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

Despite the much vaunted pooch-walking service, there wasn't a pet in sight at French 250, which hosted an opening party last night. But with plenty of pretty people pouring in and bottles of champagne pouring out, it doesn't look like this restaurant will be going to the dogs anytime soon.

French 250 took over the space at 250 Steele Street that was pioneered long ago by Bistro Adde Brewster. Since Adde's left, the spot has been a black hole of suck. But with French 250 now right next to two-week-old Tambien, which is making great margs in the former Sketch space, things are looking much brighter for this Cherry Creek address. -- Patricia Calhoun

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.
