Bacon, a new eatery in Sunnyside, plans to open its doors on June 1, serving classic breakfast foods during the morning and brunch hours and becoming more creative in its approach during dinner. There will be bacon in many of the dishes here and the range of available choices for bacon will be broad, but there is much more to the new spot.
The 2,200 space dining room (plus 700 square feet on the mezzanine and 1,000 square feet of patio) set in Cobbler's Corner will be an approachable and comfortable modern restaurant with an interior crafted by prominent designer Melissa Friday of Xan Creative. Friday's touch is present in many Denver restaurants from ACE to Sugarmill and the Snooze restaurants.
David Dill, partner in the Bacon Restaurant Group, says the eatery is committed to great pancakes and promises to keep breakfast items traditional, but unique. Bacon will offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Some dishes may be ordered vegetarian or vegan as well. "All local, all organically sourced. That's very important to us. We really want it to be a community effort," Dill explained.
Chefs Rachel Wolcott, formerly of Aix, and Matt Stein, owner at the Chowder Room, are consulting with Bacon on the still evolving menu. The spot will be open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. during the weekdays and perhaps until 10:30 on Fridays and Saturdays.
