The Kitchen Restaurant Group this week announced the closing of its newest Denver concept, Hedge Row, just 16 months after opening in Cherry Creek. Hedge Row will serve its last brunch and dinner on Sunday, December 2, at 100 Steele Street. The restaurant’s closure comes in the midst of months of neighborhood construction in Cherry Creek North.
“Unfortunately, we have to say goodbye as the timing has not been ideal given the heavy construction in the area,” co-owner Kimbal Musk wrote in a letter to his company. “Traffic, parking, and congestion were too much for our tiny space on the corner.”
The 4,500-square-foot space opened in July 2017, serving a wood-fired menu of lunch and dinner dishes and adding brunch to the offerings earlier this year. The restaurant’s closure will leave one remaining Hedge Row in business in Indianapolis, while Denver diners will still have the company’s Kitchen Bistro to visit downtown.
In light of Hedge Row closing, Musk said the Kitchen has added some of its sister restaurant’s dishes to the LoDo menu — grilled barbecue pork skewers, little gem salad, and pan-seared salmon among them.
Elsewhere around Denver, the Kitchen just opened its sixth Next Door eatery in Highlands Ranch, and it will add a seventh location of the more casual brand somewhere in North Denver by spring.
