Golden has a new restaurant for people to have a great meal, good times and a place to relax.

The Wolf’s Den Rustic Mountain Restaurant will be opening on Dec. 6 and is owned by Curt Thorne who also owns The Canyon’s Edge just off Highway 1 in Golden.

When asked why he wanted to have a second restaurant in the town Thorne said, “I have always wanted to buy something in town and I love the history behind this place. I love the building itself and it has a great story. A lot of people in town remember this place fondly and I thought I could do something special here.”

As for the name, Thorne said if people would like the full story behind it they will have to drop by the restaurant.

“There is a story my grandpa used to tell me about a one-eyed wolf. It is on the menu and I tell the story now and then,” he said.

Thorne is excited to build on the reputaton of his first restaurant while also providing something new for the people in Golden.

“It is the same great food we have always done at The Canyon’s Edge but it will be a different concept with the menu. We are doing gourmet burgers with only the best ground beef. The same with all of our steaks. We want to be known as a great place to go for special, unique buyers and some wild game on the menu,” he said. “We are trying to create a dining experience  with a relaxed atmosphere.”

But there will be much more than just food at the restaurant.

“We are going to have some great live music and when there is a big sporting event we will have it on the televisions with the sound up so people can get into the events.”

There is also a second floor to the restaurant which will be a quieter area that can also be transformed into a space for private events.

“It has been totally redone. It is cozy up there. We have room for 100 people upstairs or you can have a smaller party, we can do that as well. We want to be able to do anything people want to do,” Thorne said. “I am very excited. It has been a lot of renovations and a lot of hard work, but I am really excited to be in town and to be able to give people an option they can walk to.”

Thorne also added people will be able to come in and kick back in the large comfortable chairs at the establishment.

“A lot of restaurants try to get people in and out as fast as they can. I am the opposite. I like people to come and stay and have a great time to remember,” he said. “They will be able to enjoy unrefined dining at its finest.”
