Despite the half-dozen "For Lease" signs posted in the storefront windows in Old Town Arvada, at least one restaurant is actually moving in. Udi's Bread Cafe
, which already has locations in Stapleton (7357 East 29th Avenue); Louisville (185 South 104th Street); Aurora (12700 East 19th Street); and north Denver (101 East 70th Avenue), is moving into a new retail/restaurant parcel at 7600 Grandview Avenue -- and according to the sign and the guy on stilts who was painting the ceiling, it should be soon. A liquor license hearing is set for Thursday, October 8.
This Udi's will offer something that the other Udi's don't: pizzas, which is awesome news for Arvada bread heads. Meanwhile, Arvada Grill, Alex Gurevich's place that closed early this year
, and sits directly across the street from the soon-to-be Udi's, is still black.
