Bruxie, the fast-casual eatery that turned the standard waffle into the base for a host of playful sweet and savory sandwiches opened less than a year ago and made our list of the ten best new fast-casual restaurants in 2014. But a fun menu full of Belgo-American fare and a spot on Colorado Boulevard, where the Denver restaurant boom has been clearly evident, weren't enough to keep the waffle irons hot: Bruxie is now closed.
A message at Bruxie's phone number states that the restaurant closed "due to unforeseen circumstances" and encourages customers to head to one of the waffle shop's other locations for a fix. Unfortunately for those Denver customers, the other seven outposts are all located in California.
Matt Stein, the original consulting chef for Colorado's first and only Bruxie, left the group to open his own restaurant, the Chowder Room, at the beginning of this year.
