Love it or hate it, there's no shortage of opinions about the Squeaky Bean. And yesterday, when the announcement came down that the restaurant had found a new home in LoDo -- in a renovated warehouse (above) where owner Johnny Ballen can put an actual kitchen for chef Max MacKissock -- people quickly started squeaking and squawking.

Said Notsohappyguest:

Perhaps now that they will have a full kitchen they will be able to scramble eggs.

To which RonPopeil responded:

Looks like you need a RonCo inside the head scrambler. Crying over scrambled eggs. You definitely have yolks for brains.

The former home of the Squeaky Bean at 3301 Tejon Street will soon be Jezebel's, a new restaurant from the folks behind 8 Rivers.

For a look at all the places where Ballen could have signed a lease -- but didn't -- go here.

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.
