A kitchen fire back in November left it closed for five months, but the Cherry Cricket is ready to come back Tuesday with that same charm that makes it a Cherry Creek staple.

Sure, the owners spent tens of thousands of dollars on some improvements, but don’t worry: that doesn’t mean it will suddenly become a pretentious establishment like others in the neighborhood.

You can see it for yourself at 11 a.m. Tuesday, when the restaurant will celebrate its grand reopening with free cake and champagne (or, as they prefer to call it, cheap sparkling wine).

We have a full schedule of the various reopening events here: http://on9news.tv/2ove1tF

And check out the photo below for a tour of the restaurant before the reopening!
