About

Welcome!  

Thanks for making the first step of getting to our Kickstarter page!  We have been open since September of 2011 and have had a couple of really great and successful years.  As with anything that succeeds though, we are aware of the fact that we must evolve and change to stay at the top and to continue on being new and interesting.

Our restaurant needs a serious facelift!  We love our community, our loyal regulars and the guests that have only visited us once and have taken note on what's important to them so that they can love us just as much back.  We need a Charcoal Restaurant 2.0! We have the beginnings of these needed changes and updates, but REALLY need the help of you guys, the Kickstarter community to fulfill them.  We have some really awesome and incredibly limited edition rewards for backers that we hope you feel shows our eternal gratitude for your donation.  Here is a breakdown of what Charcoal Restaurant 2.0 NEEDS:

$2,000 - ROOFTOP GARDEN: add new planter boxes, install irrigation system, wind breaks, insulation, soil, seeds.  (P.S. we already provide a very limited amount of fresh produce in the summer months from this garden directly into guest's dishes... we want to be able to do this FULL-TIME with these upgrades).

$10,000 - PATIO: patio vestibule enclosure, plants, awning, permitting. (We don't want Denver to just have another good patio, we want them to have an AWESOME patio!).

$6,000 - INTERIOR: new tables and chairs.  (We know our chairs could be a little bit more comfortable and we hear that!).

$16,000 - INTERIOR: move host stand, re-cable electrical, redo dining room floors, new drapes, insulate windows, paint walls, redo bar shelving, bar lighting, refinish bar. (Phew!  That's a lot.)

$4,000 - PRIVATE DINING ROOM: new paint, refinish tables, flooring, upgrade bathrooms.

$8,000 - KITCHEN: new charcoal grates, new convection oven, 30qt. mixer.  (All of these items are almost at the end of their lives.  All of these items are some of the most critical parts of our kitchen and desperately need to be replaced asap).

$4,000 - HVAC: redirect and create new vent ducts.  Wrap all HVAC pipes.  (Our HVAC has been a problem for us since day one.  Whether it's too hot or too cold or simply just not working, we need update it). 

Thank you so much for learning our story!  We absolutely cannot achieve Charcoal Restaurant 2.0 without you!  

... stay tuned on our blog as we involve you, the backer, in our update process!  We want your input on these updates because we know YOU care the most!

Risks and challenges

We've got this! We know exactly what we need to make our restaurant an even greater dining destination. We know exactly how much everything costs, the people that are lined up to do said work AND the motivation to get it done (and include the community along the way!).
