The beleaguered Beauvallon building has swallowed another restaurant.

Mr. Coco's Bar & Grill, possibly the worst-named Mexican joint ever, has shut its doors at 925 Lincoln Street. Before it was Mr. Coco's, that space had held, very briefly, Marni's Steakhouse (which left behind its awning) and before that, Moe's Southwest Grill.

Although other surviving ventures in the Beauvallon report that business has been bad, another clue to the demise of Mr. Coco's remains posted on the door, as ween above.

The list of other casualties at the Beauvallon is long: Aqua, Deli Zone, Wholly Tomato, Dolce Vita and Moda, which occupied the space that is now Nine75.

But NIne75, too, has gone through some tough times, and after owner Jim Sullivan abruptly closed the restaurant last fall, Nine75 was picked up by Jet Entertainment Group, which is pushing the Back Bar but recently stopped serving weekday lunch.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
