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

Denver lost a Peruvian eatery when Pikkas closed in Cherry Creek in December, but the space didn't sit unclaimed for long. There's now a new sign up — along with some beetle-kill pine cladding — announcing that Grind is moving in. We're putting our money on a coffee shop, but a sausage factory might be a good guess, too. The address, a garden-level spot at 300 Fillmore Street, has seen a number of other eateries come and go, including Abrusci's, Campo de Fiori and Starfish. 

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.
