The corner of West 33rd Avenue and Tejon Street is becoming a mini restaurant destination of its own within the LoHi neighborhood, especially with the demolition of Dickinson Plaza under way one block south, where several cafes and eateries were given the boot to make way for new development. Fat Jack's Subs nabbed a spot next door to Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe and opened for business yesterday, while newcomer American Cultures moved into a gleaming new spot to join older neighbors Jezebel's and Old Major.
But we've been keeping an eye on the vacancy at 2005 West 33rd ever since Virgil and Rosa Linda Aguirre retired and closed their neighborhood favorite, Rosa Linda's Mexican Restaurant, last October. There's work being done at the address, where paper covers the windows and the sounds of sawing and hammering can be heard.
The mystery has been solved. Bremen's Wine & Tap will soon open, adding a new brand to the neighborhood.
Bremen's already has a website and Facebook page, both featuring a logo with a donkey, dog, cat and rooster perched atop one another — a reference to the Bremen Town Musicians of Grimm Brothers fame. The Facebook page describes Bremen's as "a casual eatery in Denver's LoHi neighborhood featuring rotisserie, craft sandwiches, wine, beer and cocktails on tap."
