Belmar adds four restaurants, including World of Beer and Grappa Italian Bistro

Grappa Italian Bistro website
Just in time for breaks during holiday shopping, another round of restaurants has opened in Belmar. World of Beer is now pouring in Lakewood; it's the chain's second outpost in the metro area (the first is in CitySet). Pho Saigon Basil and Rocko's Cantina also opened in the development. And Grappa Italian Bistro has also uncorked there.

The bistro, which opened last month, is run by Maurice Couturier, who also owns Grappa Mediterranean Bistro in Golden. Before going with Grappa, he and his business partner, Ricardo Tondowski, ran restaurants in Aspen, Snowmass and Boulder. The menu focuses on Italian dishes; in addition, happy hour runs from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

And while Wystone's World Teas closed its kiosk on the 16th Street Mall, the brick-and-mortar store is still going strong in Belmar.

I agree with Dave Barnes.  The prices at Rocko's are SKY HIGH, so beware.

Belmar's biggest problem is that "the rent is too damn high". If you read the customer reviews for Rocko's Cantina (née Rocko's Tacos) and for Grappa, it is obvious that they are cutting corners and charging too much.
