By Deb Hurley Brobst

A new deli has moved into Evergreen Mountain Market.

D-Rass Deli, along with La Cuisine of Evergreen, are open in the space that has seen a variety of delis come and go over the years. 

Owner Laurie Baumer and chef Dylan Shively use the kitchen to prepare a full catering menu of French-inspired meals and appetizers for parties and weddings. Plus, they make breakfast and lunch fare for daily consumption. All sauces are made from scratch, Baumer said.

The best-selling sandwiches are the Reuben and Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, and gyros. There also are daily specials such as soup and sandwiches. Breakfast includes burritos, French toast, and biscuits and gravy.

Baumer has been working in food and event planning for several years. She was the events coordinator for the Brook Forest Inn and ran a deli for a time, too. Shively also is a chef at the Brown Palace Hotel in Denver.

New delivery service available in Evergreen

If you need something picked up or delivered, Evergreen now has a service for that.

Evergreen Delivery Service was started a couple of months ago by three friends who saw a need for a business that could offer a multitude of services. They move and transport items including furniture, deliver food, and perform personal pick-up services such as dry cleaning, prescriptions and groceries. They even have a building for short-term storage.

“We were looking for something we could do ourselves and help people out,” said Trent Frank, who along with Brandon Bianco and Annette Colle started the business.

The service is available just in time for the holidays because they will assemble items, too. 

“Recently we set up a dollhouse,” Frank said. “It was pretty big and really technical.”

They already have done several home moves, and they say they take special care with furniture to make sure it doesn’t get dinged. They also will clean out homes where the tenants have been evicted or pick up and dispose of trash at building sites.

They want to add specialized services such as delivering food, medicine and other supplies to the elderly or sick.

“What we do is unique,” Colle said. “It’s a niche market that I don’t think anybody has tapped into in Evergreen.”

The Office to open in mid-December

Evergreen is getting a new store that provides businesses with an array of services such as computers with graphics software, wide-format copying and conference room rental.

The Office is expected to be open by mid-December on Castle Court above the Wild Bird Store. Owners Kim and John Schoonenberg are excited about their new venture. Kim worked at Business Express in Bergen Park for several years.

She said the store will have high-end graphic computer rentals, plus tutorials so people can learn the software programs. She said that, at Business Express, she learned people would rather do the work themselves.

There also will be experts available to help with graphic design, plus copy machines for big and small jobs.

While there will be a limited number of office supplies and greeting cards for sale, Kim doesn’t want to compete with other Evergreen businesses.

The store is tentatively set to be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday and Friday, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

Evergreen Golf Course getting repairs in wake of flood

Even though the Evergreen Golf Course is closed for the season, repairs are continuing on four holes and a bridge damaged in the September flooding.

The golf course on Upper Bear Creek Road sustained more than $1 million in damage, officials said. Hole 10 is being redesigned, and Holes 5, 6 and 18 experienced minor damage from the runoff and saturated soil. The bridge on Upper Bear Creek Road has been inspected to ensure it is structurally sound.

Denver Golf applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency assistance and has started repairs that the city of Denver is funding. The pro shop and Keys on the Green restaurant are open.

The golf course will partially reopen in March, and officials expect all 18 holes to be open by July 1.
