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

Jay Chadrom hasn't been able to settle a dispute with his landlord at the Beauvallon -- but he did managed to settle something else: He just closed Aqua, his raw bar and kitchen-free restaurant at 925 Lincoln, and reports that he's "very busy removing everything."

But some of the things will resurface. The entire menu, for example, which is now being offered at Opal, Chadrom's restaurant just across the street at 100 East Ninth Avenue.

All in all, it's been a tough couple of weeks at the Beauvallon. After all, the space at the top of the block belongs to Nine75, which Jim Sullivan closed on September 29 -- and now is slated to reopen Friday with new owners.

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.
