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

Via Modern Tratteria & Bar has gone the way of Brasserie Rouge, Anita's Crab Shack, and Cucina Cucina, which all occupied the same space in the Ice House at 1801 Wynkoop Street.

Jason Sheehan raved about James Mazzio's menu (he loved Brasserie Rouge, too), but even Mazzio couldn't make this place go. The phone is disconnected, and the website down. But we hear that a deal is already in the works to put a new restaurant into this black hole.

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.
