Tavernetta will reopen November 9

After three years of planning, eight days operating, and nearly two months closed, the much anticipated Tavernetta restaurant will be back in business November 9.

The Italian restaurant by the owners of Boulder’s Frasca Food & Wine closed September 21 when a kitchen fire disrupted dinner service. The fire occurred just eight days after the restaurant’s opening.

Though no one was injured during the fire, the restaurant was immediately evacuated. Since the blaze, the Tavernetta team has worked to replace affected equipment, rebuild destructed woodwork, and restore smoke damages. Chef Ian Wortham has been working on a new winter menu.

When Tavernetta originally opened in September, it was one of the most anticipated restaurants of the year. A more approachable and affordable alternative to Frasca, it came with the same attention to detail expected from owners Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson, now conveniently situated for Denverites at Union Station.

The restaurant will begin serving again at 11 a.m. on Thursday, November 9. Reservations will be open starting at 11 a.m. November 8 via the restaurant’s website.
