Lucky Pie is about to make its debut in the former Dixon’s space at 16th and Wazee. The sign in the window says they will open on March 1, next Thursday. And, it looks like the pace of work inside has picked up the challenge to meet that date. That’s when the construction crew leaves to go fishing.
But, they’re not going far. Next door, in fact, to finish out the rest of the cavern left when Dixon’s shuttered last fall. That same crew will begin to build out another restaurant, Blue Sushi Sake Grill, the 7th eatery operated by Omaha-based Flagship Restaurant Group. The work is scheduled to be done in time for a “summer” opening.
Blue Sushi was mentioned some time ago in an article by the Denver Post’s John Henderson. He claimed one of the best sushi meals of the year was had there, in Omaha, while on a country-wide road trip. We may not think often of Omaha as a den for sushi, or for much else. But, Denver does know its fins and wasabi.
If the Downtown Denver version follows the trend of the other Blue Sushi spots, expect to see, also, the Sake Bombers Lounge as another place to hang, drink, eat…and try to hook something.
Denver by the Slice, having profiled recently the 10 pizza offerings about to dominate LoDo, may now have to consider a profile of all the fish, cooked and raw and on the hoof, that’s come about. Pizza and fish. Whatever happened to steak?
(And, congratulations on this Fat Tuesday to 30-years of Marlowe’s at 16th and Glenarm! Celebrations, roll-back prices and music today. They were on the Mall before it was the Mall!)
