Exclusive: Restaurant Kevin Taylor and Prima closing at the Hotel Teatro

"When Restaurant Kevin Taylor opened, it was a completely new offering for Denver, a city still very much trying to find its way on the culinary map," reflects Kevin Taylor, chef of Kevin Taylor's at the Opera House, Limelight Supper Club, Palettes at the Denver Art Museum, Rouge and the Teller Bar in Central City, Restaurant Kevin Taylor and Prima Ristorante, the last two of which are the in-house restaurants at the Hotel Teatro, which will soon undergo a multimillion-dollar renovation -- a renovation that won't include Taylor's namesake restaurant or Prima. Restaurant Kevin Taylor will close on Sunday, March 30, and Prima will shut its doors on May 1 so that it, too, can be renovated before reopening as a new restaurant, operated by the hotel.
