Inventive concept Beckon | Call once hoped to open back in fall 2016, but now turns to this fall to make its debut. Now hiring, the restaurant advises potential baristas, bakers and cooks to prepare for an early November debut.
During the delays, the name has changed from Paired and the mission became more focused, split between two former homes on a 3,312-square-foot lot at 2845 Larimer St. The initial brainchild of Craig Lieberman, founder of the 34 Degree crackers brand, and chef Duncan Holmes, formerly of Frasca Food & Wine, Holmes also enlisted his former colleague Allison Anderson to join him.
The white building on the right of the lot will be known a Call and become the daily focal point for the combination bakery, patisserie, bar and upscale casual restaurant. Next door, Beckon was originally imagined as the host for a future, limited-seating chef's table experience.
