Eagle Rock restaurant owners opening a second place across the street


EAGLE ROCK — Apparently the owners of Four Café didn’t want to stray too far when it came to opening a second restaurant. They are working on opening a new place right across the street from their Colorado Boulevard restaurant, according to public documents.

The new restaurant, called Ember & Peel, will open in a former fitness center at the northeast corner of Colorado and Caspar Avenue, according to a permit application with the City Planning Department. The 70-seat restaurant is seeking city approval to serve a full line of alcohol and operate daily from 7 am to 10 pm.

The applicant, Corey Wilton, also also co-owns Four Café, which he opened with his wife, Michelle, in 2010. Four Café offer organic, seasonal food with vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. But it’s not known what the menu will be like at Ember & Peel.

The Eastsider has contacted Wilton for more details.

  1. I met Michelle at the Atwater Village Farmers Market while she was at the Jimenez Family Farm vendor booth. Happy to know they are making more waves in ER.

  2. Per a comment in the ERNG on FB:
    “there will be two establishments in that location, one is a craft distiller called Relentless and the other Ember and Peel, a wood fire kitchen that will be open for breakfast.”

  3. If the staff at their new location is as friendly and attentive as the young staff at Four Cafe I am sure this new venture will be a smashing success. I have two bits of advice however. First they should hire an architect this time to prepare a thoughtful plan. There are circulation issues at the entrance and register at Four Cafe that cause frustration. They should also be sure to maintain a menu with vegetarian options. I have to believe Turningfire Rotiserie just down the block from Four Cafe would do more business if the menu wasn’t so meat heavy.
