To The Wind, the quaint restaurant owned by chef Royce Oliveira and his wife Leanne Adamson, was vandalized last night. Adamson got to the East Colfax restaurant this morning to find the windows and wooden doors, some of which were freshly repaired, spray painted in purple. "Meat is murder" said the main message on the window.
"This came completely out of the blue," Adamson said. "We don't particularly focus on meat and nothing really happened that would give us any warning that we would be targeted by something like this. Now we gotta spent the day cleaning up the mess and figure out how to clean the wood," she continued.
Last night, To The Wind was honored by the Colorado Restaurant Association with the Exceptional Newcomer Award. The restaurant is listed among Essential Eater 38 and was among the best 25 restaurants 5280 Magazine's annual feature.
