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

This building at Alameda and Zuni held Taqueria La Capilla until last fall, when the place closed up shop. And while we saw no activity inside, the windows are papered over, suggesting that renovations are afoot.

Another clue: The Asian Cajun lists this address on its application for a liquor license; the hearing is slated for June 17. And while we were initially excited to see that the owner was Charlie Phan, we're fairly certain that this is not a venture from the San Francisco restaurateur who owns the famous Slanted Door, among other concepts.

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.
