The restaurant space sandwiched between The Cereal Box and Primo Vino on Olde Wadsworth Blvd. in Olde Town Arvada has been vacant since Ophelia’s closed its doors last July.
Now, under the ownership of Scott Spears — the man behind School House Kitchen and Scrumptious — the space is being transformed and finding new life.
“I always want to do something different,” Spears explained when talking about his businesses, which also include retail stores Sock! and Super Zoom Bang Bang.
The new restaurant will be plant-based and go by the name So Radish.
The plant-based menu will feature items such as a tempe ruben, deep fried cauliflower, black bean burgers and pineapple upside down cake. But there will also be the option for meat eaters to add on to their plant-based dishes. There will also be canned beer, kombucha on tap and full cocktail service.
But the food is not the only thing that will be different. Spears is in the process of revamping the whole space to give it a fresh new look with a focus on design and art.
“The goal is to make it funky and weird and different,” Spears said. “It’s really going to be rad.”
Spears said that while the vegetarian concept may scare some people off, he is excited to bring something different to Arvada.
“We are thrilled to see the success of Olde Town resulting in both demand from consumers, as well as the interest from restaurateurs to bring additional diversity of cuisine to the area,” said Daniel Ryley, deputy director of the Arvada Economic Development Association. “It’s apparent that the restaurants in Arvada and Olde Town have helped make it a destination, and adding a plant-based eatery provides even more variety for residents and visitors while also offering more choices to vegan and vegetarian diners.”
As of now, So Radish does not have an opening date.
