Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Just got word from a sharp-eyed tipster in the 17th Avenue neighborhood that something appears to be going on at Aix. Or, more to the point, nothing seems to be going on at Aix. 

I hit this place, which won our Best Taste of Provence in 2007, a few weeks back for Second Helping, since chef/owner Rachel Wolcott and her kitchen had recently gone through a fairly substantial menu change. But that doesn't seem to have done the trick, because the restaurant was dark on Saturday night and has remained so through today. On a drive-by a few minutes ago, there was no sign of life inside -- and since Aix recently started serving lunch, there ought to be someone in the house right now answering the phone. Also, the website, www.restaurantaix.com, has been pulled down, leaving only a pretty flowered frame and the words "Something new coming soon... Stay tuned."

I will.

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.
