Denver's apparently getting a fifth gastropub -- and that could give Jason Sheehan a major case of indigestion, as you know if you've been following his gastropub rants right here on Cafe Society.
As we reported last month, Denver's three existing, self-proclaimed gastropubs -- Jonesy's, Argyll and Colt & Gray -- will soon be joined by Downtown Gastropub, one of three new spots that Tryst owner Paul Piciocchi is putting into the former Alto on 15th Street.
And now comes news of SKYBOX, a gastropub that's slated to open at the Streets of SouthGlenn in November. Judging from the advert the place posted on Craigslist (below), it's looking for a chef. Food for thought if you're searching for a job, and more food for fodder if you're Sheehan.
