UPDATE: We have the full scoop on the new Squeaky Bean -- including its location -- right here.
They're baacckkk! Johnny Ballen, owner of the Squeaky Bean, which closed several months ago when lease negotiations broke down between him and his landlord, has finally (thank God) signed a least on a new parcel of land somewhere in Denver, which will open sometime in the spring of next year. We know exactly where his new restaurant will be, but we're going to let you guess the correct location from our collection of photos on the following page, all of which Ballen, who will re-open the Bean with chef Max MacKissock behind the burners, claims he considered while searching for a new space. The first person to correctly guess which photo will be the site of the new restaurant will win an EatDenver Dining Deck.
And as soon as we have a winner, we'll tell you all about what Ballen, MacKissock and the whole Bean team have up their sleeves.
Ready, set, go!
