Montrose residents love Night Heron, Agricole Hospitality’s chill hangout that opened a year and a half ago with fun international cuisine and tons of cocktails. In fact, they love it for more than the bar-slash-restaurant’s intended offering of shareable plates and late-night drinks — and this fall, owners Ryan Pera, Morgan Weber and Vincent Huynh will slowly transform Night Heron into a neighborhood bistro inspired by the familiar flair and flavors of its Heights counterpart, Coltivare.


Night Heron 2.0 will serve a rotating selection of popular Coltivare dishes, and other “unassuming, friendly, honest food,” per newly minted chef de cuisine Jonathan Pittman, who worked for seven years at Pass & Provisions and most recently spent a year in the Coltivare kitchen. While Night Heron is without a pizza oven, Pittman and his team will be reimagining Coltviare pizza combos on housemade focaccia. Dishes held over from Night Heron’s original menu, like the smoked-gouda burger, and new entrees like pepper-roasted sirloin from 44 Farms will also appear on the menu.

In the coming months, anticipate an expanded wine list, the lounge furniture to be swapped out for additional dining tables, and Night Heron to begin lunch service.
