An outpouring of support kept the restaurant alive.

L’Atelier, Boulder’s nationally recognized French restaurant, has decided to stay in Boulder after making the call to relocate to Denver in early February.

The new location at 2011 E. 17th Ave., formerly Il Posto, is still on track to open next week.

Chef and owner Radek Cerny briefly intended to move L’Atelier to Denver after Boulder shut it down temporarily for underage drinking, the Daily Camera reported.

“He had the option to walk away from the lease; we were just going to focus on Denver,” maitre d’Ryan Hull told the Camera. “But with all the support we felt overwhelmed by it, (and) we felt we had a great support staff that can handle running both places.”

The new Denver location — just named Atelier — will open on April 7, and the old Boulder spot is open again for dinner Tuesday through Saturday.
