Mark your calendars, one of Denver’s most-anticipated fall restaurant openings has a confirmed debut date, with a second soon to follow.
Ohio-based Cameron Mitchell Restaurants will launch its third expansion into Colorado on Sept. 25. Described as a “bustling Italian café,” Marcella’s will seat approximately 152 inside and 40 out on the patio on the ground floor of the all-new Centric LoHi apartment building. Located at the corner of 18th and Central streets, the restaurant will join the combination bakery, “urban marketplace” and casual dining concept The Bindery from chef Linda Hampsten Fox, long aiming for an October debut and currently testing the menu with fall ingredients.
Describing the Lower Highland neighborhood as “very similar to Columbus’ Short North Arts District,” Marcellla's has imported its own executive chef Jacob Glowacki from the Buckeye State to oversee his menu, featuring pizzas, pastas, lasagna alla Bolognese, chicken Marsala, veal limon, braised veal meatballs and more than 50 Italian wines at the standalone bar.
This site was originally planned to include a second Colorado home of the company's Rusty Bucket casual pub, which debuted at Westminster’s Orchard Town Center in June 2016.
