When siblings Paul and Aileen Reilly debuted a new restaurant inside the Hyatt Centric Downtown Denver hotel two years ago, it felt like a real win for the fans of their old Uptown farm-to-table spot Beast + Bottle.
Beast + Bottle, which highlighted seasonal Colorado ingredients, had closed its doors in June 2021, but Apple Blossom, at 822 18th St., was a way for the Reillys to carry on its legacy.
Goodbyes are never easy, especially a second time around. The sibling duo announced on Tuesday that they have decided to close their hotel restaurant on Friday, Dec. 8.
“The Beast + Bottle Group is working with the Hyatt Centric Downtown Denver team to pass on the beautiful restaurant space to hotel operators, who will transition it to a new, more casual dining concept for hotel guests,” the owners wrote on Instagram.
They didn’t reveal the name of the upcoming restaurant, however, which won’t be affiliated with the Beast + Bottle Group.
Apple Blossom’s brunch, lunch and dinner menus celebrated the best of America’s ingredients sourced from regional farmers, ranchers and purveyors.
For those who will miss a famous Reilly brunch, Coperta, the siblings’ Italian restaurant in Denver, started its first brunch service this past weekend. On Saturdays and Sundays at 400 E. 20th Ave. from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., guests can enjoy the food and wine of Rome and Southern Italy, including Roman street fritters and a Sicilian gelato sandwich.
