Colorado Springs to acquire an upscale restaurant | Restaurants, Drinks, Restaurants Reviews | A&E


The long-awaited and redesigned Till Restaurant, 616 S. Tejon St., is scheduled to open on July 13.

“It’s been about two and a half years since this space has been ready for service,” said award-winning executive chef Phil Griffin, originally from England with 25 years of culinary experience with seven Michelin-starred chefs. “We were hoping to be open on July 1, but it was postponed for a few days. “

Devon Spear will be the deputy. He worked at the Marea in New York, a two Michelin star restaurant. During the transition phase, the two chefs ran the kitchen at North Side Social, 9633 Prominent Point, formerly Till Kitchen and Mercantile, which are part of Mitch Yellen’s Altitude Hospitality group.

Griffin is excited about the new, upscale gourmet Till South menu, which includes a variety of small plates, raw sea bass dishes, and entrees such as Griffin’s famous 48 Hour Braised Ribs and Confit Pork Belly.

Till’s new CEO is Brandon Bridges, who is eager to serve diners some of the 640 bottles of fine wine stored in the sleek wall of the wine cooler. The wall creates a separation between the bar and a smaller dining area.

“This small dining room is perfect for small dinners with wine, which we plan to offer,” he said.

The hours will be from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday. Details: 471-2799,
