If all had gone according to plan, by now La Loma would have been serving for two months in its new home at 1801 Broadway, in the former Trinity Grille. But when you're renovating a thirty-year-old restaurant space, things rarely go according to plan — and La Loma will be staying put a little longer at its Jefferson Park location, until at least the end of August, with a targeted reopening on Broadway in early September.
Still, this is definitely the last Father's Day that La Loma will host in the home it's occupied at 2527 West 26th Avenue for over thirty years, and so it's planning quite a bash for June 18. Specials on Father's Day include Steak Tampiqueña for $16, as well as the Red Eye: Pacifico and Sangrita served over ice with a chili salt rim for $9.
While work continues on the downtown restaurant space, the Brinkerhoff family, which has owned and operated La Loma since 1981, is proceeding with plans to open a flagship La Loma just down the hill from its current spot, by the Aquarium in the Platte Valley, as well as a third location in the Castle Rock area. By the end of this year, they also plan to introduce a new concept, Sierra Grill, in the RidgeGate community by Park Meadows.
For now — and at least two more months — La Loma is open in its current location from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Watch for updates on the La Loma Facebook page, or call the restaurant at 303-433-8300.
