Monday mornings are tough. But this new series isn't. Social Sightings is your quick look at interesting food tidbits that we've spotted recently. It goes down as easy as your first cup of coffee, and should whet your appetite for the week ahead.
Julep, a Southern eatery in RiNo, was one of many restaurants that closed in 2020
during pandemic dining restrictions. Now its space at 3258 Larimer Street is set to reopen as The Greenwich, under Deleores Tronco, one of the original co-owners of Work & Class. Tronco left Denver in 2016 to open a restaurant in New York City, the Banty Rooster, which was hit hard by the pandemic as well; its last day of service was August 22. The Greenwich, named for the NYC street where the Banty Rooster was located, is planning a fall debut.
