After last week’s shocking closing of Richard Sandoval’s restaurants Zengo and La Guerra, it’s time for some good news.
Chad Michael George, Kade Gianinetti and Jared Schwartz — partners in The Way Back and American Grind — announced today that they will be filling the former Zengo space with their new concept Wayward this fall.
The team plans to refresh and brighten the space — expect light and neutral colors with fresh greenery. Wayward’s vegetable-focused menu will be available for dinner and weekend brunch — tapping into local farmer and purveyors that the partners have used in their other concepts. The bar will boast a robust whiskey program. The former La Guerra space will operate as dine-in or to-go for breakfast, lunch and coffee. They have not hired an executive chef.
Wayward will be located at 1610 Little Raven Street, Denver.
