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

The lovely old building a 777 East 17th Avenue has been home to many restaurants over the past few decades: the French Quarter (which explains the New Orleans look), the Peacock, the Dome, Majorca (where the owners commissioned an exorcism), Toby's and, finally, J.R.'s, a legendary gay bar in town that closed last year. Last Friday, the space reopened as Pasquini's Pizzeria. There's been a Pasquini's on 17th Avenue before -- but it never looked like this. Keep reading for a look at the latest outpost of Pasquini's.

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.
