Chill: Icehouse Tavern is opening later this month
James Mazzio had hoped that the Icehouse Tavern, the replacement that the Momo brothers are putting into the former home of Via at 1801 Wynkoop Street, would be ready to go by June 1. But the place is going through a complete overhaul -- with award-winning chef Mazzio doing some of the construction work himself -- and now that date has been pushed back a few weeks. But the Icehouse Tavern should be worth the wait.
"We're doing simple comfort food, comfort food the way I came from it," Mazzio explained last month. "Solid ingredients, nothing too foofy, good techniques -- and hearty portions of the stuff. I don't think anyone is doing what we're thinking about to this level."
Certainly not in LoDo. To reach the restaurant, call 303-292-3775.
