As reported here in March, the Wine Cellar could soon uncork in Highland. This morning, the prospective owners of the joint, which would take over the spot at 2556 15th once occupied by the Red Door shop, are at their liquor-license hearing before the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses right now, but there shouldn't be a problem, since no one had registered an objection as of last week.
And although parking is tough in this area at the area on the edge of Highland -- and getting tougher, with the popularity of Forest Room 5 a few steps away, and Vita and Lola just up the street -- the Wine Cellar has signed a good-neighbor contract with HUNI, the neighborhood group that brokers such deals.
Also up for a hearing today: Brio Tuscan Grill, another location for the restaurant that opened last summer in the Vistas at Park Meadows, this one in the old Macaroni Grill space in Cherry Creek. This application, too, is unlikely to meet any obstacles.
