It's a sad day, Denver — chef Paul Reilly and GM Aileen Reilly will close Encore on Colfax after brunch service this Sunday. Due to severed lease negotiations at the Lowenstein Theatre Complex, the Reilly siblings will be looking for a new space to either reopen Encore or develop another concept. Aileen issued this statement:
We were working for some time with the complex’s owner and developer to modify the current lease to allow for the long-term viability of the restaurant. Also during this period, we have been working with Mark Thomas of Sanborn and Company to locate an additional location. Denver is a great restaurant town and we are confident we will find a location that fits Encore.
