Late last year, chef William Wahl decided to put Indulge French Bistro, which he'd opened seven years ago on the edge of the now-hot Berkeley neighborhood, on the block. An ad on Zillo offered the French restaurant for just $200,000 (although the "Zestimate" of the property's value was $426,981).
And apparently the Zillo ad worked, because Wahl is now sending this message to associates:
After 7 years of business, this week, Indulge French Bistro has closed its doors definitively. It is time for us for some new adventures!
We would like to thank you for your support and loyalty during all those years.
We have enjoyed our time here and are grateful that you have shared it with us.
If you want to contact us, you can send us a message via the Restaurant's Facebook, we will be happy to stay in touch with you.
We wish you well,
Stephanie & William Wahl.
Although there's no further information on Indulge's Facebook page, which hasn't been updated since December, here's part of that original Zillo listing:
Fantastic opportunity for entrepreneur to purchase a fully operating restaurant in the Berkeley neighborhood of north Denver. The Indulge French Bistro has been successfully operating for the past 7 years on the corner of 38th and Raleigh. The restaurant is situated on 8,425 square feet of property in a prime location with fantastic visibility and includes over 3000 square feet of parking. What a bonus! The dining room can accommodate 60+ people. The fenced outdoor patio will seat an additional 27. The dining room features a full bar with room to grow. All restaurant equipment and inventory will transfer to the new owner. The upper level is currently being used as an office and storage. With a little TLC the upper level could be converted into a private residence with bedroom, bathroom, living room, roof top deck and office.The current lease is up for renewal on February 1, 2015. A new multi-year lease has been approved by the landlord at $3000/month!... Business includes transferable liquor license. Zoning (U-MS-3) allows for mixed use including residential/personal residence, restaurant, office space & more.
