Denver's Z Cuisine no more?

According to Jason Sheehan in the Westord Z Cuisine closed and the owners and staff opened "A Cote" (not sure on spelling) nearby. Has anyone been? Is it any bigger? Do they have any of the same dishes?

  1. They've been working on that space for a long time. Last spring while it was already under construction one of the staffers told me they envisioned it as a place where people could hang out and drink wine and eat apps (and it would give people a place to sit while waiting for one of the few tables at Z Cuisine), but since the two rooms weren't connected, they hadn't sussed out how to handle that. I guess they decided that it made more sense to just go with the new space and ditch the old one. I haven't been to the newly-reopened A' Côté space yet, but their website has a menu posted at for last Friday the 11th and it looks similar (and very good), although I don't see the cassoulet.

      I love this place!
      hopefully the transformation will be as lovely as the z cuisine was.

        So, just to make sure I understand, it's basically the same place, expanded, different name?
        Still haven't been there; really look forward to it.

      2. I heard this today. So sad. That was one of our favorite places and a big part of the appeal was that idiosyncratic space.

        The closing of Z Cuisine also negates the name of the new place, sinc A Cote means "next to." Next to what?

          Per Westword's Cafe Bites e-mail: Chef/Owner Patrick Dupays has reconsidered and is looking to re-open Z Cuisine with a new staff and keep A Cote open as a wine bar.
