Elway’s Is Staying: Frequent rumors have been circulating that the upscale restaurant, Elway’s, might be leaving Cherry Creek and moving to the DTC. It appears that these rumors were overstated. Elway’s Restaurant will be signing a five-year extension on its existing lease.
Elway’s has been a local favorite for many years in Cherry Creek; and it quickly became destination dining for people citywide. Many of the menu selections are widely considered to be among the best in metro Denver. Although many new fashionable restaurants have opened in Cherry Creek over the past year, Elway’s still possesses unique menu choices that are distinct from any potential competitors in the area.
Elway’s originally signed a 15-year least at its current Cherry Creek location, and two years remain on that lease. Tim Schmidt, the managing partner of Elway’s, believes that the Cherry Creek Mall is still a dynamic shopping area, and thus it serves an ongoing asset to the restaurants in the immediate area.
