Dining Out: With Axios restaurant, Greece again smiles on Denver

Posted on Dec 8, 2011

On the short list of restaurants that Denver’s dining scene could use, another Greek place is not an item that springs to mind. But spend any time at Axios, a smart new room in the Berkeley neighborhood, and you will find yourself thinking: Yes, absolutely. Another Greek place.

Posted on Oct 8, 2011

When three-year-old Brasserie Felix closed in July, it hardly came as a surprise. The always-promising French spot rarely delivered—aside from offering Berkeley residents something other than Mexican, Italian, or American-style eats. But two weeks ago, the space at West 39th Avenue and Tennyson Street reopened as Axios Estiatorio, and the restaurant is already making an impression. The menu—which is headed up by chef Royce Oliveira, a Mizuna and Luca D’Italia alum—transcends the expected gyros and...
