after a final throwdown party on Saturday, March 6.

It is with sadness that we want to let you know that Campo Denver will not be renewing its lease in Cherry Creek. It has been a great 10 yrs, but in these challenging times it has become necessary to focus on Campo Vail and Aspen as well as our new restaurant in Aspen, Gisella. The entire staff wishes to thank all our loyal Denver patrons, it was a pleasure serving you. Our last night will be Saturday March 6th and we will have a "Final Fling" party.

The entire staff and the partners want to thank all our loyal customers for a great 10 years. I will miss the Denver restaurant, the amazing staff, and the guests who became friends, but I look forward to focusing more time on my new restaurant in Aspen.

The space has already been snapped up by Steve Progar, chef-owner of Abrusci's Italian Restaurant, 3244 Youngfield Street, in Wheat Ridge. Progar will open Abrusci's of Cherry Creek sometime next month.
