Openings and Closings

DiFranco's, an Italian deli-market, opens today in the Beauvallon

DiFranco's, 955 Lincoln Street, will open today in the Beauvallon building, a space that has swallowed up many earlier restaurants -- but owner Ryan DiFranco is sure he can break the curse with his concept.

"The emphasis is on local, fresh Italian food," DiFranco says. "Denver needs a good local Italian deli and market. I want to be able to share my passion for great Italian food, coming from a large Italian family. I want to do it right, with local farmers, and celebrate good food with the city."

After remodeling the space (and throwing a party for friends and family last night), DiFranco is ready to debut his deli-market.

Starting today, DiFranco's will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Click here for more information and to view the locally-sourced menu.
