In LoDo, Jovanina's Broken Italian has reopened eight months after closing at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. Founders Jake and Jennifer Linzinmeir launched the restaurant in 2018 serving housemade pasta and wood-fired pizzas and other dishes. The cozy eatery is now open from 5 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
And in West Highland, Brazen joins a growing number of restaurants closing for the winter. Owner Chris Sargent left this message on his restaurant's Facebook page:
First I would like to thank all of those that have supported us over the years and especially during this pandemic. It has been an honor to serve you for the past 6 years. I would also like to thank the amazing staff at BRAZEN. They have worked so very hard during these times and I am truly proud and thankful to call them colleagues.Here's our complete list of openings and closings for the week of November 2 to 8, 2020:
As many of you know BRAZEN is very small and because of the lack of indoor seating in addition to the colder weather, we will be closing for the season beginning this coming Sunday. We plan to reopen when patio season resumes! So come by and see us (or order takeout) today or tomorrow while we still have 2 beautiful patio days to enjoy! We hope this is not a goodbye forever, but just a see you later.
