Little Pub Company, which owns two dozen bars and restaurants in metro Denver, is responsible for the turnaround; the Hound is the first of several of its properties that the company plans to turn into neighborhood restaurants. Spearheading the switch is Cecelia Jones, operations director, and Dakota Coburn, culinary director.
Menu offerings range from burgers to salmon to a variety of fresh salads; the roster also includes Korean fried chicken and a grilled-cauliflower dish that pairs the lightly charred vegetable with mint salsa verde and curry honey.
Once the Hound is up and running efficiently, both Jones and Coburn will move on to help with the next Little Pub transformation; in the meantime, Jones has the GM role while Coburn is executive chef.
The Hound is now open from 5 to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and Friday and Saturday from 5 to 11 p.m. The restaurant plans to open for lunch starting January 9.
