The Bistro at Stapleton Shutters With a Heartfelt Farewell

The three year old spot is no more

Facebook

The Bistro, a restaurant that opened in May of 2014 at 2955 Ulster Street, has shuttered its doors. In a booming restaurant scene like Denver’s, not everyone can be a winner and the flood of new spots in the Stapleton area affected this place in particular. Since the beginning of 2017, the Stanley Marketplace added several new restaurant options, to Stapleton, including Annette, Rosenberg’s Bagels & Delicatessen, Comida, Denver Biscuit Company, and the Stanley Beer Hall. The Eastbridge Town Center brought along Cattivella, Concourse, and Next Door. And there are more coming in that same development.

That was much for the community to support all at once, according to chef Anthony Ramos of the Bistro. The Facebook page of the restaurant shared the heartfelt message below with its customers and the community.

Dear Stapleton,

These letters are always hard to write especially when they are built upon so much emotion. We started something special at the Bistro on May 14th 2014 we started a need for the community on this corner in the Middle of the Hood and for 3 years we provided an atmosphere for the people of this area to chill and just be adults. Where the community can come together and enjoy food, wine and spirits By Chef Anthony F. Ramos and Cocktails By Jonathan Benson. We have grown because of Stapleton and this is why we love all of you.

Unfortunately our show is coming to an end!

The opening of the Stanly Market Place and the East Bridge Project it was too much too fast for the community to support. We do want to say this “We fully Support these businesses” Especially East Bridge, Cativella by Eilse Wiggins whom is amazing Chef and friend of mine her food is amazing if you have not been there go don’t miss out. Cativella would be a great place for our wine and cocktail community to hang their hats.

I would like to thank all of our staff past and present who have helped us become what we are. Dude Jon and I love all of you guys more than you know!! You were all an amazing part of this team even if it was for only a brief moment. There are too many to mention but thank you all!!!!
