The Plimoth, a new neighborhood eatery will open this fall in the north City Park area of Denver at 2335 E. 28th Ave?nue. The new venture was created by Denver veteran chef Pete Ryan, who previously served as executive chef instructor at Cook Street School, chef at Z Cuisine, and executive chef at the Village Cork. While the chef has flown under the radar for a while, he has assembled a crew, built a new restaurant, and is ready to get back to cooking.
The Plimoth is named after chef Ryan's hometown in Massachussetts and its home is in a 1920's building in the neighborhood that the chef has called home for over a decade. The small yet spacious eatery has been completely remodeled and can seat 40 guests, including 15 bar and counter seats inside with an additional 25 seats on the brick patio garden. The rustic décor includes lots of natural light, exposed vintage brick, reclaimed fir countertops, and an original drugstore tile motif. Restored streetcar rails from the old 28th street trolley system act as footrests along the bar and counter.
The restaurant aims to provide a relaxed and comfortable dining experience. Focused on using local, sustainable and seasonal ingredients, the chefs at the Plimoth will play off familiar "farmhouse fare with a contemporary spin." The menu promises to be eclectic, with inspiration drawn from local and seasonal ingredients prepared using traditional French and Italian techniques, yet adding a modern twist.
The bar will feature a well-curated wine list, a rotating selection of Colorado draft beers, as well as many small batch bottled beers, and a focused cocktail selection that will match the season and the offerings of the day.
A firm opening date has not been released, but diners should expect the Plimoth to open its doors early this fall.
