Less than 500 feet from LoDo’s Public School 303 gastropub on 16th Street, the “sustainable seafood and modern bites” of Wewatta Point are on target for an October debut. Already the restaurant, a sister to Public School 303, plants to hire “energetic, guest oriented" staff.
National restaurateurs Grill Concepts Inc. created both concepts, part ofa continuation of an aggressive nationwide expansion plan covering more than two dozen current locations and five separate brands.
The first “Point” restaurant rolled out in Studio City, California, last year, with Wewatta Point soon to arrive at 1601 Wewatta, next to Union Station and designed by Kelly Architects, who oversaw the look of the PS303.
A neighborhood rival to Jax Fish House and McCormick & Schmick’s, Wewatta Point's plan to stand out includes “new wave inspired dishes,” the “freshest seafood and seasonal oysters,” plus “sustainable and organic ingredients.”
Menu favorites out west include crab deviled eggs, cast iron mussels, Ruby Red trout, whole Thai snapper for two, a lobster roll and linguine and clams.
The original Laurel Point location is open for lunch, dinner, weekend brunch and also serves a happy hour menu Monday to Friday with discounted cocktails, beers, wine, apps and rolls.
