Let the good times roll! Lucile's Creole Cafe has now brought a taste of the bayou to Littleton. The fifth link in a chain that started in 1980 in Boulder, then added Fort Collins and Longmont, and stretched to Denver in 2005, is now in the south suburbs, too, occupying part of the vast Riverfront project abruptly vacated last fall by Leo Goto's various ventures.
The Littleton restaurant opened yesterday morning, and the lines aren't quite as long as those on South Logan. Yet. Lucile's is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call 303-797-1190.
