Wine Bar and Brew Pub to Open on US40
The restaurant world is doing its usual changes here on Winter Park this mud season. We have some restaurants moving, some new ones coming in, some remodeling and some expanding. It all means for a busy summer of construction and restaurant openings and movings.
Deno’s Mountain Bistro is now open after their remodel. The Winter Park Sushi Bar has moved to their new location and re-opened. The Sushi Bar is in the space previously housing the Cosmic Dog burrito shop next to Rudi’s Deli. Both Deno’s and the Sushi Bar look great and the upgrades should work well for both of them.
Next we have Emilie’s Wine and Tapas Bar opening next to the BackCountry Grill by the owners of the Backcountry Grill. Locally owned and operated, Emilie’s Restaurant is Winter Park’s only wine and tapas bar! Offering a wide array of tapas (Spanish-style plates) Emilie’s knows how to keep it simple: good food, good wine, affordable prices. Look for Emilie’s to open Memorial Day weekend 2011.
Lastly we have a new Brew Pub and Sports Bar opening in downtown Winter Park. Literature & Libations, LLC d.b.a. The Library Sports Grill and Brewery to be located at 78491 US Highway 40, Winter Park, CO 80482 had a liquor
hearing May 17th and from what I can discern they were awarded a liquor license. The Literature and Libations group are an outfit out of Laramie, Wyoming and are planning a brewery and sports bar in the old Wild Creek space. Rumor around town is they will be opening sometime around June 24th. The Library specializes in 8 House Brews that vary from a Kolsch to a Stout. Stop in for a pint (or five)!
Lots of moving and shaking in the restaurant word in Winter Park, CO and it looks as we will have to check out all the new great food and drink. We will report back on what we thought of all the new fare.
