The "Fusion Restaurant" banner hanging on the outside of Zaidy's Deli Downtown, at the corner of 15th and Lawrence streets, has thrown more than a few fans into a panic. But not to worry: Zaidy's isn't leaving.

In fact, it's growing. While it will continue to serve its traditional deli breakfasts (starting at 6:30 a.m.) and lunch (until 3 p.m.), it's now going to stay open into the evening, when it will turn into Zaidy's Fusion Grill, with an expanded bar and a menu of small plates with a Mediterranean emphasis.

"The sign's wrong," said the employee who answered the phone this morning. "We're here."

There are no plans to change up the evening offerings at the original Zaidy's,121 Adams Street, which is already open until 8 p.m. Read Jason Sheehan's review of that Zaidy's here.

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.
