Janos Wilder's to focus on dinner and happy hour at Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails.


Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails will end its lunch service after next week.

Chef-owner Janos Wilder, in a Facebook posting today, said the restaurant will serve its final lunches on April 26. After that, Downtown Kitchen will pour its energies into its growing happy hour and dinner business.

“Lunch is not our biggest business; dinner is,” Wilder said tonight, about an hour after making the announcement. “And we’re keeping our eye on the ball where it should be. ... I know we are disappointing people, but I think we are doing the smart and right thing.”

Wilder opened Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails, 135 S. Sixth Ave., in October 2010.
