A little over a year ago, Matt Selby shocked Denver's dining community when he announced that he was parting ways with the Vesta Dipping Grill restaurant group. Selby spent most of his career working with Josh Wolkon and together, the two had opened Steuben's and Ace.
Selby decided to move in a different direction, however, and join Corner House, a new restaurant located in Jefferson Park. There, Selby would have a chance to return to hands-on cooking and be in an ownership role, along with partner James Iacino.
Today, in a press release, the restaurant and the chef announced that they were amicably parting ways. No particular reason for the break-up is stated.
The Corner House and Chef Matt Selby have amicably parted ways. CH's partners say, "We respect Chef Selby's innovative cuisine and thank him for helping get Corner House established; we've decided it is best to move in a different direction with our restaurant at this time, and wish Chef Selby the best in his future professional endeavors". The partners will be steering the restaurant back on its original course of providing a space where the food, atmosphere and prices are in line with what a community expects from their neighborhood bistro, and are looking forward to welcoming everyone back in for a comfortable, warm experience of delicious food and drinks.
Corner House is closed for the week to give new management time to look over the food and drink menus and will open again for dinner service on Tuesday, December 3 at 4 p.m.
